    Yes (CMOS battery), but it is unlikely the battery, those rarely ever run out of juice. I have batteries in mobo's that have been going for 10 years.

    Try overclocking your processor. (j/k unless you know what you are doing).

    I use this to adjust manually since mine runs fast, which I suspect is due to my overclock.

    If you have Windows XP, double-click your time and choose Internet time and set that to a time server. Then even though your time will drift, it will reset it periodically. You can also google for 'windows ntp'
