    Sounds good then, I'll give that a shot since the PC decided to have another moment a few hours ago.

    Setup options are saved in section of the BIOS that's backed up by the battery when the PC is turned off. It maintains the date and time too. If your date and time are all messed up when you boot up that's a clear sign the battery has failed. If the settings are lost the BIOS defaults to the fail safe defaults. That includes the boot order. When that resets, the BIOS will try each one in order until one works. The PXE failed boot message is a tip off that that has happened. If the battery is low but not completely dead, it may depend on how long the PC is off. Overnight might be OK. Leave it off a day or two and the settings get lost.

    Perfect, thanks for the tips!
    I'll replace it this week and hopefully it will stop the madness!

    Are you by chance running a utility from the manufacturer that auto updates drivers etc? Some of those will flash the BIOS from Windows? Flashing the BIOS will often reset it to defaults? It shouldn't be flashing the BIOS that often, unless its screwing up and malfunctioning? Or any driver update program really? They are all snake oil IMHO.

    Depending on where you got your "Enterprise" DVD, it could be infected with malware. It might have software on it that's doing things it shouldn't. Changing settings in the background. Hard to say. There is some nasty stuff bundled in those illegal versions. I wouldn't do any online banking or online purchases on that PC until I clean installed with reliable install media.

    I don't believe I have any programs automatically updating anything and the computer will randomly reboot when it pleases so I don't thing it's on any sort of scheduled update anywhere.

    Ok, just wanted to rule that out. Thanks.

    Alright, battery has been changed so we'll see how things go. Hopefully there's no more issues.
