I'm having an issue with my motherboard on my computer. Every time I turn it off it forgets what the bios settings are and I have to go in and reset them. Does anyone happen to know what would cause this problem.

what motherboard do you have and do you have anything overclocked?

Im asking because ive read in many forums about my board (p35 ga-ds3l) doing that some thing. Most of the cases result from too aggressive or bad overclocks. Ive also heard people fixing it by reseting cmos. Luckily it doesnt happen to me.

no its not overclocked. Its the 680sli from EVGA. I thought it might be the battery so i took it out to get a new one but no where on this island sells the 3v like that so i figured i would ask if it might be something else before i go and order one.

Not sure about yours specifically, but usually it's a CR2032 battery.
You should be able to obtain one of those with little effort or expense ;)

i would say look through the manual and make sure all the jumpers and such are set right and that all connections are proper seated, could be a short somewhere

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
