Sometimes when I boot my PC, my BIOS seems to reset itself to the default values. I have encountered this problem ever since I inserted my new 133 RAMs. I also have set the DRAM to 133 and my other settings to suit my system. Whenever this problem occurs I have to set everything all over again and it happens quite frequently!!! Any help will be very much appreciated...TQ

i am using the vd133, 1st edition....

The memory itself could be bad or even the brand of memory may not work well with your system. I would return the memory for another brand and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't please make another post.

Well, I did swap the memory before but the problem still persist. Thank you for your suggestion ,Cecil. Any other suggestion will be most appreciated.

Try replacing the battery on the motherboard. This holds the bios settings.
