I have replaced the battery on my Asus Tusi-m machine and reset the time in the bios. When I reboot, it reverts back to 2000. Any suggestons?

reset bios defaults, or reset the cmos by using the mobo jumper per manual.

Perhaps the battery compartment has dirty contacts. Remove battery and clean with a little isopropyl alcohol.

1. Make sure your reset jumber is NOT in the reset position.
2. Use a 'new' battery.
3. Check your power supply voltage with a digital multimeter (5v Red, 12v Yellow)
4. Possible bad motherboard or bios chip if these things don't work.
