haha, overclockin' is not an option right now...it's still got a few glitches....like the bios resets itself now sometimes..and it takes literally 10+ pushes of the power button to get the thing going lol.

Spend the dollar to replace it, and test the power supply while your at it.

pfft buying a battery lol.
all i do when my cmos batts die is
solder 2 AA batteries in a serise (to make 3V) and then solder wires to the cmos bat holder and tape the home made battery to the side of the case. (of course i'd never do this on my good computer, i only do this with my old things, about the same as what you got.
