Hi there, we have a strange problem. We would like to use a power bar to turn on all of our computer system. (referred to as 'Boot ON Power Restore in BIOS) so that we don't need to push power button on the computer. However, every time we do this, the clock is reset.

 

We checked the battery on the motherboard which is usually the problem but it is outputting the required 3V.  ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard.

 

Any suggestions that could help us solve this problem?

 

 

Thanks for any help.

Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 CPU  950 @ 3.07GHz

CMOS battery no longer works. Consider replacing it.

Hi Nick, as previously stated we know that is usually the problem. "We checked the battery on the motherboard which is usually the problem but it is outputting the required 3V."

 

However, the rest of the CMOS keeps its settings, only the time/date change.

I would replace, regardless of what the registered output might be...it's less than $5 and probably worth it in terms of attempted solutions, IMO.
