Sounds like you are not saving the settings when exiting the BIOS.

If it's not holding the date in bios setup that almost always means you need a new cmos battery. If you haven't already done so, replace it. If you've replaced it already and are having the problem then something else is going on. Hopefully it's something simple like not saving the settings as OtheHill suggests.

More than likely the CMOS battery is bad & needs to be replaced. Error codes can be found here:

And I've gotta ask - why are you still running SP2?

Replaced CMOS battery. Now OK, EXCEPT new error 1806 appears: PCI/PnP Error!
PCI in slot 01, Bus 03, Device 05, Function 00. No visual effect thusfar, but would
appreciate advice to remedy the apparent conflict. Thanks and PS : All
replies thusfar are "best answers".

This came up as one reason for an 1806 error:

Might also be a bios setting that was lost due to the dead battery. There's usually a bios default or setup default for the settings. See if you can configure it that way.

Or if you do have an add-on card in slot 1 try moving it to another slot if one's available. That changes its resources and perhaps also the conflict.
