Question about ASUS P4B533-VM Motherboard
The Asus P4B533-VM motherboard does not have jumpers to help you clear the CMOS but has two bumps of solder that you short with the end of a small screwdriver. My problem is that I can't find those bumps. The area in which they lie should be labelled CLRTC. Can anyone help me find them by indicating a component next to which they lie. Needless to say I've thoroughly inspected the user guide and the board. - Thank you

Locate the cmos battey (looks like a watch battery) remove it for about ten minutes. the computer must be unplugged when you do that. be careful when you remove the battery to make sure you do not break the tab that holds it in.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper
If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine.
