x570 AORUS Ultra - Cannot Enter Bios

x570 AORUS Ultra - Cannot Enter Bios
« on: April 25, 2024, 11:03:21 am »
Not too long ago, the BIOS settings resorted back to their default settings, so I had to go back into the BIOS to change them back.

When I checked again recently, the same thing had happened, so I was starting to think my CMOS battery had died. I tried to go into the BIOS again to change the settings, but each time I do so now I just get the Q-Flash screen.

It is still showing the correct bios version, but I am just unable to get into BIOS settings on startup. Would simply changing my CMOS battery resolve this issue?

How to test the battery is pull the power out and let it sit for about 2 or 3 mins. Then plug it back in and see if the boots OK. If a screen doesn't come up telling you the Bios has change then the battery should be OK. All the battery does is holds the settings in your Cmos. One other way to test the battery is with a multimeter. The battery should be around 3.3 volts. You would have to pull the battery out to do that.

Do you have this on fast boot. Some motherboard when in that state might have problem getting back into the Bios. What you can try is pull the battery out let if sit for few mins. Put the battery back in and boot it.

Then you should get the screen that the Bios has change. Then go into the Bios and the first thing is set it to default setting. Then reboot and then go back set date, time & memory settings that is about it. If running windows 11 you have make couple of other settings.

Today's Bios you really shouldn't have to do to much to set them up. I have been doing this for over 40yrs. Me I really don't care how fast it boots as long as boots to windows. I don't use fast boot.
