OK, here goes...I have a 2 yr old custom build system with winxp pro, every so often when booting up the system itstops the load and asks for the dfault or set up...when I go into set up the date and time are always defaulted to the date I bought the system...re setting the correct date and time and the rest of the manual settings lasts until the next boot up or for the next month :thumbsup: . This always happened and always at random times. I replaced the system batteries and it still happens...any ideas?

Thanks, but as I said, I already had the battery changed and the problem still remains.

You may have a defective new battery. Check the J7 jumper on the motherboard and make sure the jumper bridge is in place. Without it your computer BIOS setting will reset everytime you turn the computer off.
