    thanks for your help. I'll try that. Also can you tell me what a long beep means when I start up my puter and nothing happens? It's a puter that I'm fixing for a friend. I checked the Bios codes, but none listed for just one l o n g beep that repeats itself. I would be grateful if you can help with this one. later. And thanks.

You can download a manual for that motherboard from the Gigabyte site:

    I had no trouble using the "Europe" link to download and view the pdf file. It did seem to stall on the other links.

    In the Award BIOS, one long beep usually denotes a memory problem of some sort. Ensure the RAM is seated and in the correct slots. If you have some matching RAM lying around that is known to be good, try it in your machine.

Power on password


What are you looking to do with the power on password?

You can typically reset it by pulling a jumper on the motherboard. I've attached the user manual for your system below, consult it to locate this jumper:

Bios admin. lockout

Find the bios reset jumper on the motherboard and short the two pins for a few seconds with either a jumper or a small screwdriver. Do this with the main power cord disconnected. This will reset everything to the motherboard maker's default settings. Open the case and find the model number of the mo-bo. (or download and install CPU-Z, which will show all your hardware details) Then Google the model to get the manual that shows where the bios jumper is located.
An easier solution is to go back to where it was stolen from and ask the rightful owner what the password is.

Hi there.
They probably had you clear the CMOS jumper or take the motherboard battery out.
The CMOS jumper looks like this >>>>
It is the little piece of plastic next to the motherboard battery, if its there move the jumper to the other (on) position for 5 seconds.
If there is not a jumper there take the motherboard battery out for an hour making sure the power cord is removed from the back of the machine.
Please post back if you need anymore advice.

Good luck

If you have recently upgraded your motherboard and when you turn it on, there is no display. You could check the jumper setting of your motherboard.

Check this site for jumper settings. Download the manual. Go first to page 11 and find clear CMOS jumper. That will be number 17. Then go to page 24 for the correct jumper settings. Jumper should be on the pins 1 and 2. That's the default settings.

If the jumper is set already to 1 and 2. Clear the CMOS by putting the jumper on 2 and 3. It should be off when you are going to set the jumper. This is to make sure that the settings for your motherboard is set to its original settings.

If you are going to clear the CMOS settings, you will have turn the computer on after clearing it and then turn it off again. Put the jumper back to pins 1 and 2. Now make sure that computer is totally off. Uplugged the computer just to make sure when you are doing this.

To test also the motherboard if it is working, do not connect the other pheriperals such as network card, sound card, and other cards that is not buit-in. Also drives such as Hard Drive and CDROM drives.

Check for beep codes. Short beeps tells you that the Video card is not inserted properly. Long beeps tells you that the memory card is not in place correctly.

Just remove the Video card or Memory card and then place it back again.

Computer should be off as well when doing this.

if you backed up your old Bios replace it with the one you upgraded. if not download the correct Bios again and upgrade a second time,

remember that after you upgrade the bios you have to go into the bios settings and select something like "apply basic setting" or a similar statement, exit and reboot.

good luck & please rate my efforts

You can do it one of two ways:

1. Remove the plug from your computer, then look for the CMOS batter is circular between the size of quarter and a nickel. Remove this and the plug for about 30 secs then put them both back in this should clear it.

2. Most motherboard has a cmos jumper that will clear the bios settings. Check your manual for the exact jumper and setting.
