Clear bios settings on m963gv motherboard

Hi! I, like a dummy, set my video bios settings to disabled. Now I just get a few flashing lights when I boot. How do I reset the bios to factory defaults so I can work with it again?

Be Sure to disconnect all cables Power and otherwise from the motherboard.

Inorder to clear the bios on this motherboard you will have to locate a Jumper and short the pins to clear the bios. The CMOS Jumper or bios will have 3 pins in a row. The name of the set of Jumpers is JP3. They are Located on the Motherboard just below the IDE Cable Plugins. If you are not sure what this is, look at the back of the hard drive and follow the flat data cable to the motherboard. Just below the plugins on the board you should see the 3 jumpers labeled JP3. Pins 2 & 3 should already have a jumper on them so they are shorted in the normal mode of operation. What you need to do is move the jumper to the other side so the pins 1 & 2 are shorted, leave the jumper on for a few seconds, and then return it to the way you found it. (On 2 & 3 Pins)

Once doing so this will clear the bios. Once you re connect all cables and power up enter the main bios page and goto "Load Optimal Defaults" Then "Save Changes and Exit"
This will avoid system unstability after clearing the Bios.

You have to shut off the power and then move the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard to the clear position for just a few seconds. Apparently the manual that shipped with m963gv may not have the right information as to the location of the CMOS driver. Try going to PCCHIPS's website and download their manual in PDF form:

You'll find the CMOS jumper location on page 11 of the PDF file (or page 6 on the printed format). On Page 15 is the instruction on where to place the jumper (again, when it's printed, it's labeled page 10).

Jumper setting for video on the motherboard

Unless you are working with 1980's vintage motherboards, there are no jumpers on the motherboard for video. Most motherboards today, if they have onboard video and an expansion video slot, have a BIOS/CMOS option for which video you want to initialize first (onboard/PCI). A few may actually have an enable/disable capability, but few do anymore. It is all automatic.

How do I bypass my on board video card on my hp a6417c PC motherboard:MCP61PM-HM it died and i installed a new card but it wont let me get pass the initial bios selection screen

The old card has to be disabled in bios or some times you can do it from safe mode by uninstall. For bios settings depending on the PC it self you would have to start the pc and first screen that shows up will tell you how to access bios settings. In the settings there is an option to turn off on board video card. Hope this helps.

Most likely in these situations it is a driver problem.  First things first, make sure your BIOS is up to date.  If not, follow this link to update your BIOS:

After the update, enter your bios and make sure your onboard modem is enabled.  This could be another problem - the modem MUST be enabled in BIOS in order to work.
Additionally, there are drivers available for your specific motherboard model - go to the following site:

These are windows drivers for your motherboard - they work across nearly all windows platforms.  
If you do all of those steps, and it still doesn't work, let me know!
Good luck!

EliteGroup ECS GeForce6100SM-M video problems

You are the fourth person I have helped with this board. One would think that ECS would have this posted on their site. Please update you're bios. Click on this link:
Two user's tried 2 different settings & each worked out fine. You made the correct setting in you're bios. After flashing the bios to the latest bios file. Re-check you're settings. You may find you're setting will function. If not you will have to change the bios setting to Enable. According to ECS the bios will automatically turn off the onboard video. As I mentioned, this does & does not work. Try both settings if Disable fails to load with out the blue screen.

Good Luck!
