    Default Asus p5Q sometimes reset date and time

    Hello, I got a problem here from a shot circuit of my Stavol Cable (soft starter)

    I was using Windows XP 32bit sp3, and got force-turn OFF the computer 3times in a row,
    and i got a boot failure so I reinstall the XP sp3 and delete all the partition like a new, but there's some kind of problem i never met before such as failure to install some programs, so i choose to upgrade my OS to the new one, win7 64bit Ultimate and solve the problem, no boot failure and no installation error

    before I decide to re-install the OS, I search some blog which could re-solve the problem from a booting failure, one of the method is clean my RAM slot>detach my CMOS battery>clear CMOS and all three methods cannot made me enter the desktop, only a setting to 'Megatrend, press f1 or f2 to load default setting etc i don't remember but its a kind of black blank page with American Megatrend option on it..

    and the next problem occur, with my Win7 64bit Ultimate it often reset the Date and Time even i press f2 to load the last saved setting in the Megatrend page at the first time before the pc entering desktop (this Megatrend menu not always appear, it is random 1 to 6days, but when it appear, it reset all my date and time setting)

    is it any hardware damaged or any jumper/battery not properly plugged? because i never do reset cmos battery and jumper before..

    any solution? thx

    Here is my PC spec:
    Asus P5Q
    Processor Core2Duo E8400
    RAM 2x1gb
    Ati Radeon HD4670 512mb
    PowerSupply 450watt Asus

    CMOS battery could be dead. Replace it and go from there.

    I'm not sure but I think I had a similar problem when my RAM required more voltage than standard.

    I had to borrow (in the end I bought) some cheap RAM that allowed me to get into bios and increase the memory voltage.
