    If you're unable to enter your BIOS, or if you set a system password in the BIOS but forgot it, you might be able to fix the problem by clearing the CMOS memory. On some motherboards, this requires you to turn off and unplug your PC, disconnect the CMOS battery for a few hours, replace the battery, and turn on your PC again. Other motherboards have a CMOS clear jumper pin that you must move to a temporary position and then return it to its original position. Check your motherboard's manual to see which process you'll need to follow.
    If a clear jumper pin isn't available and temporarily removing the battery doesn't work, check the motherboard manufacturer's Web site for instructions about resetting the BIOS.

    Hope it will give you an idea how...



    Enjoy!

If you have the manual for *********** board if not print it out, there should be a 3 prong with a jumper on it.. usually you turn off the computer take it off switch it to the prong that wasn't covered and the center prong let it stay there i thin 3-10 seconds then switch it back. turn on your computer and it should be reset

SOURCE: cmos settings

CMOS is a memory chip on your computer that stores BIOS information as well as system clock. It powered by a 3V backup battery. If your computer is more then 3 years old it is possible that the backup battery on your PC needs to be replaced. Replace your battery then go to BIOS setup and adjust your date and time. But it is also possible that the clock is a bit off, so first your can just try to adjust your clock without replacement of the battery. You can also do it inside the windows from control panel. Be sure you have a correct time zone.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: How to solve CMOS checksum and timer errors?

Hello,

Your backup battery is to weak to save the cmos data. Open your computer case and look for a round silver battery that looks like a quarter. Remove it and go to Radio Shack or a drug store battery section and get a replacement. The battery number is probably CR2032 but may be CR2025 or CR2016. insert the new battery and power up your computer, this time when you set the time and date the settings will stay when you turn it off.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Replaced 3v motherboard battery. When computer started, it stops and restarts continuously?


You need to enter the CMOS and reset the CMOS settings to match your PC configuration. Replacing the battery causes the CMOS to reset to defaults and theses often are not what the system needs to operate properly.

Need to reset cmos


Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key usually Delete or F2 to enter setup
this will differ depending on which bios you have


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS
if you have changed any of the BIOS settings by mistake

you can load failsafe or optimised defaults using the arrow keys you can after you make any changes in BIOS press Esc then press the F10 button save to cmos to restart

CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip powered by a CMOS battery inside computers that stores information such as the system time and date and the system hardware settings for your computer..

this will reset your cmos

hope this helps

P4P800 - VM BIOS Version 1012 to Upgrade 1018 Now CMOS can't save Date & Time


I'm sorry to have to say this but your CMOS battery connection is bad. There is basically nothing you can do other than replace the whole motherboard if it is too much of a problem.

One of my many computers is like this as well. I'm lucky in that as long as I leave that computer plugged in (it doesn't need to be turned on just plugged in), the CMOS won't reset its self. If you aren't that lucky then I would seek out a replacement motherboard.

I want to reset BOIS password for Gigabyte GA EP43 motherboard which has no jumper, i try to remove battery but the problem unsolved~


There is a CLR CMOS jumper on that MB next to the SYS FAN 2 connector by the IDE header

open = no clr
jumped= Clear CMOS

From the manual page 32

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).

I m having trouble with my SONY VAIO (VGN-FE770G). i forgot my bios password. kindly send me a solution.


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

Reset password


All mother board has a CMOS, complementary metal oxide semiconductor, battery. The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to store the system time, date and bios settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.

Turn off the computer (laptop) unplug it. Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing. Lay the cover aside then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable then remove the battery. After a few minutes plug the CMOS battery into the motherboard... Replace the screws then turn the computer (laptop) back over. The CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few minutes your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.

Can you turn off the password on the motherboard


The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box (Make sure you have your manual handy), LOCATE THE CMOS BATTERY (it is look like a silver Small coin) take out the CMOS battery from the main board ( note: Before taking out the battery make sure that you already touch metal object to remove static electricity) . Then once you take out that the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes. Same process as what you did when you take it out. Hope this help. Good Luck

P5RD1-V BOOT PROBLEM


The CMOS, which stands for complementary metal-oxide semiconductor, is the hardware component of a computer that supports the BIOS, or basic input output system. The two terms are often used interchangeably, and the two technologies work together to perform the same basic function. They maintain the low-level settings on a computer, letting the computer know, even before the computer's operating system starts, what kinds of hardware the computer has available, such as hard drives and video display adapters. A special battery located on the computer's motherboard powers the CMOS. To reset the CMOS on a Dell computer, briefly remove and then replace the battery
  1. Turn off the computer. Disconnect all cables and detach all devices, including USB devices, from the computer. Press and hold the computer's power button for 10 seconds after it has been unplugged. This grounds the system board.
  2. Step 2 Remove the computer cover. All Dell systems have a cover panel on the chassis that you can remove so that you can access the system's motherboard and internal components. For some Dell computer lines, such as OptiPlex, the computer cover is held in place by a release latch located on the back of the computer. Pull the latch to release the cover and then slide the over up and away. Other lines, such as Dimension, have large, slotted thumbscrews. Turn the screws counter-clockwise until they disengage from the chassis, the slide the cover off the computer. Dell computers often ship with the computer's user guide in CD form or with the guide pre-loaded on the system's hard drive. You can locate the instructions for removing the cover from your particular system in the user guide.
  3. Step 3 Locate the CMOS battery on the system's motherboard. CMOS batteries range in size from size and thickness from about the size of a nickel to about the size of a quarter. The CMOS battery will generally be labeled CMOS on the motherboard and will be the only battery openly exposed on the motherboard.
  4. Step 4 Remove the CMOS battery by prying it gently up out of its socket. The sockets are specifically designed to allow the battery to be replaced.
  5. Step 5 Wait 30 seconds, and then replace the battery in its socket. This will reset the CMOS. Replace the computer cover to complete the process.
