Even with the boot default set to go to my Intel operating system, it always seems to make me choose it from the list in BIOS.  It's more of a nuisance than anything, but I'm worried this may be hardware failing and end up being a worse issue down the road.  Any thoughts?

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

Do you know how to reset the BIOS to the default setting?

It is a V3 Convoy purchased from V3 Gaming PC's.  I believe they have since shut down.   It's an overclocked PC, for some reason, resetting to Default doesn't allow me to start up past Bios at all.  I have to load one of their overclocking profiles to get it to work.

If the machine is over two years old odds are the CMOS battery has died and needs to be replaced.  Easy if it is a desktop, not so much if it is a laptop.  If it is a desktop you probably need a CR 2032 battery, if it is a desktop.

Is there a chance it's behind the graphics or sound card? Or one of the blue panels

According to this image the battery would be under the graphics card.

As far as I can tell the problem is fixed. Will know for sure after a few shut downs.

Anyone have any idea why I get "missing operating system" when I reset bios to default? May make a seperate topic about that.

I just wanted to say thanks, after 4 boots the issue seems to be fixed.  Will be coming to bleepingcomputer much more often.  I plan on pretty much rebuilding a new pc with this case.
