Bios battery replaced after 2 years from new.
Lasted 6 weeks - replaced again - Bios battery low message showing after 2 weeks!Is there something else going wrong?

Did you move the BIOS reset jumpeers when you replaced the old battery? If so, did you put the jumpers back to where they were originally?

Check in your motherboard manual that the BIOS jumper(s) are in the correct position as having it in the reset may short out the battery and result in a very short life.
