Yes ,I have heard of it happening. You wouldn't think it would speed up but people claim it has happened. Could have been a bad battery from the get go or the mobo was on the shelf for a long time. For the price of a new battery it's probably worth it just to eliminate it as a cause of your problems. Have you got another mobo to rob a battery from to test it?

Yes....thanks for the replies. I'm going with the software solution first and then this second. Hopefully the battery aint on the fritz.
