  • GA-EP35-ds3p won't cold boot

    I haven't used this pc since I got hit by ransomeware a few years back. I cleaned all the drives and reinstalled Windows 7. I never had a cold boot problem before although I've read it is a problem with this board but after installing Windows, I can't get it to boot without going into BIOS and making sure the right drive is set to boot (it always is) and hit F10 to save and exit and it boots up. If I restart the PC it's starts right up but if I shut it off, it will not boot without going into BIOS and hitting F10. I installed a new CMOS battery since it's been sitting a while but it had no effect. I have the latest BIOS F6. I had it overclocked before so I reset the BIOS to default but it did not help.
