if you gone in and hit reset to default in the bios then save and exit and the info not holding..could be a bad cmos chip on the mb or the clip missing on the cmos battery holder....or the battery is in backwards or the battery you installed was dead. I try the easy stuff make sure the battery is in right. most mb i worked on the + side with the cr203 show up and the other side is facing down into the cmos battery slot. check that the battery is in snug and non of the clips are snapped off.
