i have a soyo p4865pe dragon 2 motherboard that suddenly out of the blue wouldn't save changes to cmos. when you save to exit the "y" is there but if you hit enter nothing happens and the computer is frozen. if you turn off power to reboot, it doesn't reflect any changes you made. by accident i discovered if i ctrl+alt+del it will exit and reboot but the changes are saved. this was what i was doing for a while. i can switch the n and the y back and forth, i can exit without saving and have no probs. only hitting enter with "y" selected to save will freeze the system. i have no clue why this started happening but nothing was changed or upgraded on the system and i don't overclock i just run a vanilla p4 3.4ghz 800fsb 2gb ddr400 ram system. i thought the board was going bad but after i changed it i started thinking it may not be a bad board but maybe a bad bois chip so i came here to people who know more than i do. i replaced the bios battery and reflashed to the latest bios before giving up and swapping out the board so i'm sure it's either a board issue or defective bios chip. i just don't know how to check this out and maybe my idea of a bad bios chip may be dumb. it was a good board and i really would like to save it if possible.
