maybe something is bad on your mobo. If removing the battery won't fix it, try RMA.

return it to the store where you bought it. If you haven't damaged it or modded it, they will accept it and give you a new one

oooh, that could be the problem. Someone sold a faulty mobo. Is there a return policy for it?

Look into your Mobo's manual, they say how to remove the bios protection ..

Good luck.
PS: happens to the best of us... or maybe not lol

Don't expect a reply from Abit in less than 2 weeks. Their technical support is one of the worst in the business. It sounds to me like either your Multiplier or the FSB is set wrong. For your CPU, the Multiplier should be 12.5 and the FSB should be set to 166. Your mobo is currently set to a 100MHZ FSB. Change the setting and you will be cool. Your BIOS is probably flash protected, but there should be a setting under the "Onboard Device" menu. The menu might be slightly different, but you get the idea. If you can not get your BIOS settings to save, make sure that your CMOS battery isn't dead and that the jumper is not in the wrong position. Good Luck!

I've got an AI7 and there wasn't anything in the manual that I came across dealing with BIOS protection except the password option and it only says it is the option to turn it on or off.

Although unlikely, could that board have come out of a name brand PC? If so it may be tweaked and can't be changed...just grasping at straws.

Did you by chance Enable the boot virus protection and/or or password protect the CMOS?

your cant flash the motherboard because although you board is jumperless there is a jumper on the board to protect your bios from being flashed.

you have to move the jumper to the other 2 pins to be able to flash the bios

if you bought from ebay and did not get the manual go to abit site and download the manual for your board and read about bios flashing .. sould show you where the jumper is on the board

Rep me if this help you out
