    You built it a year ago, but did you use brand new parts?

    In addition, if you do not leave your PC plugged in, it would be constantly draining the CMOS battery. A year is still too soon though, that's why I question whether you used an existing motherboard.
    Discharge the CMOS battery by not having the PC plugged in? First I've heard that one.

    I think the battery is good for years, with the PC disconnected from the grid.

    Hey everyone. I forgot to say for the past couple days, whenever I restart my PC it says it fails to load correctly and there's options to restart my PC and see advanced options.

    Do you have any important files on your computer? If you do and you are able to get to them, save them somewhere (free cloud services online are great for this!).

    Consider clean installing the OS again (wipes all data and programs, everything). This will give your OS a fresh start, and often fixes the problems. Afterwards, install the drivers that it needs (ask if you aren't sure how).

    If I was in this situation I would remove the battery for over 5 minutes maybe 10 just to be safe, this will reset your bios including bios passwords and settings, after waiting for five minutes or so I would then connect the battery, close the system up and power it up, enter your bios and set the correct time/date, don't fiddle around with any other bios settings just yet, after your system has booted up make sure the time and date is synced with the internet, now check for any updates via windows update, if all has worked well you can now change your bios settings.

    The cmos battery will drain regardless of being plugged in or not
