Actually the battery only is used when the computer is powered off and disconnected from the mains (unless the technology has changed over the years).
There is always power to the M/B (a trickle charge so to speak) when the computer is plugged in. Notice that there are LED's on the M/B that are powered on at all times - even when the computer is turned off.
If there is power to the M/B the battery is not used.
If I am wrong, please correct me. (-:

There's no way to answer that for sure without more info from you.
Before anyone whose clock is running slow rushes out to buy a new
battery, he should first take note of whether he is losing time while
the computer is running or while it's powered off. If it's while
powered off, the problem *is* very likely the battery. But if it's
while running, it can *not* be the battery, because the battery isn't
used while the computer is running.
If the clock loses time while running, try this:
Open a command prompt window (Start | Run | cmd) and enter the
net stop w32time
net start w32time
