    Hi OCAU

    I built an i7 PC and after getting it stable, I started playing around with overclocking and memory settings. I enabled XMP and rebooted and it failed to POST. I held the power button down for 10 seconds and then it booted into the second BIOS and everything is now okay.

    The problem is, when I turn my PC off or have a power outage, the PC doesn't turtn back on until I hold the power button for 10 seconds.

    My guess is the the config on the primary BIOS has the broken config still. How do I clear the BIOS settings for the 'primary' BIOS?


    Cheers!!

    Intel Core i7 6700K Quad Core LGA 1151 4GHz Unlocked

    there are jumper switches on the mainboard which you need to bridge to clear the CMOS.

    reset to defaults and then bios update? then set XMP again.
