Why would a new built computer lose BIOS settings?
Posted on 2009-04-20
I recenly built a new workstation for the company I work for and have been having some issues with it. The specs are as follows:
CPU: i7 965 EE (stock clock)
GPU: Nvidia 3700 FX
RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
MB: ASUS P6T6 Workstation Revolution
HD's: (2x) Intel SSDSA2SH032G1 2.5" 32GB SATA II Internal Solid state disk - In a RAID 0 array
PS: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
The computer has passed several burn-in tests, but seems to randomly lose it's BIOS settings (and freeze in windows), these two problems seem to happen at the same time. The last two times it has happened, the computer was bumped (not hard, just with a leg or something - pretty common for under the desk PC's). The BIOS setting are going back to default, losing the RAID setup aswell as a few other settings (C1E disabled, and some asus utility disabled) - after I reconfigure these settings, the comuter boots and runs fine- until it happens again of course.
I have checked all the connections to make sure nothing is lose....updated the BIOS...I am kind of at a loss as to where to go from here. Any idea's?
