Motherboard drains CMOS battery too fast?

I already replaced my CMOS battery yesterday and the last time I replaced the battery was 1 1/2 months ago. I'm using an Energizer brand one. I want to know what's happening in my motherboard since due to experience I know that CMOS batteries last for atleast 1 year.

mb: foxconn g41mxe
cmos battery brand: Energizer Cr2032 3v

  1. I think their is earthing (ground current) problem of your pc. Check earthing is proper.
    Check if mobo screw connect with cabinet.
    Change battery different store and some other brand.
    It is usually motherboard fault if cmos battery drains quickly.
