    Unable to change BIOS setting in windows XP

    I am facing a strange problem these days in my PC. I don’t know whether the problem is related to hardware or software but I am sharing this question in order to get the solution of my problem. Actually I am trying to make some changes in my BIOS setting but after pressing F10 and also allowing with “Y” , I am not able to change the setting.In other words, you can say that the setting remains same.What should I do to fix this issue?

    Hi,

    The BIOS or BASIC INPUT OUTPUT SYSTEM that stores the initialmost and basic informations of your system which is of enormous importance can be edited.

    Insted of pressing F10 , use SAVE and EXIT.

    If that fails too, discharge the mainboard battery power by removing from the motherboard and all the settings will be initialized to the factory settings.

    Try to change the setting again from the BIOS setup and see the result.

    Thanks.

    This does indeed sounds like a defect motherboard, but maybe there is another explanation like defect RAM or empty battery.

    You can try to test your RAM by using Memtest86, when you boot from this program, it tests your memory for errors. If errors are detected, you might need to change your RAM.

    BIOSses that forget changed mostly appear from depleted batteries. You can replace the battery on your motherboard for a new one.

    If both options do not work I suggest you return the motherboard to the place where you bought it, I think they have to accept it and make sure it is sent to Intel.
