I have an HP Pavillion 5170 laptop. Recently, the system clock started losing time while the power was off. I figured it was the motherboard battery going bad, so I have just replaced it. I reset the time/date in the BIOS, and it started up fine. However, the problem is persisting. It is getting pretty bad; if I leave it off for an hour, it 'thinks' that only 20 minutes or so have gone by. Is there another battery I need to replace? Thanks!

I am having the same exact problem... strange.. as it changes time on its own.. not on rebooting per se
