We need more information.

What make of PC ?
What have you tried?
Does your Motherboard have a diagnostics program ?
Is the system and old one or a new one ?
Did it suddenly just start happening ?
What has changed?

Try using the default settings for your bios.
Double check that the jumpers are correct.
Remove as much hardware as you can, and test with the bare minimum. If this doesn't work please give as much info as possible.

If you've already tried replacing the CMOS battery, the only other solution I know is to replace the motherboard.

It is possible, but not likely, that some other hardware component is causing the problem but most commonly it's just leaky CMOS memory on the motherboard.

If you have a jumper to clear the CMOS settings, try removing and reseating the jumper. There may be some corrosion on the pins.

I've come across a couple of these. When changing the CMOS battery doesn't work, we always end up having to replace the motherboard. For some reason your CMOS is corrupt or just too old. It could be a manufacturing problem that they didn't detectat the factory. Sorry I couldn't give you better news.

Good luck!

Try flashing the bios to a new updated version. You can usually find updates on the manufacturers web page. Sorry i couldn't help anymore. I need more info.
