    Sounds like the CMOS battery or power supply might be going bad just guessing. If you go through what you've been doing with the case open and the CPU fan spins when the machine is turned on, that's a good sign that it's likely the PSU as well.

    But, try the cheaper thing first, which would be replacing the CMOS battery.

    If you're not sure of what you need, bring the battery to the store with you to make sure you get exactly what your board needs.
