Hello Goldie106

The main cause for a computer to lose time is a weak or dead CMOS battery on the motherboard.

The purpose of the CMOS battery is to keep the BIOS settings such as time, date, and hard drive parameters alive when the computer is powered down

are you sure the battery is fitted correctly ??? and the battery is in good condition ...

Secondly , Have you checked your time zone setting ? , make sure it is set to the time zone you are in or it will simply automatically reset itself when the computer is turned off...

Good luck
&
Happy Computing!!!

Being on AC power versus battery should not make a differance.

I know you said the battery is new, BUT, does it have the proper voltage (it could have been an old 1 they gave you). Hopefully not though.

Also, as asked already, is it installed properly?

If all that is correct, I suspect that you have a bad mother board, or something is draining it fast (such as a bad mother board),

Hello Goldie106

As asked by 123Runner: "does it have the proper voltage " ???

Anthony19

If the batt is inserted/fitted correctly and the right voltage is obtained , i would be leaning toward a defective MOBO... also stated by 123Runner
