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.

Remove the CMOS battery in the motherboard for some time and then plug it again the bios will be reset to factory defaults with no password. CMOS battery is like a coin in the motherboard with positive sign (+) in the upper side.


In the motherboard there is a bios reset jumper, it has three metal with two of them was use by the jumpers as the default, just move the jumper place it occupying the third metal point leaving the first. wait for about 1 min then return to the original setting occupying the 1st point, turn the unit on and CMOS will be cleared off.

How to reset the bios to factory default on Asrock P4I45GV R5 Motherboard

Enter the BIOS using the key that the POST screen indicates. After entering the BIOS, you should be able to navigate to a tab that says "restore factory defaults" (or something similar). This will allow you to reset your BIOS settings to default.

VGC-RB42G flashig power light and won't power

I have had this problem if power is removed by disconnecting the power cord (in cases where nothing else works). To fix the problem:
1) remove the power cord from the back of the unit
2) disconnect the large power connector from the power supply to the motherboard
3) apply power to the power supply
4) reconnect the motherboard power connector
5) turn the unit on

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.

Forgotten the password , without it coputer wont boot

Sounds like you have set a password in the BIOS. If you have forgotten the password then you will need to reset the BIOS settings to their default. This is usually done by setting a jumper on the motherboard. You are going to need to get your motherboard's manual and find the BIOS Reset jumper switch. Once you set this jumper properly, the settings in the BIOS will be reset to their default values.
