I have a question regarding with this motherboard. For some reason every time i boot my pc it keeps asking me to go into bios and i wondered why cuz at first it was telling me i have a bad rpm fan. I thought maybe it was a minor thing. So what i did was shut down and find the fan port i used and i plugged it into a different fan port and it turns out the same error. So i moved my header plug from my Corsair self sealed cooler into the cpu fan port then tried a different fan to see which ports were bad. So it turns out the fan itself is really bad with RPM. So i decided to use a different fan i had from my older cases and they work fine. So i figured out it was a bad fan. I dunno why i moved the Corsair Cooler plug back into CPU 1 Fan it's supposed to be in the CPU fan 2.
So upon reboot it always asks me to get in bios without any error and it's annoying. Not to mention my dates and time and months are wrong when i enter the desktop i keep changing it to 2017 jan. This happens every single time when i boot into my windows desktop and it tells me i have to change the date and month and time. Just windows not bios. Making sure you don't get confused. What gives? Does this mean i need to replace the CMOS battery? Is it dying or my motherboard got a bit of short or what? Advice please..
Should i move the plug from my CPU 1 Fan back to 2nd and order a new fan? As for the battery should i get a new one or just save my profile in bios and pull the battery out and put it back and see if that fixes things after i set everything right and restart one more time? I need suggestions.. thanks.
Hope this isn't all confusing. I will be more detailed as soon i find my manual.
Update: Still does the same thing no matter what upon reboot. I have to end up in bios and leave then go to desktop and change time of date. I am so frustrated. I ran for viruses and there is NONE. Got to be something tied to my motherboard. I need help here.
Turns out i may have a bad battery and now i am peeved. I have to take the whole motherboard out and replace the armor and find the battery. Jeez why is there a design flaw in this one? Battery is covered! What is ASUS thinking?! Glad i found this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSTTR_WVtx0
Bad thing about this motherboard is the design flaw. No access to the battery to reset it. You'd have to take out the motherboard and unscrew the stuff behind the motherboard and then replace the battery. What a horrible hassle and headache to do that. I have half a mind to just leave the armor off.Edited by 78@pwnt4lif3 - 1/11/17 at 8:40am
