I have my PC in the house, installing all that I have to install. I notice though when i first turned it on, the date was wrong. I fixed it, then thats it. Yesterday I noticed the PC fell behind in time. I fixed it, then turned on the PC today. It was about 5 hours behind. Is this a result of my CMOS battery dying? If yes, aren't these things supposed to last a long time? What sucks is that the CMOS battery is in a special casing with 2 wires sticking out of it that go to the mobo. All I have to do is change the battery and maybe use electrical tape, or is there a universal replacement I can buy? I also notice that when the time gets funky, my Windows will go back to regular XP skin, but if I restart, it will load up the classic skin, which I am using. Any help would be appreciated!
