What model of PSU have you got there, Dessie?

~ The manual said "Requires Windows '95 or better" I installed Linux!

Regarding the first problem, here is something to try that I found on

1. Go into the BIOS and set all of your IDE channels to AUTO.
2. While still in the BIOS, disable Quick Boot.

I recently began having the same problem with my K7S5A. I haven't changed the battery yet because so far this fix appears to have worked. I have seen instances where the PSU has also helped the process but I already have a quality Antec 400W so if this doesn't work, it'll be replace the battery.......and then replace the board.

Try the BIOS changes first. See whether or not it works for you. So far, I've been up and running three days since making the change myself.
