Re: initial configuration

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:

CLEAR CMOS...............SW1-5....ON

Re: initial configuration

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!

I want to disable the system password on my dell computer

I assume that you have the password? Restart your computer. As soon as you see the dell screen, hit the f2 key. This will take you into setup. Look through the different menus and you will find the password options somewhere. You should be able to disable it there.

Sir my problem is that my SATA hard disk not detected by system. Also when i detect the SATA/IDE hard disk system hang, and nothing happen. But that time keyboard not hang. My SATA ports work...

Each PATA device (disk-drive or CD/DVD) drive has some small jumpers.

For the two devices connected via the one ribbon-cable,
set the jumpers on one device to the MA(ster) setting,
and set the other device to the SL(ave) setting.

Or, set both devices on the one cable to the C(able)S(elect) setting.

When properly set, both devices will be quickly and properly detected.

Be sure that your BIOS SETUP has been configured to allow SATA devices,
i.e., not set to "disabled" mode.

Hello, I have updated BIOS of Intel 845 GVSR board. But after the successful update USB is not displayed in BIOS hence no USB device is getting recognized. Please help.

Had exactly the same problem. This process fixed it for me:

  1. Shut down the computer safely and remove the chassis cover.
  2. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper to the Maintenance position. (Refer to the Quick Reference Guide or Product Guide for the location of this jumper.)
  3. Power on the computer and enter BIOS Setup (press F2 during boot).
  4. Go to the Advanced > USB Configuration menu.
  5. Enable the USB Function.
  6. Go to the Exit menu and select Save Custom Defaults.
  7. Save and exit the BIOS setup.
  8. Turn off the computer.
  9. Move the BIOS Configuration jumper back to the normal mode position.
  10. Power on the computer and enter the BIOS Setup again to verify that the Advanced > USB Configuration menu is now back to normal.

Try changing the settings on the BIOS, like drive configuration and boot sequence/priority. also check the jumper on the OS HDD and make sure that it is on Master.

CLR_CMOS (Clearing CMOS Jumper) (next to the battery)

Use this jumper to clear the CMOS values (e.g. date information and BIOS configurations) and
reset the CMOS values to factory defaults. To clear the CMOS values, place a jumper cap on the
two pins to temporarily short the two pins or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the two
pins for a few seconds.
• Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before
clearing the CMOS values.
• After clearing the CMOS values and before turning on your computer, be sure to remove
the jumper cap from the jumper. Failure to do so may cause damage to the motherboard.
• After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized
Defaults) or manually configure the BIOS settings (refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," for
BIOS configurations).

The reset jumper for an ECS P965T-A (V1.0) is J1 color red tag as "Clear CMOS Jumper" located near the Lithium memory battery. To reset, simply move the jumper temporarily to the opposite end/pair and revert back to original position soon as finished. pls refer to below image.
Alternately, removing the memory battery for a couple of minutes also reset the CMOS/BIOS configurations.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
