    You have a defective motherboard... Replace it

    Lol. That's one of the wierdest mobo problems I've heard lately...

    Like Tmagic says... replace it. Although I don't know if MSI will let you exchange it, because the glitch is so small.

    He could pull the CMOS battery... but if that fails, the CMOS chip is probably bad, resulting in a motherboard replacement

    I've not heard of this either, it certainly is a strange problem :D

    I know I've come in a bit late to help but goodbye, hewybo, I wish you well for the future.
