Sounds like your battery needs replacing.

if not, you should check if your CPU is a remark one or not;
or if you use a SLOT-370 card With your cpu, pls try a new card.

One is a (p5i430tx titanium I B) and a (p5i430vx/250DM explorer II ) boards that support p75-233mmx. one I thought had the jumper set to clear the bios, so I jumpered it and burned two traces on the board. before this it would drain a battery in 3 days.
the other board had a cpu fan that went bad and overheated a power transistor that supplies the cpu Vss. now it takes longer for it to ramp up the vss (starts at 1.75~) to get to 2.87~ volts.
test cpu is a p166 mmx 2.8v.
no hurry, every 3 months I pull these boards back out and scratch my head some more.
