If you changed the CMOS battery you in effect reset it. On boot up, go into the BIOS setup and check all settings. Even if you don't change any of the BIOS settings, save them as if you did and it will reboot. Should be OK then.

Change bios language

Its possible that the BIOS can be in a different language. If that is the case when you buy it just go to the manufacturers website and look for motherboard and BIOS upgrades and flash the BIOS.

An alternative to that may be pulling the battery off the motherboard and putting it back to reset the BIOS to defaults. The default may be English and someone switched it to Japanese.

How do i reset the bios? I really appeciate Your help!. Adriano

To reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you cannot locate the reset jumper, just remove the BIOS battery for approx. 30 mins.
This will discharge the battery voltage in the BIOS, then insert the BIOS battery back and you can go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

BIOS is not updating, each time system boots it begins "press F2 to load default values". I have also replaced cmos battery with a new one.. Please help how to fix this.

This usually occurs due to bad cmos battery but since you have changed the battery you should check that the bios reset jumpers are in the right position not in the reset position. If they are in the reset position then they reset the bios every time you start your computer.

Hope that helps.

How to reset the bios p4 titan ga-8id533 motherboard

As the computer starts up hit the Del key, that will take you into the BIOS utility, once in the BIOS load optimized defaults, this will reset the BIOS configuration.
Failing this just remove the power cord from the back of the computer and take the motherboard battery out for 20 minutes, this will fully reset the BIOS so you will have to input the time and date.

If your computer was ok before you changed parameters in Bios then it is Bios fault:
Re inter Bios and Try to reset it to default.
If you can not get into Bios anymore  the problem is serious:
You must reflash Bios or reset Cmos ,and it could be vga or may be the wifi if you have one onboard.
see if you have a hardware store nearby and let someone fix it
if you .
It seems to be a common problem on all Asus Motherboards:
bios,vga,post etc...

Check the jumper for the bios, it may be set for clear. (not an uncommon boo - boo). Move the jumper back to default pins.
