First switch off at wall and remove power leads. The push on button to discharge capacitors on board.

 The jumper will be located near the bios battery and chip usually at the bottom right of motherboard. Move the jumper to the clear position and leave for a few mins. Then put back into normal postition and start pc up.

If that fails to clear it then repeat but remove the battery from the motherboard too and wait longer.

Hope that sorts it for you?

How can i reset the cmos in my ms200 all in one computer?? it shows that my hasrd drive is not working, and it is really working in other computer


Hi,

To reset the CMOS the easiest way is, remove the motherboard battery for ten minute then install it again. It will clear the CMOS. Then reset the CMOS/BIOS setup, date/ time etc. Another way to clear CMOS is, reset the CMOS Jumper in motherboard.

To detect your hard drive you can try to check by change the hard drive cables. Change the port in motherboard. Check the BIOS setup and reset it if need.

Clearing cmos password or cmos clear jumpoer location.... where can i find?


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using Software:
I have found that using Dogber1's Dell Password generator is a great solution to this problem. It is free and takes approximately 10 seconds to download from his site.

B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

Good luck

How to clear cmos in asus a7n266 mb


I had similar mobo and this is what the Asus technician told me. Take out the round battery in your motherboard and flip it around and put it back into the battery slot.(it sounds weird but that is what he said) Hold it there for 20seconds and then put back in the right way it was.

Your cmos should be cleared now. Make sure your pc is switched off when doing this.

Soltek sl-k8trpro939, error message BIOS not Loaded,


To clear cmos you'll need to remove the cmos battery from the motherboard for about 5-10 seconds then replace. You need your motherboard disk in order to load the bios. If you do not have this disk then you will need to go to the board manufacturer's website & download the bios. Follow the directions they have at the site to make a bootable disk & then boot from this disk. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Hi

Check ASROCK P4i45GV R5.0 User Manual Page 17 - http://download.asrock.com/manual/P4i45GV%20R5.0.pdf

Note: Check Page 11 for the CLRCMOS0 location on the motherboard. From the picture CLRCMOS0 is number 18. You can locate CLRCMOS0 just below the CMOS Cell Battery.

Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord, then use a jumper cap to short the pins on CLRCMOS0 for 3 seconds. Please remember to remove the jumper cap after clearing the CMOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down before you do the clear-CMOS action.

Regards
Mike
