System clock behind

Over the past few days I've noticed that my system clock has fallen behind four or five minutes from the actual time. I know this because i use the clock as an integral part of my daily computing. This problem has only occured recently,although. The clock has usually kept very close to the standard(naval clock). What could be some causes of such a delay?

There is a battery power supply for CMOS circuits on the mainboard. It is very probable this battery is weak, thus the clock not running properly.
