Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 does not post without clearing CMOS

svillardi asked
Last Modified: 2018-01-01
I got an error saying that my bios settings had changed on my motherboard and that i would have to run setup.  I reset to default settings and I cannot get the box to POST without clearing the CMOS each time.  I cannot also get the machine to recognize the onboard m.2 card.  I went into the onboard devices under Advanced settings and set the pci_express settings to m.2, but it didn't help.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
