Hi, i just bought a used pc to play swtor. When it gets unplugged I would have to change the time on the bios and the lcd says cmos error. What steps should I take or do to find out what the problem is and fix it? I've replaced the small battery on the board and it is the same.

- Intel Q6700 Core 2 Duo Processor 2.66Ghz
- Patriot G-Series 4 x 2GB (8GB total) system memory DDR2 800Mhz 5-5-5-12 timing

Looks like it is resetting BIOS every time so check your new battery.

also be a sign of the bios chip is going bad. I would look at the bios rev of the mb and then re flash the bios to the newest one for that mb.
