Most probably a problem with your BIOS, CMOS battery, motherboard or hard
disks given that it's a computer from ~2003 >:-)
Can you boot your installed system from a LiveCD?
Also, you can try a complete power-off (shutdown the computer, remove the
power cord, wait 5/10 minutes, re-connect the cable) and then try to
start it again.
