Clock Problem

I seem to be having a problem with the clock on the PC.  It keeps time while the PC
is on but after the computer is off for a while the time is incorrect when restarted.  
The time is off by a few hours.  I haven't verified it but it seems to be off by about the
amount of time the PC was off.  

I know that a bad battery can cause the time to be bad but I've usually seen the time go
to 1980 and the other BIOS settings die at the same time which is not happening here.

My question uis whether there may be some cause other than the battery going bad
that could cause these symptoms.

The clock in the PC is not very accurate to begin with...but if your battery is just degrading and not completely dead it could be giving you the indications you are seeing.
It may be an indication of future battery failure.
How old is the mother board?
