That is what you are supposed to do move jumper 30 seconds and replace back to original
your BIOS should be set to default check that you have correct ram inserted into M/board

Password hack

While removing the onboard battery and disconnecting all power for 5 minutes may clear the bios, some passwords are written into NvRam (non volitile Ram). This may require you to move some jumpers. Try this.
It may be necessary, on occasion, to clear the CMOS settings. When the CMOS is cleared, all information stored in the CMOS is replaced by default data, which means that all of the configuration information, such as hard drive types and I/O port setup, is cleared, including the password. Use the following procedure to clear CMOS:
  1. Power down the computer.
  2. Remove the left cover of the computer.
  3. Wearing an anti-static wristband grounded to the chassis, remove the jumper from pins 1 - 2 of the Clear CMOS jumper block (JP15) and install it on pins 2 - 3.
  4. Remove the jumper from pins 2 - 3 of the Clear CMOS jumper block (JP15) and install it on pins 1 - 2. (NOTE: Some earlier systems will power up as soon as the jumper is removed from pins 1-2. Later versions of the BIOS change this, 6.00.10 or later.)
  5. Reinstall the cover and power up the computer.
  6. Run the BIOS Setup program to reconfigure the system.

No Nvram Found

NVRAM should be your BIOS, if that's not found you've got something wrong with your motherboard. I don't think it's a dead CMOS battery but you could try changing it, dead CMOS batteries usually say bad checksum.

edit: try removing any hardware you don't need for the computer to boot then if it works, add them back one by one __________________

What does the bttery control? Can I remove it for 5 seconds,then replace it and solve the ITHR checkpoint problem ?

if you are referring to the round battery on the motherboard, it controls the cmos settings remove this and your PC will not boot. yet clearing your cmos may help. look for the lil jumpers usually located near that battery and change them to reset, power on let boot then power down. then place them in the original slot.

Hi, This message "Checking NVRam" is part of the BIOS/CMOS POST even before Windows loads up. Offhand two things you can try: 1. Do a CMOS reset by temporarily moving the jumper near the battery to the opposite pair or by removing the Lithium battery for a couple of minutes or as prescribed by your motherboard's user manual; 2. If #1 is a no go, perhaps you should consider flashing your BIOS. If neither works out, it is possible that you have a hardware/motherboard problem and would require replacement. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with your motherboard brand/model, how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
