  1. The time and date not saving or resetting in the BIOS is most often a sign that you need a new CMOS battery. They're a common coin cell battery CR2032 that costs maybe $2-3US at almost any electronics store, and even several larger retail stores.
  2. Thanks cl-scott, apparently i had changed the CMOS battery before the OS reinstallation. i suppose the battery was bad or fake. i'll get another one and check.
