Question My Mobo may be haunted..

Hey guys, I'm sorry if this isn't the place, or that someone has already asked and gotten an answer for my question but -

My PC keeps doing this at startup like the picture shows.

I know this page shows up when you restore the system values (Reset BIOS, right?) but the thing is I have never intentionally restore the value. It just happens on its own as and when.

I have since flash a new BIOS version, gave up on any OC attempts including my GPU and swapping out my PSU. The problem persists.

I'm running the 9600k on a MSI Z390 gaming pro carbon.

Here's hoping someone has the remedy to this issue.. View: https://imgur.com/A2NvDm8

Might be something wrong with the CMOS battery, perhaps replace it and see if it changes. My laptop does the same thing when I disconnect the battery from it, it resets the CMOS as it always needs power.

Hi there. :benetton:
Well first of all i would suggest to replace the CMOS battery and then to reset your bios manually(With the jumper method)and reprogram bios again.
It may be that you have a faulty battery or there's something(Some component) that resets your bios....Or reprogram bios and save all your settings to a file then every time it resets it will selects that save file automatically.

Hi buddy. Thank for the reply!!

I understand the CMOS battery issue but what are the chances of a hardware resetting my bios . Any insights regarding that? How can I identify them or resolve that?
