Welcome to Motherboards.org!
If the closing page on the BIOS notes to 'press F10' to save and exit, then the process should work. Otherwise, you opt for the line of choice on the main menu page to exit, and when prompted to 'save' settings, press "Y" for yes.

BIOS settings will not be retained unless the BIOS battery is in the circuit and working. Almost all mobo types will have a jumper with three pins, and a small pointer at pin #1. Pins #1 and #2 are the 'normal' position, and pins #2 and # 3 are for clearing the CMOS memory. A lot of new mobos are shipped with the jumper in the 'clear' position. Ensure the jumper, if present, is in the 'normal' position.

If you still have problems, try a known good battery. Rarely will you get a dead BIOS battery with a new mobo, but it does happen! If you still have problems, do an RMA (Return Merchandise Agreement) with the vendor.. the board may be defective.

Yes it notes to press F10.

Right now I have got only the manual for this new mobo, it says :
Quote:
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
,,,,,,,,,,,,Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I will check that as well with motherboard.
