Default mobo bios battery

dangit, i was screwing around with my settings again and tried testing the 12.5 multiplier and the bios fails with that setting, so i was going to clear it again like i had before, well this time it's not saving my settings, everytime i edit the bios and save it, it won't restart, or start at all, i have to keep clearing the bios to get it going again, could the battery be bad now because i've been handling it with my fingers too much?.. even when i turn my computer off without editing bios, i still have to clear the bios to get my pc to boot up.. weird..

Sounds like me, always got to push it faster, lol. Seriously, almost sounds like there is a problem with you bios chip if it not saving. Not really qualified to answer though.
