Question about PC Desktops
Remove the power cord from your Computer
On your motherboard, Just below the PCIe X1 slot (The shortest one on the board) you will find a silver disc (Watch style battery)
Remove this and set aside.
On the lower left of your board there is a series of four SATA connectors, just above #1 connector is your Front panel wire header. Just above that there should be a 3 pin connector with a jumper block on the top and middle pins. Remove this block and set aside.
Now for the hardest part. We need to wait for an hour.
OK now that the hours up replace the battery, Replace the power cord. and boot up the PC. Do you get into the BIOS?
If so then power off the system, unplug the power cord and replace the CMOS jumper on pins 1 & 2 on the 3 pin connector.
If resetting the CMOS of the BIOS in this manner does not get you back up, then I'm sorry to tell you there is no simple fix. The board will need to be serviced by an authorized repair facility that has an EPROM recorder. You can check with Intel customer support for details of the nearest authorized repair facility.
