System Time & Date require reset on bootup

March 7, 2011 at 04:31:23
Specs: N/A
Every Boot-up shows this msg:
Press F1 to set the Bios
Press F2 to continue.

On Pressing F2, the PC Boots-up normally but the Date is set to 2002 Sept. 01 andTime is set to 06-00-00.

Except for this the PC works very well.

Motherboard is ASUS : M2N68-AM SE2, OS: WINDOWS XP-PRO, RAM 2 GB. Replacing the Motherboard Battery and trying out a NEW identical Motherboard did not overcome this problem.

Would appreciate guidance to overcome this problem. Thanks in anticipation.

Likely the CMOS/BIOS battery has almost died. You'll need a new one to hold the time properly. You also may lose the BIOS settings if the battery fails completely.
