One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Hi! I just made a cpu swap on my asrock p4 combo from socket 478 - 775, the new cpu is the 570J 3.8 ghz 800 mhz fsp 1 mb chache ofcourse i looked at the manual and changed the jumper settings from...


According to the Asrock site, the CPU you chose should work in your board. You are going to have to check the jumper settings, (see the manual page 11) jumpers J1,J2,J3,J4,J5,J6,J8,J9,J10,J11,J12,J13,J18,J21 only. You indicated that you also changed J7,J14,J15,J16,J17,J19,and J20 since your statement was "i looked at the manual and changed the jumper settings from J1-J21"

Also make sure you do not have a jumper block on the CLR CMOS down near the battery. If you left a jumper on, it will not boot

Also, make sure you installed the CPU correctly and did not accidentally bend a pin on the underside. see 2.2 on page 12 Installing the 775.

How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?


Let's get to it!
There are two ways to reset your BIOS/CMOS, the first way is to locate the three pins that relate to the BIOS/CMOS clear header. If the jumper is over pins 1 and 2 it represents normal operation. Therefore to clear the BIOS/CMOS one would place the jumper over pins 2 and 3 for about 15 seconds.

Now remember that the BIOS chip is a EEPROM, this means that it will store information so long as it has suffiecient power, from a power source. In this case it is a silver button cell located on the mainboard, usually of size CR2032 3Volts. Once the jumper is placed over pins 2 and 3 for about 15 seconds, quickly place the jumper back to the normal position, which is over pins 1 and 2.

The second way to clear the BIOS/CMOS is to simply remove the BIOS/CMOS silver button cell, for about a minute and then reinstall it in the correct orientation.

Well thats it, now you will be able to boot your system on the defalts settings. Remember to enter the BIOS/CMOS by hitting the approprite key during Power On Self Test. There are many different keys, depends on your computer system. Common ones are Delete another is F12.
Enter the BIOS/CMOS to correct the date and time and to set the boot priority.

Shown below, on the left, the silver button cell of size CR2032, centre, a yellow jumper on the clear BIOS/CMOS header, on the right, the BIOS/CMOS.

Clear cmos toshiba m200


In case nothing worked to reset BIOS password (taking battery out, reseting jumper J1) you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password. You've got Kill CMOS on there, for example which wipes out CMOS. Here's the download link to the entire CD: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

I forgot the master BIOS password. IBM thinkpad 2628. There`s no start possible. Additional I get several error information: Error 271 Ceck date and time settings Error 251 System CMOS checksumbad- default...


disconnect the intal cmos battery, there may be a jumper near by, j1 or something like unconnect the jumper, whilst the cmos battery is disconnected switch on the laptop, then let the post screen load, switch off, re-connect the cmos battery and re-enable the jumper, switch on, should work fine now, if you don't see the jumper, you won't be able to reset the bios password, refer to a service manual for your laptop model for the location of j1.

Manual reset motherboard: Soyo SY-K7VME


Bios settings are retained by the Motherboard Battery in the CMOS. Disconnecting the battery clears CMOS and returns the settings to their original state. Typically this can be done by simply removing the CMOS battery and waiting about 15 seconds before reinserting and booting PC. Nowadays most Motherboard manufacturers supply a jumper to not only disconnect the battery but also ground the CMOS to effectively drain any residual power.

The instructions for your MB are found below. JP5 is located to the left of the battery and next to the PCI 2 slot on your MB. There is a Manual for your MB on this site and the MB layout can be found at

http://www.fixya.com/support/p281070-soyo_sy_k7vme_motherboard/manual-35533/page-5

Follow the steps below to clear the CMOS memory.

1. Clear the CMOS memory by momentarily shorting pin 2-3 on jumper JP5. Its white cap can easily identify this jumper.

2. Put the jumper back to 1-2 to allow writing of new data into the CMOS memory.

How to remove a bios password


You need to reset your BIOS using either a jumper (not usually well documented on laptops) or otherwise remove the CMOS battery (large watch battery looking thing) on the motherboard of the laptop for at least a few hours. If you know the model name and or number of your laptop I may be able to help you find documentation on how to do this.

Cmos


You need to press F1 and go into the BIOS to setup and detect everything. You will need to set the date, verify it detects your hard drive and memory, and enable/disable items as you need for your system.

Once it looks good, do a Save and Exit.

I changed RAM settings in BIOS, now I can't boot - need to clean CMOS


well its quite simple.you have set the wrong latency for rams.
I suggest you put a latency around 3
reset the bios and check the latencyes..you know that you must have all the rams from the computer to the same data..like all the timings or latency.
good luck..
bye bye
