Hi how are you tonight.I have an A Open AX 34 with no onboard video just AGP.The BIOS crashed and I tried resetting the CMOS battery it didn"t wotrk they are saying change the jumper pin are they...


No maxboxman they are not referring to the jumper pins on the harddrive.

Hi to you also maxboxman,

The reference is to jumper pins on the motherboard. There generally would be a jumper sitting on Pins 2 and 3 probably, and needs to be set to Pins 1 and 2.

(Pins 1 and 2 are the Run mode, Pins 2 and 3 are for BIOS reset. Just a General example, and does not apply towards your motherboard

[Inside the plastic jumper is a metal shell, or flat piece of metal. This metal creates contact between two pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumper_%28computing%29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jumperblock-shunts.jpg ]

However I'm looking at a PDF motherboard manual for the AOpen AX34-U motherboard, and no jumper pins are shown on the 'motherboard map', nor are any listed. (Anywhere in the manual, to include the BIOS section)
Just details how to enter BIOS Setup, and possible BIOS updates.

BIOS for AX34-U,

http://global.aopen.com/download.aspx

Click on the blue down arrow next to - select a product.
You have to wait for the page to load, watch the green progress bar.

After the page loads click on the blue down arrow to the left of Select a model.
Scroll down to AX34-U, and click on it.
Same thing, waiting game.

When this page loads scroll down to the heading BIOS.
To the right click on the download icon above 202.0 KB

Click on 2 at the bottom, (Page 2), and the English version of the motherboard manual is listed in PDF form on Page 2.

Hi, I messed up my BIOS by trying to update it... I got an asus p4b533 and cant find how to do a CMOS reset. I read about shortening two bumps because this board obviously has no jumpers to reset CMOS....


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.


Hope this helps

Dear sir, i forget my BIOS Password model no lenova y500


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. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.

If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.

If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it.

I want to know that , for BIOS updates in GA-K8VM800M motherboard, whether it is necessary to alter the jumper settings or not. If not, then please tell me about a Gigabyte model in which it is necessary.


I don't know how old is your Gigabyte Board, but the motherboard is not an invention that was exclusively for computers. The motherboard idea was generated for the defense electronic industry. Now what they had in mind with the jumpers, is not clear to me. I know for instance that the jumpers were calibrated to change the chip voltage 0.1V per step, but probably you are right. For a given frequency and speed that a computer is designed for, there is one setting of the jumpers. Now, if somebody wanted to change the frequency up or down then it would be necessary to change the settings of the jumpers. Thank you for your consideration and choice of our service. My name is Cosntantin (arzconst is my internal nickname for Fixya.com).

HELP! I can not access "setup" (by pressing the delete key). When I press the delete key it say, "entering setup", then shuts down. I have tried barebones, 1 stick of ram in each of the 4 slots, nothing...


Have you tried clearing the bios? there's a jumper in the motherboard that let's you erase all settings done in the bios and return it to its original state. Some motherboards even include a password erase jumper for the bios. Check your motherboard manual for the location. Just place the jumper in the clear position and return it back. Some motherboards may require you to turn on the pc while in the clear position and then turn them on again in the normal position to perform a through clearing.

If this isn't working you might be dealing with a corrupted bios... data on it might have got altered by a virus or some error. So now it doesn't work as it should.

If you can't boot your PC and enter windows or browse the internet, then you must work from another computer and download a bios image from the manufacturer web page and look for an alternate method of bios update that lets you update your bios from a floppy disk or maybe from a pendrive.

If you can access windows and the only problem is that you can't access bios, then do a bios update through windows directly, downloading the new bios image from the manufacturer's webpage.

Take note some motherboards won't boot up if there's a problem with the CPU fan, to protect the CPU from burning.

About bios update


If you have never "flashed" the bios before you will need to go the Intel website where you can enter your Intel motherboard model information. That will lead you to diagrams of your motherboard that shows where any related CMOS jumpers are located and what positions they must be jumpered to accept a flash bios update. You will also be provided with the FIRMWARE file download and instructions. Pay careful attention to the instructions as flashing the BIOS chip can disable your computer if you have the wrong firmware or if the power to the computer is lost while updating.    The model number will be printed on the motherboard itself. It is an easy process if you study the instructions. ~Steve Medley

T60 after Bios Update to Ver. 2.22 no Video


I do not know if this will work
1)open case
2) check motherboard for word which will say reset bios or words to that effect nearby will be a small 2 or 3 pin connector with the 2 pin remove the jumper from 1 pin and fit over both reboot and turn off straight away refit jumper back over 1 pin and reboot see what happen it may work
with 3 pin setup jumper will already be over 2 pin remove and fit over middle and the other pin remove reboot etc
Usually a failed bios update is more often than not fatal
hope this works for you if it does post favorable rating thanks
