Question about HP VECTRA VLI8 P3 Motherboard (KZM6120)
OK. Found something interesting. There is a little red box with 10
switches on it. The box is an inch long and half a centemetre wide.
Each switch is labled in sequence; 1, 2, 3, etc.
There are little charts or tables or whatever on the mainboard that describe what each switch can do.
This one say's:
KEYBOARD POWER ON...SW1-3....ON
BIOS CRISIS RECOVER...SW1-2....ON

Do you want to get back to the default configuration (meaning clear the CMOS) or do you want to go to the BIOS and clear the settings?
In case your machine is booting into the bios you can then clear the bios settings back to the normal through the bios. Your access to the BIOS depends on your hardware. Most motherboards that you buy will go to the bios when you press DEL key, while some branded boards work if you press F2 (HP for instance), and CTRL+ENTER (Dell), etc. You can then select the option to clear the bios to the original setting.
However if your machine is NOT booting, you will have to try clearing the CMOS, which means removing the jumper from the usual 1-2 pins to the 2-3 pin. The placement of the CMOS jumper changes based on your board, but if you take a torch and just get a good view of your motherboard you will see it most cases (it will have CMOS printed) and is usually located near the CMOS battery. However some boards DONT have a CMOS Clear jumper but they will have the headers (the pints wont be soldered) and then you need to use a screw driver to get the result!
