In a computer, loss (or failure to retain) settings like these are caused by a faulty CMOS battery. I haven't taken apart my DS yet (cannot find my tri-wing screwdriver), but I haven't found evidence of one in the DS. So I would say these are the most likely causes:
1) DS uses a solid-state chip (requiring no power) to hold data, and that chip is defective, or
2) The battery that supplies power to hold the data is defective, whether it's a button cell, built-in, or the easily-replaced Li-Ion.

If this is a brand-new DS, try charging the battery for a while first. if it's an older one that you've had and used before and this problem only recently surfaced, I would try replacing the battery first (borrow a friend's), and if that doesn't work, the unit may need to be serviced by a professional. Keep your ear to the ground, and hopefully someone who actually knows a fair bit about DS repair may have better advice for you!

Nintendo ds contsantly needs resetting


You may need service. I am unfamiliar with the DS, but it sounds like a CMOS battery issue.
I recommend that you leave it on the charger for a day or two and see if you still get the problem. If that doesn't help, I recommend you call Nintendo.

I would first try to reset the ds to factory settings.
Reset Factory Settings for Nintendo DS 1. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the back cover.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Wait a few seconds.
4. Replace battery.
5. Turn on DS.
6a. If you have to re-enter your nick-name/time and date etc, it has worked! Go to 7.
6b. If not, remove the battery again and wait longer.
7. Replace cover and screw back in place.

I've heard of this happening before but usually intentionally done in order to manipulate time in games that make use of real world time change.

Sounds like it reset itself which means you have to start over again on your games. Sorry.
