You can remove the battery and check it with a voltage meter. A good battery will be around 3.0V DC. A failing battery will be way below that.

A save to settings of the cold power boot should stick if present in the BIOS settings.

Confirm this by setting it and just doing a reboot and going back to the BIOS - DEL key.

A battery with low voltage or no voltage will illicit a bios boot prompt on a cold boot.

Here went looking at the Qotom site and forum. While the folks are mentioning that there is no update to the 2016 BIOS someone on the forum posted a link to an update for a specific model.

What specific model of Qotom motherboard do you have Robert?

Here is a link (from PFSense forum) for some drivers which are zipped that may include a BIOS upgrade.

When I go to dl.qotom.net I get a blocking from Firefox message "The site ahead may contain harmful programs"
