Maximus III Extreme needs clr cmos to start

Recommended Posts

Hi guys :)


been taking a break from extreme oc and computers in general, but I recently aquired an old and rare MIIIE. I bought it used (ofc), the guy said it didn't start and hung on the cpu_led. This was true, but a simple physical switch between the two bios chips made it start again. However, if I leave it be for a day or more, it needs clear cmos in order to boot, otherwise stuck on cpu_led as before. When that's done I can use it all I want, until I leave it be again.


I'm really at a loss for what to do. Cmos battery is replaced and still good.
