Windows 7: BIOS time and date reset after boot OS.

Windows 7
BIOS time and date reset after boot OS.

I have notebook HP Pavilion dv6 2020ev Corei7, and Im not able to set up correct time and date. When I set date in BIOS and start Windows 7 there is time difference (few minutes sometimes, few hours etc. but every time different). When I turn off nb (also remove battery) time in BIOS is still OK. But when I start Windows 7 there is difference. BIOS time is ok till I change time or date in Windows 7. And this is big problem, when I update time or date in Windows 7, then after new boot BIOS time and date is reset to 00:00 01/01/2009. Ive tried everything, update BIOS, fresh installation of Windows 7, change time internet sync settings, change the Hard, RAM,... after a lot of research, i decided to change the bios chip next to the "Control Keyboard chip" on motherboard ( i download last Bios version from HP, and program it), problem not solved.
after that i changed the other BIOS chip. problem not solved again.
finally i change the "Control Keyboard chip" (ENEKB3926QFD2) and unfortunately problem still alive.

note: Sometimes, when I work with my notebook date and time changes it go future or past.
i changed the battery on mother board, No effect.

sorry for my english.

please HeLp Me.

If the CMOS battery change doesn't fix it, I supposed it's possible, since BIOS time is memory mapped i/o, that some privleged process with a wild pointer is writing into it. But I'd say that is a long shot.

Their are infection that can cause this problem. If all else fails you could go to the Security section on this Forum.

The RTC or Real Time Clock chip on the motherboard is defective. Good info at Wiki on this. This is a small chip normally close to the battery that maintains the system time.
