Hello,
I have following dual bios motherboard GA-Z77X-UP5-TH-
https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z77X-UP5-TH-rev-10#ov

I have a strong feeling that primary/secondary bios is corrupt and get the message to restore either, once in every 2-3 months.
How can i re-check/confirm this and update the bios properly ?

FYI- Machine is running stable since last 20 days.
Should i play around with this ? or wait until the message appears again ? (which auto-updates main bios from secondary/backup bios)

Thanks.

Loss of Bios settings can point to a bad CMOS battery.
Hi Thanks for reply, replaced new CMOS battery 2 months ago, then replaced another battery last week, which seems dead again.
Getting load optimized defaults and boot screen after bios is loaded.

While typing here, machine rebooted twice:
