Help with BIOS error

samarlian
Level 8
So i flashed my bios on wednesday from 2101 to 3101
The problem i have is once pc is shutdown and powered off at the wall. When i turn it back on it goes to dos screen and says

Bios is updating
do not shutdown or reset the system to prevent system boot failure ... it then reboots 3-4 times saying this and then reboots saying

Please enter set up to recover bios
When raid configuration was built, ensure to set sata configuration to Raid mode.
Press F1 to run set up.

Once i have pressed F1 and entered bios then hit F10 the pc boots back into windows.

The usb stick with the R5E.CAP has been removed from the pc incase you think it was left in the rear and keeps trhying to install.
If i dont power it off at the wall the pc boots normal any ideas ???

Thanks in advance

I did a bios flash back to 3009 and then re flashed 3101 but still the same after a cold boot from the pc been powered down from the wall as per pics above

So looks like i will have to leave the motherboard on standbye all the time and not turn off at the mains.


Can any one else see if they get this problem

and why is it mentioning Raid as i have never used Raid on this board ????

Pull board from case and place on cardboard. Have cpu, cpu cooler, gpu, one stick of ram and hatddrive and see if it works to rule out short or bending of board in case. You have another psu to try? Any codes it stops on?
