The issue here is: whenever i switch off my psu or unplug the computer from the wall, all the settings i have saved to my bios are gone, and reset back to system default. so i then gotta change the time and everything back etc. . Is that probably due to a dead cmos battery? the board is brand new. maybe i should try to take the battery out and reseat in to make sure the connections are thorough. And btw, the clear cmos jumper is in the "retain" position.
