Have you tried contacting Dell support.They should have a better idea as to what is causing this problem.

Have you tried downloading the latest bios/firmware for your computer?You can look for your system specific updates on the Dell website.

First , you do not want to update a Dell Board with a Intel BIOS they are different Dell writes there own BIOS. you could Brick your board by running a Intel BIOS on a Dell Board .

You cannot run Intel bios on Dell motherboard.

DO NOT TRY IT THIS WILL KILL YOUR MOTHERBOARD.

 

YOU WILL HAVE TO LOOK FOR DELL UPDATES ON THE DELL WEBSITE.

Have you tried to over clock your cpu without proper cooling?

Have you made any changes in the bios settings?

Hi,

This might be a bit late. But if in future, anyone has this similar problem, hope this will help.

The motherboard stores all BIOS and Time in the motherboard, which is powered by a CMOS battery. If the battery is dead, then every time you power off, all the settings are lost. Replacing the CMOS battery would solve this problem. Check if system time is also getting reset or being messed up after a complete shut down and power off. If it is, then it is definitely a dead CMOS battery.
