clock battery going would be the CMOS battery on the motherboard. i'm willing to bet if this battery is dieing, that that could be whats causing problems 2 and 3.

not sure about 4 and 5 tho.

Compaq, *sigh*--worse computer manufacturer ever. I had a new Compaq laptop that burned out on me. It's barely a year old!!!!!

If your batteries are dying on a monthly basis, then your either using dud batteries (doubt it) or you have a dodgy mobo. All of them problems could be related to that in some way.
