Question about PC Chips M963GV (V3.3A) 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).
