Perhaps it is synchronizing with an outside clock

Run this from the command prompt to see:

net time /querysntp

It reverts back to something like 2000.  Don't know the exact date at this time.  Didn't know if there could be a short in the board???

If it is reverting back to a 2000, that is probably the manufacture date of the motherboard (or the bios).    You either have something wrong with the battery or the board.  If it happens when you disconnect power only, it's the battery (perhaps the contacts are bad).  If it happens while the computer is running, it's probably the board.
