I replaced mine some time ago and cannot recall if there was an easier way, but I ended up taking it apart to almost every piece. Even the keyboard, hard drive etc. I thought I would never get it together. A ridiculous system. Cutting a hole would have been a whole lot easier, but it is possible to do without.

Where is bios reset


The above applies mainly to desktop machines...were you inquiring about a laptop? It will have a clock battery as well, but the "yank the battery" trick won't work on mobile hardware. It is still possible to do, just might want an experienced hand to assist, as it involves cracking into the laptop. Most laptop pc's have two tiny metal contacts on the board, usually situated near the RAM expansion slot. A flathead (non magnetic, of course) screwdriver is is usually sufficient to bridge the gap between the two metal points, effictively "shorting" BIOS's connection to the power source. That will cause the BIOS to reset back to factory defaults, restoring default or "failsafe" settings. On many machines this is the only way to remove a startup or BIOS administrative password. PLEASE SEEK ASSISTANCE with this, as it is incredibly easy to seriously damage your hardware while trying to crack into the case. You can, if needed find disassembly instructions for your make/model on the OEM manufacturer's support page... which should help if you absolutely have to do this yourself.
Good luck!

Replace cmos battery and case openning


Asus motherboards usually use a lithium CR2032 battery for CMOS. Also, on the top of the old CMOS battery you took out there should be the exact battery type engraved on the surface.

Batteries Plus in Wichita, KS has a good online store for purchasing your replacement battery.

My hp desktop L1506 is locked and I forgot my password... Can I fix this


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


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.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

Motherboard no display problem. i clean my motherboard, and tried by changing CMOS battery also. but there is still NO DISLPLAY. please help me..


I would guess that your video adapter (possibly part of the motherboard) is not functioning. You can add an adapter in one of the available slots if you wish to keep that motherboard.
This is the most likely solution.
One thing you need to try before buying a new motherboard is to disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and keyboard. Now start it and see if you get a display. If not, your motherboard is probably bad.

Hello, Is it possible to reset the BIOS without removing the battery? The battery is on the other side of the motherboard.


If you have attempted to change something in your BIOS so you cannot alter or change any settings because the computer won't boot up properly, unless you have a CMOS reset button on your motherboard the only other way if you can't get into BIOS is to remove the CMOS battery, the CMOS battery is never on the otherside of the motherboard because all the connectors are always on one side of a motherboard

the CMOS battery is a silver flat battery, much like a thing watch battery, remove this battery for 15 seconds so there is no residual power left in the motherboard and then reinsert and reboot your computer

if you can get into BIOS there should be a restore to factory defaults settings in there somewhere.

My date has to be reset every time I turn on my computer. How do I ensure the date and time is memorised thereby avoiding resetting. Thank you.


most of the cases the main reason behind the date time reset problem occurs due to weak CMOS battery on the motherboard. So, you just need to change your CMOS battery on your motherboard to resolve this problem.

Unable to restart computer


The little green light is telling you that there is power to the Motherboard (MB) I would reset the CMOS on the Motherboard...boot into the BIOS to check that the hard drive is seen by the PC.and go from there...
Here is a link to the Asus Manual which shows you how to Clear the CLRTC..(CMOS) Look for section 4.3 on Jumpers.Clearing the memory built into the MB just sets it back to the defaults so dont worry about hurting anything while you perform this task...I can also tell you that When you clear this that there is no bells or whistles clashing cymbals or otherwise signal that tells you you have accomplished the task...you have to have faith that its done...Simply move the plastic jumper to the prescribed location and count to three then move it back to its original location...Secondly these parts are small and the writing on the MB is smaller so sometimes a magnifying glass is essential...Let me know how it works for you..

Asus also has the Recover Pro utility which is an always available recovery tool. It stores user data, applications and the operating system in the host-protected area of the hard drive. Users can easily recover system to their original factory conditions or to a more recent state without restore CDs. No need to worry about losing data due to virus attacks.

Where is the expansion slot for the RAM for ASUS Notebook A2400H?


The manual is incorrect. Memory is under keyboard. There is a small hole to the left of the right speaker. insert a paperclip vertically into the hole and apply a slight amount of pressure at the same time sliding the plastic section to the left. It should be obvious at this stage. then fold back keyboard. 2 memory slots are located under the plate near the middle of the unit. Specs say max of 2 x 512MB modules. they are PC2100 DDR266 200 pin SODIMM. If there is someone else reading this maybe they can tell me what the slot is for under the smaller plate to the right of the memory compartment.

Cheers.

Cannot boot or enter setup. ASUS A7V600-X


Hi,

I'm managed to fix this myself.

The system would hang at power-up, simply displaying the ASUS screen, and
I could not get into the BIOS setup at all with the usual pressing of the <DEL> key. I was completely stuck. Did this mean I needed a new motherboard?

I hoped not, so I downloaded the userguide for my particular motherboard from the ASUS US website, from another machine. Browsed through it and found where the jumpers were located on the motherboard to clear the RTC (Real Time Clock) and system settings on the CMOS chip. This meant: removing the battery on the motherboard; moving the jumpers to clear the CMOS settings; waiting a few seconds; moving the jumpers back; reconnecting the battery; rebooting. And hey presto! I could get back into the BIOS set up, where I then had to set the correct date and time, and the processor speed once more. And then a final reboot, letting it go all the way to load the OS in full.

I'm back...
