Default motherboard cmos problem *dam*


ok so my computer has been running fine. and just recently my asus a7n8x-x dosnt wont to start.

it goes to the first load screen and just freezes, majority of the time telling me that my cpu freq./voltage (or something like it) isnt set right, BUT ! when i go into bios and look at it it is perfectly fine. ? so i save and exit etc etc reset. and i have the same problem

i found out that it only start when i swap the motherboard cmos pin over. wierd

i dont wont to have to keep doing this and ive read alot of things that havnt helped. my friend said it could be that the battery is old and stuff but it never crossed my mind that it had much to do with it.

any ideas because i dont wont to spend money on my computer if i dont have to.

You could try flashing or updating the BIOS.
