Hi.
I have some problem with x299 dark. I turn on pc today and I hear 3 beep and see 4F code.

When I use bios 3 all is fine.

On bios 1 i cant do anything. I pushed CMOS button five times, didnt help.

Bios 1 doesnt work.

What can I do? :(

    I'd have to look up code 4F
     
    Seems your MB & Hardware are fine - if as you mention it all works under the second BIOS
     
    You could try flashing the BIOS that CMOS reset doesn't fix/ does not work

    Bios version? Update to latest version 1.29 if you have older version! Try to reset PSU> Unplug power cable from the rear then hold Power button of Computer for 10 sec. then reverse. To reset Bios just hold it down Bios reset Button for 5 sec. then release.

    You can unplug the system from the wall and then remove the battery from the board, hit the start button with it still unplugged

    Then put battery back in, plug it back into the wall and start it and see

    You could also boot in the BIOS position that works then switch it over to the one that does not work and reflash it with the newest BIOS version

    You would boot up in the one that works, then with the system still on move the switch over to the one that does not work and flash it.

    Don’t forget to set everything in the BIOS to stock defaults settings before you flash it
    And do a BIOS reset after the update
