Sounds like the CMOS battery may be dying.

Just a guess.

Is there any other signs of this, because their PC has been acting up lately

well it may result in odd messages during boot but it shouldn't really mess with things too much aside from settings stored in CMOS that may have been lost e.g. USB ports may have been disabled. i agree, it sounds like a dead CMOS battery.
