No need to reset your BIOS to enter BIOS editing mode.
You'll need a keyboard that plugs directly into the keyboard port, not a USB keyboard. The USB keyboard does not function until later in the boot process and therefore doesn't send the DEL keypress signals when needed at initial boot-up.
Using a direct-plug keyboard, keep tapping the DEL key while your computer is booting up and it should catch the keypress at the appropriate time and enter BIOS editing mode. This way you don't have to get a single keystroke timed precisely to open the BIOS editor. If the computer starts beeping at you, don't worry about that. It's just telling you that you've filled up the keyboard buffer with DEL keypresses which is the intent.
Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.

CMOS error


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

Diagnosis: The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent hardware or software change


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.

If you don't know the settings you should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time

Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date.

Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.

Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps you

Hi,

Go to your bios again set it to default and then restart it.

If nothing happens you need to use your operating system disc to fix that.

Set your first boot sequence to CD first.

Hpe that helps you out!

Vt82c693a motherboard cant show ide hdd in award gui bios check


There may be a need to check the Jumper settings on the IDE drive, I would make sure the jumper is in the master setting and also to try to keep the cd rom connected also when you boot it up again.

Problem on start up


there should be a cmos reset jumper on the motherboard somewhere close to the bios chip. Given you didn't mention the actual model and brand of mobo i cannot be certain. Also you can remove the little watch battery for a few minutes and it too should reset the bios.
