    Hi

    i have a situation

    bios doesn't want to keep settings

    remove the battery with a new battery
    reset the bios via hardware (motherboard)
    reset the bios via software with uniflash

    when i shut down my pc , and i turn on after for example 1 hour , the bios settings are gone

    i'm worried about a bios virus
    what can i do?
    outside restore an image or delete all the partition

    i did a full scan with eset and system explorer(i guess it uses hash )

    thanks

    It sounds like the BIOS chip on your Motherboard, if indeed it cannot keep any settings, is faulty.

    I would email the Motherboard manufacturer about the situation (i.e. describing the symptoms and specifying the Motherboard Model and BIOS version) and ask for a recommendation to fix the problem. Perhaps only a new BIOS chip can cure the problem.
