OK, so which are you doing? And after you do it, are you able to get into Windows? When you restart, does it happen all over again? I'm guessing your CMOS battery is weak & needs to be replaced. See if the voltage is monitored in the BIOS, it should be 3v or close to it. The battery is between the blue PCIe x16 slot & standard PCI slot. You can see it in this pic:

To reset the CMOS, if that becomes a necessary step, I believe ASUS has jumpers that will allow you to do that. On my board at least, the reset CMOS jumper is at the bottom of the motherboard near the front USB inputs/system header panel (hdd led, pwr led, pwr button, etc). To do this properly you are going to want to:

1) Turn off your power supply and disconnect the power cable.
2) Let the system sit for at least 45 seconds without power
3) Remove the jumper for RESET_CMOS from pins 1-2 and place them on pins 2-3 for about 15 seconds.
4) Remove the jumper and put it back onto pins 1-2, reconnect the power cable to the PSU, and turn it on.

EDIT: You will get a message about the CMOS checksum and you will need to re-enter the BIOS to load the default settings or reload your desired settings before you will be able to boot into Windows.
