Ram Voltage Reset Itself In Bios

My system will crash if I don't set the ram at 7 volts. I had my ram set to 1.7 volts in my motherboard(which is 2 years old). This has been set for about a two weeks. Suddenly today my system crashed and kept getting segmentation faults. I checked the bios and the ram was back at 1.5 volts. All other custom bios settings were unchanged. How could of this happened? I know it was at 1.7 volts before because my system wouldn't of run for so long(two weeks) without crashing.

Have you checked to see if the CR2032 3V Lithium Cell CMOS Battery is holding a charge or have you tried replacing it?

dman777 also check to see whether the voltage settings are on 'Auto' or 'Manual' (1.7 V is rather high for RAM).
