I have an IWILL P4S motherboard.
I keep replacing the motherboard battery otherwise the bios settings get lost.
The Problem is that new batteries do not last more than 3 weeks.
Is this a problem of the motherboard?
Any suggestion?

Look for a screw sitting between your case and board, or some slag metal across two of the cmos leads. Sounds like you have a slight short in the battery circuit.
