we know what we are talking about . for starters the capacitors on the motherboard pertaining to CMOS can hold a charge for about 10 minutes on their own so your settings can be retained without battery or mains power for about 10 minutes. the battery IS NOT rechargeable and has a nominal life time of around 1-2 years if it were just powering the CMOS on its own. but this is all beside the point. if clearing CMOS doesn't work RMA the board.

ok then good luck. stick around the forums, post anymore questions and we'll help out if you have any more trouble from now on in. sorry about that whole little battery argument. i'm a very opinionated and defensive person, god bless the internet for giving people like me a voice that others listen to.
