Default Motherboard calling goodbye

Ok so it turns out the random freezes with my computer arn't the Video card drives but my motherboard. When I poped up In the BIOS after I took the battery out of the board and poped it back on. I went to memory options and the hole screen has diffrent numbers and other stuff on it. I went to general options (Where it has your harddrive / DVD drive etc) and it showed Black font and pink lines, other options from diffrent parts of the BIOS like faded memory options in the general options (Where it has your harddrive / DVD drive etc). So now I know I have to get a new motherboard, I own a Gigabyte K8M800 Flashed to F8 and used Unlocked BIOS(Crtl + F1) to unlock memory options etc

It sounds like you have just reset ya BIOS, thats the type of thing that happens when you remove the CMOS battery
