I am using an old P8z68-V Pro mb and don't really want to start from scratch, but if there is a profile saved, can it be restored after cmos reset? Where are those settings stored? On the hard drive? Trying to troubleshoot a vga no post after trying a new gpu.
You can actually save and load custom profiles from the same Tools area in the BIOS if this board's BIOS allows for it. I have done it many times. I just save the profile to the same USB drive that I use for BIOS updating.
