Motherboard issues

hi, just bought a motherboard off ebay, an xfx 680i LT

he claimed it had "boot disk" issues and would sometimes need the cmos resetting to get a responce from it but he said it was down to a faulty bios on that perticular motherboard and he didnt have the time to be messing with it.

i got the motherboard and after setting it all up and turned it on i got nothing on screen, checked everything and still nothing. i kept trying and evetually it worked and when it posted i got a cmos checksum error or something which i googled and people were just saying it ment the battery was dead.

so i replaced the battery and it still had the same problem and error, only getting something on screen maybe 1 out of 10 times. the bios also seems to have no memory, when i change the bios and then restart it (eventually) all the settings are back at the default.

so i went to xfx's website to get the latest bios update and sure enough on the support section it had a post saying all 680i owners should update their bios.

i updated it sucsessfully yet im still getting the problem when turning it on.

any ideas?

Have you entered the BIOS after resetting it and saved the settings?

yes, resetting the bios doesnt seem to do anything though.
