    Hi all again

    Long time no see

    I have an issue that has come to light on one of my systems I have lent to my sister.

    It is a reasonable spec system AMD xp3200+ Asus A7v880 mobo and it started to lose its date settings my immediate thought was to replace the CR2032 Bios Back up Battery and all seemed to be fine until the next day, same problem losing date and time settings , it is hit and miss or so it seems sometimes it is fine for days and other times not.

    So any ideas as to a plan of action :) would be greatly appreciated

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Did you remember to "save the settings" before exiting?

    Yes I did thanks,

    I set up all the Bios settings again not a big task as there are only a few settings to change and hit F10 to save and exit and it was fine until it was next turned off overnight and then the next morning it had lost it's date and time settings etc I think I will check out the MOBO website and see if there are any Bios updates available that may address this problem it could be that the threshold voltage is set too low.

    Other than that it works absolutely fine

    Have you had any others mention this specific MOBO ?
