After power electric was cut one PC had 2054 as year and the user coldn´t log in the domain because of this (month and day were right). I have changed the CMOS battery to check if I shut down the computer the year is the same but it is 2002 (and it changes month and day). Is posible that when there is a electrical power outage the BIOS reset only the year to 2054 because the month and the day were right?. What kind of CMOS does this?

A failing CMOS battery can throw all kinds of strange, intermittent abd unrelated faults.  Replace the battery and enter the BIOS to get everything set properly and remember to save when you're done.
