HP Pavillion 5170 problem with system clock not keeping time

Hello

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
