is the BIOS battery on your mainboard still the original from  2003 or 2005 ???

an empty battery can lead to all sorts of wierd behavior.

Rebuster refers to this:
Spoiler                     

Go to the next electronic store and ask for a bios battery (maybe you should bring the old one with you, so you get a correct one. Dont know if there are different models). You will find it somewhere on your mainboard. Replace it and see if it works for you.
