Solved Clock not keeping time-CMOS not the issue.

Specs: Windows 7
I worked on my PC for weeks, to try to stabilize the clock. Replaced CMOS last night, needed it for my 8 yr old Dell Optiplex 790. Nothing helped, purchased Advanced SystemCare for 20 bucks last night thinking it has to be a virus, ran all components of it and it found nothing. Says my system is in great health. I was about to flash my BIOS, got all directions on how to do it, and I just happened to reset the clock again, when I noticed I had an additional clock running, removed it and it cleared up my clock issue!!!!! Hope this helps even just one person!

Never heard of that before - - why did you install another clock in your PC when it already had one?

Anyway -- glad you fixed it.

✔ Best Answer
Great to hear that you figured it out.
Just for clarity for everyone else: you apparently replaced the CMOS battery (not the CMOS which is a chip on the motherboard).

"CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) is the term usually used to describe the small amount of memory on a computer motherboard that stores the BIOS settings." (Lifewire.com from Googling term)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
