Question about PC Desktops
- do a bios update (or downgrade if needed) to see if it fixes the issue
- but probably the BIOS battery is not keeping the proper voltage anymore, and it automatically resets the BIOS (do the bios setting that u change, remain changed after unpluging/pluging the comp ?!). Try keeping the computer pluged in for a day and see if the battery charged properrly (if the set date remains )... if not ..change the battery.
- as for the self starting, there is a setting in the BIOS, that activates/dissables that ! - see u;re user manual ...

A device formed by the combination of a PMOS
(p-type-channel metal oxide semiconductor device) with an NMOS (n-type-channel metal oxide semiconductor device). Derived from complementary metal oxide semiconductor device. hope this helps
The CMSOS is only a battery to store you're bios/mainboard settings.
CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip powered by a CMOS battery inside computers that stores information such as the system time and date and the system hardware settings for your computer..
The moment that you unplug the power and remove the battery for at least 10seconds, the mainboard will reset it self into the 'default-state'.
This can also be done by selecting 'reset to default settings' in bios screen.
Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope this helps
