    definitely sounds like mobo battery
    some last 6 months, some 6 years, it is just pure luck when they go. I have had cases where I changed the battery & 3 months later, it was flat, other times it lasted 5 or 6 years

    It should be a 2032 battery available just about anywhere; even walmart. Once you replace the battery, pw ON and enter the bios. Set time, date, boot order and any other custom bios settings you need such as sata mode, any overclocking settings, etc. Save settings and restart.
