If the issue persists we recommend checking your warranty options to replace the motherboard.
I already tried what you had suggested. It did not correct the problem. The board is being RMA'd.
The new motherboard has been installed and is running.
It appears that there is a bios save bug when saving settings and switching from Visual bios mode to classic mode. I tried and couple of changes in Visual mode and when switching to Classic mode (saving = yes) I noticed that Classic mode didn't have the same corresponding changes.
The bios level of the new motherboard is 0039.
