I Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.


There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

How do I clear the BIOS password on a da0ma2mb6d8 motherboard?


Hi.
On almost all modern motherboards there is a jumper(it should be labeled on the motherboard).
Look on the board, and remove the jumper, and boot up without the jumper in place.

This should reset the passwords back to factory....usually means that there will be no password.

then turn power back off, and replace the jumper again, and then boot up again.
Your system should now be bios password free, and you can go into the bios and set a new one if you wish.
I hope this helps you out, and have a nice day!

"Reset you're cmos/bios jumper to


HI,
No need to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:
  • By removing the CMOS battery
  • By using the motherboard jumper
  • By using MS DOS command
  • By using software
  • By using Backdoor BIOS password
Now I'll try to explain each method one by one:
A. By Removing the CMOS Battery:
xrojer_2.jpg
Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.
If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

C. By Using MS DOS Command:
This method works only if you have access to the system when its turned on because this method requires MS DOS. Open Command Prompt from Programs menu and provide following commands one bye one:
debug
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
quit
NOTE: The first character in the above commands is "O" and not the number 0.
After providing the above commands, restart your system and it should reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password.
If you are curious to know how it works? then let me explain the above commands:
In this method we are using the Debug tool of MS DOS. The "O" character present at first in these commands, outputs the values to IO ports. The number 70 and 71 are port numbers which are used to access CMOS memory. By providing FF value we are telling CMOS that there is an invalid checksum and it resets the CMOS settings as well as BIOS password.

Somehow, the motherboard thinks that a "start-up" password is required.

If you have a desktop computer, turn the computer off, open the case, and look on the motherboard. Look for three pins (labelled 1, 2, and 3), and look for a small "jumper" that is connecting pin 1 to pin 2. Move the jumper to connect pin 2 to pin 3. Wait 5 seconds.
Move the jumper back to connect pin 1 to pin 2.
Turn the computer on -- the "BIOS-password" will have been removed.

If your board has built in sound, the jumpers would be the same no matter what case you put the board in. The wires you pulled off the case are for the LED lights and the computer speaker not the sound.

Seting all jumpers to motherboard chaintec 6via5t socket 379 intel


Gateway sold all the "support" for its older computers (manuals, software, hardware) to a company that went bankrupt in November 2008.

So, _no_ information about "older" Gateway computers is available online -- not even how to set jumpers.

Password reset


There is usually a 3 pin assembly with two of them connected with a jumper. They are labels pin 1,2 & 3.

you connect the middle pin to 1 or 3 for normal operation and the opposite to reset the bios and remove the password.

start looking for them near the motherboard battery and bios chip.

if you change the jumper on the wrong pins then it is very unlikely you will do any damage, just put it back to how it was before that.
