I do not change BIOS very often.  Only when I need to change the boot order, depending on what device I have with me to boot from if I need to.

 

Recently, I needed to do so.  On boot, I choose to enter BIOS.  Before I can do anything, the computer powers off.  Sometimes after a few seconds....sometimes more, but never enough to make a change and save.  It has never done this before.

 

I'm not sure what information is needed.  BIOS brand, computer brand...I'll post what you need to know to assist me with this issue.

 

Thanks.

Last week, I tried BIOS several times over a couple days and it did as described above.

 

I remembered today that the only thing I changed recently, was my display adapter.  I was going to try changing it back, but first I wanted to test it one more time and then try it right after switching it (I have dual display adapters).  However, when I tried BIOS without doing anything, it now, so far, has been working and not shutting down, so that wasn't it.  

 

(I hate intermittent unexplainables).
