: Replaced CMOS battery with a new one on a M590 ( pcchips motherboard ). Still losing settings. On bootup it says CMOS Batt Low, have tried two new Batteries and run the machine for several hours, still lose settings.

: Any help much appreciated.

You probably have a bad diode that is draining your CMOS battery. Cheap and easy "solution" is to leave the PC ON (use a UPS). Difficult solution is to find and replace the diode; if you want to do that you can probably find help by posting on the EYO Tech Forum at:

Good Luck,
