      When you upgraded the BIOS

      Did you go into it and make any settings?

      At the very least you need to enter the current Date & Time and set it to run on Defaults and then as you exit the BIOS Setup save the changes.

      That should cure the problem but if it doesn’t look at the BIOS Clear Jumper and set it to Run not Clear and then reset the BIOS.

      If that’s not the problem replace the BIOS Battery it should be a CR2032 Coin Type Battery and then reset the BIOS and save the changes as you exit.

      If that doesn’t fix it return it to whom you bought it from for a Replacement.

        i just did the asus update, which updates the bios automatically (well supose to ), it downloaded the latest then asks to restart and thats it .like some days it wnt say anything but most days it pops up and resets everything back to like 2002 and at 6 am so its really annoying lol…

      You will be fine, also as stated above, your motherboard battery seems to be dead or dying, so replace it and then follow OH Smeg’s advice.

      Like Chemists/Drug Stores if you are in the States or places like Radio Shack.
