Hi Scrooge2
Sometimes people blame the backup battery, on the mother board. Has it started mucking other things up in your settings apart from the clock?

If the clock is slowing down, then it sounds as though you need a new CMOS battery, SCROOGE2.

Close the other thread you have going, else things will get confusing.

Yes i agree with Migwell,sounds like the cmos battery is dying.
