Two options:
Take the side panel off,then :
You will have to locate the 'JBAT1' terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2, to reset bios.
Or Go into BIOS and set it to defaults:

For solving the problem do the following:
1. Switch on the system
2. Press and hold the Del or F2 key to enter into BIOS
3. Select the default load settings
4. Save it by pressing the F10
5. Restart the system
6. Select the safe mode by pressing the F5
7. Select the restore point on the date which the settings had been changed.
8. Save to the point
9. Restart the system by normal mode
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I want to change language of my ibm netvista desktop

The IBM Netvista should have options to change the language settings built in if you read the manual but generally, if you follow these instructions it usually works.

Go to the BIOS utility and change the language:

To run the Setup Utility program, use the following procedure.

1. Shut down the computer and wait for all lights go off.
2. Start the computer.
3. When the Setup Utility prompt appears on the screen during start-up, press F1. A Setup Utility menu will appear.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5. When finished, select System Summary to verify that any configuration changes have been accepted.

Hi im Gavindu, I have IBM NetVista PC. I need to format my HDD so i went up to the BIOS, but the BIOS Language is Different, Not English please chang my bios language

You are going to have to flash it again the BIOS in your language. Go to the support and downloads section also check and make sure there is not a setting for languages in the BIOS hard to do this if you cannot read it that is just plain a hassle I can relate with you on this one for sure. You can go in here to get the flash software download. make sure it is the right model. Click Here
