Default p6iwp-fe MB cmos time

I have a P6IWP-FE motherboard.
My cmos time is acting up. The seconds tick by like 1000's. and I have no clue how to fix it. I know my battery is fine. The time is just counting forward very very fast. It's making my windows not keep time at all. I have to reset every 5 min, because it jumps forward 2 hours. It is driving me mad.

Is my motherboard ruined?

Windows XP Home
512 sdram
810 intel Gph.chip w/h accelerator.

how do you know the battery is fine? have you replaced it with a new one yet and then reset the cmos?

Okay....that's a new one. You will need to attempt to reflash that bios. Go to you mobo manufacturers web site and do a bios update or reflash the bios. MAke sure it is the bios flash for exactly the same mobo model or your mobo becomes a frisbee!!!

BTW. A P3 system? OMG, time to spend some money! Your system resides in the stone ages!!!
