Hello
Resetting? Have a look at your memory stick locations.There should be 4 slots,each a color.

Say blue orange and blue orange.If your using 2 sticks they both need to be in either both blue or orange slots.
If your using 3 sticks then its Blue orange and orange.Also the jumper not be in the clear position.
It needs to be in the 2and 3 position.The 1 and 2 position is to clear the c mos.2 and 3 are for normal operation.

Hi... i'm using DG31PR intel motherboard. for the past few months am getting these errors while booting... CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR CMOS BATTERY FAILURE i've replaced many new CMOS batteries.. but still not...


I would reset the CMOS. This is done by removing that CMOS battery. Also, find the jumper that says "J-21" and move it to the alternative position. The jumper is located on the motherboard. Boot up without that battery in , and choose "Reset" that should clear out the junk. Also, replace the battery. Go to www.intel.com and look for a "bios update" the DG is a value board. a huge value board and one of Intel's bummer boards. Update the firmware. Once you do that, you should be good to go.

You can RESET bios password with 2 method first pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then put it again into it's position.
Second there is jumper on motherboard it has 3 pins .It is near cmos cell on motherboard named "Clear bios" or "clear cmos" put jumper into 2-3 position then power up then again put jumper into it's original position.

Forgot password for bios setting


For this issue if you need to fix it with your self you need to follow the instruction from me. First you need to open your unit. Locate where the CMOS battery located.

The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, 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.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is.

If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

Don't reset password BIOS HP DC7100


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

Open the CPU casing locate the CMOS battery in motherboard and remove this battery, 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.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative.

This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

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. Good luck!

Check your system board(motherboard) for a CMOS reset jumper. usually located near the CMOS battery. change it over to the "reset" position. wait 5 mins boot pc. if it makes it to windows. shut down move the jumper back to the original position and try to boot.

Password


that is because the password in question that you are trying to get past is the BIOS password most likely. Verify that your computer is turned off, remove power cord from back of computer, and find the jumper near the Bios chip on the motherboard. It will usually be close to the battery ( another option, temporarily remove the battery for about 30 seconds, then replace the battery into its proper position ). Be careful when you do this as some battery sockets are a pain to work with. Anyway in nearly all cases, the Bios reset jumper is located very close to both the battery and the bios chip ( firmware ). Removing the Bios reset jumper and positioning it one pin over from the initial position will usually reset the bios and get rid of the bios password requirement. Always put the bios reset jumper back into its initial position before re-appying power to the motherboard. Be careful not to leave anything loose lying around on the motherboard or in the case, else you might fry the motherboard..
Once you have successfully managed to get past the Bios password, then you should see the computer start to boot up normally and prior to Windows boot up and in the Bios routine you can configure the computer to boot to CD first. In many more modern situations, the motherboard is already configured that way.
