I changed some BIOS settings for CPU speed and memory, now it wont boot - how do i reset the BIOS back when I cant get to the BIOS screen? Soyo K7V Dragon motherboard


Hi:) Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in so you have no static problems. Open the computer tower and on the motherboard near the Cmos Battery there is a blue or red jumper that covers 2 of 3 pins move it to the other side of the 3 pins for 30 seconds then put it back that will reset the bios to default.

How do you get the CMOS back on the Acer Aspire M1640


If you can enter the BIOS, by pushing either F2 or the Delete key after starting up the computer and seeing the first splash screen, you can reset the BIOS to factory settings. If you cannot enter the bios, in order to reset the CMOS, you must open the tower, look for the small CMOS battery (small watch style battery) and look for a set up 3 pins near the battery. There will be a jumper on on two of the pins. If you remove the watch battery and move the jumper over to the other two pins, replace the battery. Then remove the battery again and place the jumper back in the original location and replace the battery.

This process will reset the CMOS. You must also be sure to unplug the power cord from the tower before starting this process. Be sure the watch battery is not dead or the settings will not hold. So, if you're not sure, replace the watch battery.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

My hard drive is failing on an IBM NetVista 8305. Is there a specific hard drive that needs to be put in to replace the failed one, and where would I find that drive? I've run into compatibility issues...


I've had a quick look a a photo of your motherboard and it looks like it supports both SATA and PATA IDE devices.

Have a look inside the tower, if you current HDD is connected via a fairly broad grey ribbon cable, its using a PATA IDE interface - the older fashioned one.

If its connected with a fairly narrow flat red coloured cable, then its a SATA interface.

Remember to set the jumper settings on your new drive to match those on your old one.

Hi,

I would suggest that you do a factory reset on your mobo. To do it, here are the steps you can follow.

1. make sure that computer is OFF and unplugged from the wall
2. locate the 3-pin jumper on the mobo that is near the cmos battery
3. once located, remove the cmos battery
4. then from the 3-pin jumper, if the jumper is connected to pins 1-2, switch it over to pins 2-3
5. return the cmos battery back
6. plug the computer back then turn it ON
7. you will probably get an option to reset or restore settings back to factory, it that's the case, continue with it
8. after doing so, turn the computer OFF again and unplug it
9 remove cmos battery then return the jumper to it's original position
10. put in the battery back then turn the computer on again
11. go to the bios and set it back to the setting that you have set it before
12. check and see if problem has been resolved

* I would suggest getting a new cmos battery if it's already old

Let me know if you need further assistance

If you where the CMOS battery is, there's beside it a jumper inserted in two of the 3 pins(left pin and middle pin). Remove the jumper from its original position and with it short the middle pin and right pin. This resets the CMOS ROM to its default settings minus the password. Return the jumper to its original position as before. Reboot the computer.

Flashed the bios with wrong version PC is unusable


Hi, I dont like your chances a lot. Next to the cmos battery you will find a set of jumper pins [3 pins] move the jumper from where it is set onto the next pin and leave it there for at least 10 seconds then replace it back in its orriginal position. This will reset all the orriginal bios settings. If the update flash you have done doe's not allow this to reset, get onto the ASUS web site and ask for tech help, the response may be slow but this is your only option other than another mobo.
