Question about ASUS P4P800-MX Motherboard
I'm forced to clear the CMOS after a shutdown to get the PC to power up. I'm clearing the CMOS by turning off the PS, removing the battery and moving the jumper to pins 2-3. After waiting about 10 seconds, the battery is re-installed and the jumper is set back to pins 1-2 and the PS is turned back on. On boot up, F2 is required to reset the BIOS; the PC will then boot correctly.
If I leave the battery out and perform a shutdown, the PC will power up without clearing the CMOS as state above, but I still have to press F2 to continue booting.
I have replaced the battery with a new one, but problem continues to occur. If I restart instead of shutdown from within Windows, there's no problem.
Any idea what's causing this to happen?
Try swapping the Ram Chips "Memory" try running it with less memory or if you have multi chips take a few out and run it
