Can improperly seated sound card drain CMOS battery?
Hi, I have a 2 month old ASUS Z87-Expert motherboard. Today the clock went off by 2 hours. I reset it and rebooted and it was soon off again. I got a new battery and put it in the motherboard. As I was closing the case (with the machine running properly), the sound card must have been shorted or something because as I put the side panel on, the speakers started putting out a loud noise. I shut the machine down and reseated the sound card and now all is well.
My question is this: Did the badly seated sound card cause the drain in the CMOS battery?
I should mention that I moved recently and the computer was probably jostled. I thought I had reseated everything after the move, but apparently not. Thanks for your thoughts.

If it aint broke, dont fix it.
If it works now, I wouldnt worry about it.
Thanks Deemo, I was just thinking maybe somebody had more knowledge than me about this and could tell me what happened.
