Eugene, how are you? Not a problem, firstly have you replaced the motherboard CMOS battery? If you have the next step is to boot into the BIOS, most of the time it will mean pressing the delete key, or F8,F10, F12 and or ESC upon turning on your syst. It all depends on what kind of pc you have.

Once you are in the BIOS setup screens go through each one and just remember to save and reboot your syst. This should set you straight. ;)

    Eugene, in all fairness I went back and did the research. The company who made your motherboard has closed up shop and the mobo with chip is kind of dated, so I have picked a viable replacement motherboard + cpu if you care to check it out. Most likely the only other item to replace will be your power supply. The one you have will definitely not support the new setup. Enjoy.

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.

Hi Jopav1,

At the age of *********** board, I would recommend physically looking at the board, in particular, the large upright capacitors. If the tops are bulging, or have anything leaking out of them, send the board to a recycler, and look for an exact replacement on the used market, or replace with new. I just bought the same board you have today for $25, with AMD 1800 CPU.

At 10 years of age, the battery is probably past due for replacement too. It is a standard CR2032 3Volt battery. If you replace it quickly, you may not loose your BIOS settings.

If you have a volt meter, you can check your power supply voltages. Again, your manual will show what voltages to expect at each power connector pin. A range of +/- .05V is generally allowable on all sources.

Also try unplugging all boards and powering it up. The beep should change to a sequence of 2-1-3-1 beeps, indicating that it's not able to see the video card. If you still only get a repeated long beep, It's possible that the CPU itself may have died. These are also available very cheap at this point. The fact that you are getting a cycling beep indicates to me that the CPU is OK though.

I looked up beep patterns and did not find anything for one long repeating beep for the Phoenix BIOS on your board. There is no mention of them in the Soyo manual either.

Last resort is resetting your BIOS settings to "First Birthday", and try again. This will require you to re-set any manual settings you had set previously (probably 10 years ago). This is done by moving the jumper located between the green LED, and the battery, to the two pins nearest the LED, for a second, and then back to the position nearest the battery.

Good luck

Manual reset motherboard: Soyo SY-K7VME


Bios settings are retained by the Motherboard Battery in the CMOS. Disconnecting the battery clears CMOS and returns the settings to their original state. Typically this can be done by simply removing the CMOS battery and waiting about 15 seconds before reinserting and booting PC. Nowadays most Motherboard manufacturers supply a jumper to not only disconnect the battery but also ground the CMOS to effectively drain any residual power.

The instructions for your MB are found below. JP5 is located to the left of the battery and next to the PCI 2 slot on your MB. There is a Manual for your MB on this site and the MB layout can be found at

http://www.fixya.com/support/p281070-soyo_sy_k7vme_motherboard/manual-35533/page-5

Follow the steps below to clear the CMOS memory.

1. Clear the CMOS memory by momentarily shorting pin 2-3 on jumper JP5. Its white cap can easily identify this jumper.

2. Put the jumper back to 1-2 to allow writing of new data into the CMOS memory.

SOYO SY-7VBA133U cannot adjust CPU speed


Flashing the bios is the best idea to start with. This will upgrade to the newest bios, which normally adds more features and fixes some bugs.

There is a small chance that this motherboard just doesn't support overclocking, but the majority of them do.

Below is the link to soyo's site and downloads for your model number. There was 4 or 5 bios updates. I would get the newest one.

Sy-7vem soyo cpu upgrade


Most of the new boards will automatically detect the cpu speed. If possible set the bios to auto detect. Otherwise go to Soyo website and check the manual
