   Could be a flat battery. Does the time count on from that when you power
up? Some early motherboards had a re-chargeable NiCd soldered to the board,
often seen with chemicals around the failed seals, some early clock chips
had a lithium battery packaged above the IC, more recent boards have a
replaceable cell. The grease from your skin can damage or short circuit the
cell, so do not touch it with your fingers.
