Your motherboard probably has a jumper that clears
cmos memory. Check to see that it's not enabled.
The real-time clock module on your motherboard may
also be either defective or not seated properly in
its mounting.

There is one other possibility that I forgot to mention
before. The "new" battery may not be so new. I had
one about a year ago that started losing time (the
clock slowed down) after only about three weeks.
Evidently it had been on the shelf for so long that
it just lost its charge. I put in another new one
and the problem went away. BTW, there are a number
of updated drivers and bioses at Abit's site for
your board at:

Good luck
