MObo eats batterys

  1. Hi everybody
    I have tried checking all the jumpers and switches on the mobo but they all checkout ok according to the Manual.
    The battery on the motherboard will only last around 5 to 7 days before it becomes flat and I have to set the date and the time every time I start up.
    Thanks

    AMD Athlone 1400 CPU

    What type of Power Supply do you have?

    This might sound silly, but did you replace the CMOS battery with a new one?
