BIOS automatically getting reset on Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2P

Hello friends,

I have an old H61 motherboard with which I am having a little problem, my BIOS is automatically getting reset. At first it was running well until yesterday, when I tried to turn it on, it was not turning on(I mean nothing happened, even the CPU fan didn't spin) then I took out the CMOS battery and put it again and cleared the CMOS using the jumper and then it turned on, but a new problem showed up, the bios gets reset after a power cut from the wall but if I turn it off from the motherboard or restart it all setting stays. I also tried changing the CMOS battery, updated the BIOS, nothing happened. I checked all other components like the CPU, Power Supply, RAM in an another system, it's all fine.

My board is- Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2P (rev 2.1)

 

Thanks in advance.

You didn't leave the jumper in the reset position did you?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

No, I took it off

What's the shortest interval the BIOS gets reset after? If you shut down from BIOS and boot right away, does it immediately forget the settings?

It forgets everything only if I cut the power (means if I take out the plug from the wall).

I would think it's a motheboard problem then, the onboard flash doesn't seem to be getting power from the battery.

Did you try replacing the battery with a new one? Battery is possibly dead & needs to be replaced.

Yes

I too think that. But the time is not getting reset untill I pull out the battery, and if the battery is bad then the system should not also start, which is not the case here. I think I will get a digonoistic card to check the problem.
