Checking NVRAM..

Unknown BIOS error.

Error code=8302

Press F1 to resume

What does this mean and how do fix it? It used to turn on just fine then all of a suuden one day it started dong this.


Have you tried clearing / resetting the CMOS? This error starts occurring when the BIOS begins losing its information, which can sometimes be solved by updating / flashing the BIOS as recommended above. If that does not work, the board will have to be replaced or repaired.
