When I enetered BIOS I went on to advanced BIOS settings and then there was an option to press F6 for fail-safe defaults. Should I press that? I cant find how to return it to defualts in the manual. Thanks.
Yes. That will reset the BIOS to default

After closing and re-opening the program wroker 1 re-appeared after having completed 41 tests and 0errors or warnings. I dont know why it was hidden before but it seems to be working correctly now.
