    Hello Adrian,

    Here's the exact description of the problem I'm facing with the motherboard that you helped replace:

    Even though the CMOS battery on my motherboard is new (I tried 3 different batteries already), the motherboard does not retain the BIOS settings. In other words, every time I turn the machine off and cut the power, when I turn it back on, all the BIOS settings are gone: the clock is reset back to 01/01/2000. Also all the fan settings, hard drive boot priorities, and every other setting in the BIOS would be reset to default and I'm prompted with the message saying "Please enter setup to recover BIOS settings".

    I've tried upgrading the BIOS to no avail. The BIOS settings get cleared every single time

    If I can provide any further information, please let me know.

    Sorry for the delay:

    The clear CMOS is indicated on the motherboard:

    Adrian,

    I think you misunderstood my problem. In short, the motherboard's BIOS keeps clearing itself every time I shut it down.
    In other words, it does not hold the BIOS settings, even though the jumper you showed is not shorted and the battery is fine. The clock goes back to 01/01/2000 on every boot

    Hope my problem is more clear now.

    Thanks again

    Sorry for the delay can you check if your CMOS battery is clamped down by the pins, if not try making sure there enough pressure applied by the pins to the battery.

    Adrian,

    Thanks for your response.

    As I mentioned twice in the previous posts, I replaced the CMOS battery with 3 different batteries. I had also inspected the pins of the battery holder. It visually looks fine.

    The first time I noticed this issue, I tried putting pressure. No luck I'm fairly certain there is something wrong with the board.

    Have you tried using USB flashback to Flash Your BIOS to either the newest one or backwards if you have the newest one.
