I have a home built system running XP home with AMD Athlon 64 5800 cpu and 1G ram. I have not been able to get the time and date to stay current. I have set it both from the taskbar and in the bios. No matter which place, it keeps changing to any old odd hour and date. Since this is a new motherboard, I assumed the cmos is good but have not actually checked it. Any thoughts as to why the time and date will not stay put?

Thank you in advance,

Could be the cmos battery. Replace it and see if that works to resolve the issue.
Batteries don't cost much, so if it doesn't work, at least you will not have spent a lot of money
on it.
