I Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.

There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

Ram beep ok but no display

try reseting the bios using the jumper method. you should find a jumper near your cmos battery. turn your computer off, unplug the power cord. The jumper should be in position 12.. set it on ..23. Press power button with power cord still unplugged. Let it stay like this 1 or 2 minutes. Set the jumper back in position 12..., plug the power cord then turn your PC on. If this doesn't work, simply take out the cmos battery and stay with it like 3 minutes. Put it back in place, then turn your pc on.

How can I reset password for Bios Phoenix? the problem is that i can't run windows also

Try this, this is called "Backdoor BIOS Passwords" (manufacturers use these passwords for testing and maintenance.)

Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.


Try removing your CMOS Battery. (Note that all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.)
Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system.


Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Power on your machine

Clear BIOS pwd micron gx3 notebook

Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

Or take out the coin battery and replace it after 10 seconds.

Note, all bios settings will be set to default. So be aware of some possible issues you may need to correct in bios after the reset.

There are jumpers on the motherboard,
check all jumpers are set correctly, as from the user manual, this could be a problem.

check all your front lights are wired properly
power button, reset switch, must be correct too.
double/treble check them before building it.

No signal to the monitor

Its actually a configuration problem

1.) ensure that the clock speed jumper is set propperly according to your processor
2.) ensure the the cmos jumper is set correctly
3.) check that all jumper settings are correct accorind to your hardware as described by the manual
4.) make certin that all the power cable / s is in propperly, some boards require the main power cable plus the extra 4 pin yellow x 2 black x 2 to poer the processor,, there should be a place to plug it in on the board itself

if that fails then
1.) unplug the system
2.) remove the cmos battery and the rams
3.) press and hold the power button for 10 seconds then release
4.) replace the memory followed by the cmos battery

if that fails
check that your processor is working..

Can not power-on

If you Motherboard was working initialy then there should be no problems once you replace the jumper to the correct (normal) cmos setting, ensure that this is done correctly because this could be you problem. if the jumper is in the correct position and all you other hard ware is functioning correctly and still your motherboard won't power up then check that you memory module(s) are installed correctly as well as that they and the processor chip are all functioning correctly. if you have checked all these and you still have a problem then you will have you replace your motherboard as it could be burnt or damaged.
