Computer Keep Reloading Drivers for New Card on Every Boot!

Ok, I've had a odd problem was related to a battery on my mainboard. Everything time I boot up my computer reloaded all the drivers to the various things I've added in the last few months. I'm not sure when this started as I often would simply turn on the computer and then come back in a few minutes. But this past week I've added a wireless card and it took a while to get the card to work . I had to reboot quite a few times and each time, the drivers had to reload for both the card and my mouse. I tested it with a new video card and the same happens. The old video board doesn't have this problem. I put in a new battery thinking the problem was related to an old battery but nothing has changed. The computer is running Windows XP Pro and I have 1 gig of RAM. The CPU is an AMD 2600. Does anyone here have asuggestion for me to try? It's getting annoying having to click this and that each time I reboot!
