G4 Dual 450, Gigabit Ethernet, OS 10.11, 1.5GB Memory

I replaced the battery on the motherboard because the clock was wrong on boot ups - I got the message that the "wrong clock setting would probably mess up program functioning properly." So, a new battery several weeks ago seemed to solve the problem.

Surprised to see the same error message again yesterday. Any thoughts on why the clock is not staying where I set it? Would a worn out hard drive cause this?
I am replacing the hard drive today, but hope someone has some experience with this issue in the mean time. Thanks

Thanks. I'll do that, then the other fixes mentioned at that site if it doesn't rectify the situation.
