computer clock changing

Specs: xp, 1.5 gig amd

The clock on my computer is changing itself automatically, but not to the right time. I'll change it to the right time, either manually or by syncronizing it to internet time, but within 10 -15 seconds it will jump back about an hour and a half. HELP!!!

The most likely culprit for this type of problem is the CMOS battery.

I thought of that but I thought it would just stop working. I'll have to get a new one. Thanks.

CMOS battery usually do not drop dead. Rather, it slowly gets drained out. The earliest symptoms of the battery dying is the clock being resetted on its own.
