Asking about components in ECS 848P-A v 1.0

Did anyone know the part code and may be the function for :
-a mosfet with a 2 legs near the cmos batery and SouthBridge, and side by side with ELCO?
-a part with 5 legs, position is up (my english is bad) from the AGP slot and left side of the NorthBridge Chip?
-6 mosfet on the left side of the CPU socket?
I will appreciate your help...although if you are new for this thing..
my mobo has become a canibal victim to revive others' mobo, but someone forgot to write notes about the original part that taken from the place.
one more thing..
how is the sequence of a booting process?
Swich on> activate logic ic>logic ok>give power to cpu>cpu send power ok to ???>cpu try to find BIOS in the end of the memory address (where?)>linked by memory to the real bios is>execute bios>bios execute POST>test device..cpu..ram..vga..fdd..hdd...>boot ?
is that right or wrong and complete or incomplete in details???
i want to learn more...

Invalid cmos settings


Thank you for your query

The Bios can be cleared in 2 ways

1) As you have mentioned above, the battery can be taken out but it should be left out for at least 10 - 15 minutes

2) If this fails you can do a 2 pin short, please look in the motherboard manual, it will tell you where to find this component, all you need to do is to move the jumper from the 2 pins it is sitting on to anohter 2 pins behind it, leave for 2 seconds and then put it back (ensure there is NO power going to the motherboard when this is done)

Both of the above will clear BIOS

I hope this has been helpful

ECS Motherboard P4M800 LGA 775 Socket

One of these should work:

1. Reset the BIOS (remove mobo battery or short-out the two reset pins near the battery or CMOS chip)

2. Disconnect every drive from power and data; remove all add-on cards. Leave only video card and one memory module in place. Turn on.

I hope #1 worked for you.
In #2, a device may be internally shorted to ground, that's why you must disconnect the power AND data cables from them.

If by "Reboot" you mean turn-off and restart, your CMOS battery is probably bad and not able to supply enough power to the bios to retain your time settings. Replace the CMOS battery.

Many web sites require the proper date and time on the surfer's PC. For example, Microsoft Update will not allow downloads if the surfer's PC date and time are far out of syncwith the real time. Ironically, even the Update Time function on the surfer's PC will not work if it is too far out of sync.
