Time and date resets when i restart the pc?

Whenever i turn my windows7 pc on, it tells me to set the time and date settings. After a google search it's mostly likely my CMOS battery is dead, so i bought one off ebay and installed it but i'm still having the same time and date errors...

Can anybody help?

Did you go into Bios setup during Boot-up, and set the date & time for your time zone, there first. Then when in Windows set it to the same date & time as the Bios setting.

You don't get to pick a time zone in the Bios settings, I just said to set the time & date for the zone you are presently in.

Is this a desktop or laptop computer ? Did you get the new battery installed properly ?

Are you getting this message during Boot-up, before Windows starts ?

Time Resets to GMT On Restart
I have an issue with Windows 7. Whatever time I set Windows 7 to (i.e. Eastern Time, Western Time, Coordinated Universal Time, etc.), on restart it sets itself to GMT, while still showing that I've selected the previous time zone I set (i.e. Eastern Time). Any help would be appreciated.
