BIOS not saving setting in cmos?? biostar p4m800-m4 celeron 335

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well finaly got my new board and CPU up and running, Ive been able to run the OC utility that came with the board(got to a top of 3334mhz stable) but for some reason none of my settings in bios are showing up in windows. What gives? I can overclock the system via the software program but when I adjust values in bios and then save them, they do not appear in cpu-z or any other monitor. I uninstalled the utility thinking it was overwriting the bios settings but still nothing. Ive adjusted FSB locked the PCI and what nots and nothing is showing up in windows. Would this be because the features are there on the board but dont save in cmos liek they should or is there a bigger picture here? I dont quite understand, if you save in bios it should run those setting in windows correct? I mean the boot options work. If these options are there why do they not work? Any help would be great, if I cant get the bios to save the settings Im gonna scrap this board and buy an asus.

Just be sure to hit F10 and save your settings. Assuming they are stable settings, Windows should boot with those settings. Are you having other issues such as the clock resetting when you power down fully? If so, it's possible you have a bum battery on your mobo.

Ive done this probably a dozen times makeing sure I hit the F10 save button and also by hitting the (save and exit) link in bios. No problems with clock reset, or any thing like that, I can run the OC utility test the settings save them restart the computer and keep the same overclocked settings. However when I try to use the bios to overclock the system, it saves the settings to cmos(or so it says) after I hit the F10 button, the system reboots, does a quick scan of the settings shows the multiplier and the selected FSB along with the current CPU clock speed then loads windows. When I run SANDRA or CPU-Z it either shows stock clocks(or in the case that I saved the utility settings it shows this) but it doesnt show any changes via the bios. I beleive the battery is fine, the only issue is getting the fricken settings from bios to windows. Im gonna dink with it for awhile longer.

No I should have went with an asus board and a lga775 socket CPU. But that is a nice OC. The board probably helped alot more then mine.

Anyways just realized that the ram speed is changing during the adjustments in bios but nothing else, I can adjust the voltage, timings and speed(100-200mhz) but I cant get the rest to change, HELP on this issue would be more or less what Im after. Thanks.....

Wait a minute, how did you change the multiplier? I didnt think you could change that in Celey D's. and might I ask how you got 190fsb out of a 133? Got a screen shot of it? Did you get that validated by cpu-z?

Wow I expected a few more post's.
But everything is working fine now, dont know what was holding me back, but after a couple memory crash's reset cmos a couple times and wouldnt you know, the bios starting over clocking without software. Only problem is, I cant go above 165 on the fsb(thats as high as the board will allow) Im gonna see if I can get it up a bit more with the OC utility.
