Keep needing to reset Cmos

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi there, first post

I've just over the last few weeks set myself up a new build, (check out components in my build). I wish to ask the wise minds of OC.net for some advice . Basically, when my pc shuts down fully, when i next go to turn it on, my memok light is on and I need to go through the whole process of resetting my cmos every time, and then take out my ram and gpu and reinstall all the components. There are no problems whatsoever when the pc is on though, it does not randomly shut down and runs smoothly. I have a feeling it is a problem with my p8p67 pro tbh.

I have checked my psu and can't seem to see any reason why that may be tripping, and there are no loose cables on my mobo so nothing is tripping that either. I have only slightly oc'd my cpu but only to 4ghz, and the problem was happening before that. I have changed nothing else in my BIOS though.

Thanks for reading, hopefully some1 can help me , and hopefully i dont hear that I need to RMA my mobo

Probably the mainboard itself.

I'd lean towards the CMOS battery being defunct, but whenever your system is plugged into the wall, it uses standby power instead of the battery.

Have you tried holding the MemOK button down until it attempts to boot?

Don't bother with buying a new battery: It's a problem with the 1155 Asus boards.

They suffer from serious cold boot issues. The new 12XX BIOS they released yesterday didn't help me at all.

Feels bad, I'm hanging in tight for a BIOS update within my 1 month return period

As stated, I probably wouldn't worry about the battery since you effectively get the same power from standby voltage.

I had the same problem on my Asus P5K. It was definitely the motherboard, swapped it out for a different board and everythings good.
