Possibly a flat CMOS battery. It's a little round silver battery (like a watch battery) that clips on to the motherboard. Replace it with a new one.

Are you connecting the drive to the RED SATA II connector?

So, lets recap. Are you still having the same hard drive issue with all the same hardware?

Did you verify the boot drive is installed to the RED SATA connector?

Do you have more than one internal or external hard drive?

Next time this happens boot into the BIOS and verify all the settings are just like they were the last time you reset them. If the date changes then you have an issue with the CMOS battery. Either it is no good or you may have it installed upside down.

Post the settings you are using for the drives. Do you have any IDE drives installed?

Please answer ALL questions. Do you have more than ONE hard drive?

When you install the hard drive again, do you need to reset the boot order?
