Completely Confused

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So my motherboard is new(ish) put mu computer togeather between 2/11 and 4/11..... It tends to work great for what I use it for, with the exception that whenever I turn off power to motherboard to install a new hdd or blast compressed air through HSF's I am directed to bios to reset my settings, or load defaults (everytime, without fail)

could it be a bad battery for cmos?

A bad CMOS battery is exactly what it sounds like.
