You should press F2 to load the default settings and then F10 to save. Then go back to the BIOS configuration and set it the way that you need/want. If that doesn't work, then contact Asus.

Hello All,
I have also tried that it doesn't work. What is really strange is that if I Power Off in the power Supply(Cold power off), When I power on it's ok. If power off in Windows the configurations are lost.
