    I am about to change the MB battery for the third time. I'm pretty sure its drained again as if I switch off the mains power to the unit overnight, the system reports checksum error on start up and loads bios defaults. System calendar reverts back to 31 Dec 2005, with duff clock time

    If I leave the PC turned off but connected to power socket, everything is fine for the next start up

    I have a foxconn 975 MB. Any ideas what could be causing the batteries to drain so soon - should last several years :confused:

    Probably a fault in the MB, there's not much you can screw up that will do that. I'd be shopping for a new MB. :)
