There is no such thing. If you need to do that then copy them on a piece of paper.
But reseting the BIOS will have almost the same effect.

Will not boot to bios or beep


BIOS is a software program that controls basic functions in your computer, such as boot order, keyboard control and how your processor interacts with memory cards. If you get an "NTLDR Is Missing" error, inspect your BIOS utility to make sure your computer is booting up from the right place.

Cmos is located in BIOS
Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS
if you need to change any of the settings using the arrow keys you can load failsafe or optimised defaults

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..

hope this helps you

Forgot BIOS password for Acer Extensa 5420. need heeeeeeeeeelp


Every system must store the BIOS password information somewhere. If you are able to access the machine after it has been booted successfully, you may be able to view the BIOS password. You must know the memory address where the BIOS password is stored, and the format in which the BIOS password is stored. Or, you must have a program that knows these things.

You can write your own program to read the BIOS password from the CMOS memory on a PC by writing the address of the byte of CMOS memory that you wish to read in port 0×370, and then reading the contents of port 0×371.

!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.

CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:

  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI

Need update bios


If you want to update you bios first of all you need to check that which is your current version of bios. For that you may do these steps.
  1. Open Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information. Here you will find System Summary on the left and its contents on the right. Find the BIOS Version option and your BIOS flash version displayed.


  2. You can also scan the registry for this information. When Windows loads, it stores the main computer BIOS and video BIOS following information under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWAR\EDESCRIPTION\System registry subkey:

    SystemBiosDate
    SystemBiosVersion
    VideoBiosDate sanj2cool_0.jpg
    VideoBiosVersion

This information appears in the registry for only informational purposes and changing these values has no effect on the system.


After you got the same version of bios you can download the latest version from the specific vendor of you device and can update it by simply running as you install any software.

Changed cpu multiplier from 17 to 19 now have blank screen on foxconn a88gmx, cant reset as cannot access bios


Try clearing the CMOS --- the down side is your lose all your setting --- the up side is you should be
able to access your BIOS

Clear CMOS Jumper: CLR_CMOS1 ( Located near CMOS battery )
The motherboard uses CMOS RAM to store the basic hardware information (such as BIOS data,
date, time information, hardware password...etc.). Clear CMOS data is the fast way to go back to
factory default when the BIOS settings were mistakenly modified.
The steps to clear CMOS data are :
1. Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
2. Remove jumper cap from pins 2-3, put it onto pins 1-2 to short them.
This will clear CMOS data.
3. Return the setting to its original with pins 2-3 closed.
4. Plug in the power cord to your computer and turn it on.
5. Go to BIOS Setup to configure new system as described in next chapter.
Clear Jumper on pins 1 & 2
1 ----
2 ----
3
Normal
(Default)
1
2 ----
3 ----
CLR_CMOS1
  • Disconnect the power cable before adjusting the jumper settings.
  • Do not clear the CMOS while the system is turned on.
WARNING!
Jumper Diagram Definition Description
1-2 Set Pin 1 and Pin 2 closed
2-3 Set Pin 2 and Pin 3 closed

Cmos checksum error & keyboard not function


CMOS checksum errors
Explanation: A checksum is computed as an error-detecting code, to protect the BIOS settings stored in the CMOS memory. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, an error message is generated to tell you that the CMOS memory contents may have been corrupted and therefore some settings may be wrong. BIOSes react in different ways to encountering this sort of error. Some will warn the user and then continue on with whatever settings were in the CMOS. Others will assume that the settings that were in the CMOS were corrupted and will load default values stored in the BIOS chip "for safety reasons". The error message will indicate which your system is doing.
Diagnosis: The most common cause of checksum errors in CMOS is a battery that is losing power. Viruses can also affect CMOS settings, and motherboard problems can also affect the stored values.
Recommendation: Follow the instructions in this section to address the CMOS corruption. You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent BIOS settings backup).

What is bios?what bios is cmos


BIOS =Basic Imput Output System. CMOS is the onboard chip that stores the info for the BIOS.

CMOS chips pass information to the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) when the computer is turned on (called bootup). CMOS stores information such as boot order (the order the computer looks for information, such as A drive first, C drive second, and so on), real-time system clock, calendar settings, hardware passwords, hard drive configuration settings, and the installed memory (RAM). Essentially the CMOS chip stores data for the BIOS so that a computer can boot up properly.
