Hi my vista based desktop's system clock stops working when pc is shut down and when switched on the next time the clock starts but at the time of the last shut down I am thinking maybe the MB lithium cell is running down but thought I'd check here first. regards

Definitely the BIOS battery.

Certainly sounds like motherboard cmos battery. Replace it, you can buy them for a couple of quid in supermarkets or cheaper still at poundland.
