    Motherboard switches between BIOS itself

    My motherboard randomly switches between BIOS 1 and BIOS 2 whenever I turn the system off and on again, without me pressing the "Switch BIOS" button.

    Is there any way to prevent this?
    Thank you in advance!

    Code:
    My system:
    Motherboard model: Rampage V Extreme/U3.1
    UEFI Version: BIOS 1: 1502, BIOS 2: 1701 (BIOS 2 is my "main BIOS")
    CPU: Intel 5820k
    Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury 2x8GB
    GPU: Asus 980 Ti Strix
    SSD/HDDs/Optical drives: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
    PSU: Seasonic Platinum 760W
    CPU Cooler: Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3
    Operating system: Windows 10
    System Overclocked: no

    Turn off your system and then press the BIOS Swtich button a few times to make sure it isn't stucked.

    The BIOS key is not stuck. It clicks like all the other buttons on the motherboard do.

    The BIOS LED does not change when I press the button while my system is off. This is normal, isn't it?

    Yes. I just wanted to make sure the button wasn't stucked. Now, explain. Why do you suspect that your motherboard is cycling between the two BIOSes?

    Because the LED switches from BIOS 2 to BIOS 1 (or vice versa) and all the settings in the BIOS change (including the different version number).
