    Boot order changes on its own after reboot

    There is some issue with my system. I have a Gigabyte motherboard. By default the boot order is first optical drive, then comes the hard drive and then others like usb. I set that to hard drive first and then to optical drive. After every restart this boot order is messed up.

    The optical drive appears on the top side. I came to know when I forget on music cd in the DVD rom. And upon restart the bios was looking for bootable drive. I changed that and on restart things were restored back again as it was before.

    This is because your cmos battery is dried up. You have to change that. You can find this online or you can also buy that in the local market. This is cheap and by replacing that the bios settings would be saved. Just replace the battery and then try to make changes in the bios settings. This is a very minor issue. You don't have to worry much. It is not associated with any hardware fault. And it is good if you avoid keeping any disc in the optical drive to avoid damage to the head.

    Sometime even after changing the battery this kind of issue is not resolved. I had seen in old boards this issue is very buggy. The time does not work. But it can be fixed by updating the bios.

    This firmware update is available for free on the official site. You just have to run the update utility and it will add the latest firmware in your system. This is more than enough to resolve the issue.

    Even after changing the cmos battery I will once recommend you to go ahead with full bios update for more stability.
