A way that I seem to know works well for setting BIOS problems back to default is to pull the CMOS battery. Wait 5 minutes or so, then put it back in and try booting.

Yes there is, on some motherboards, you must open the case and physically move a jumper over and back to clear CMOS. JMOS or CLRCMOS are some of the most common wording to look for when looking on your motherboard for the jumper I am speaking about. The quickest way to find the jumper is to look in the motherboard book that came with your motherboard unless you bought a OEM NAMEBRAND computer...which will not have a motherboard book. but one things for sure there will be the jumper somewhere on the motherboard. Now, on some motherboards such as the one I have there is a CMOS clear switch that is outside the back of the computer for easy resetting of the bios to defaults, however, most motherboards do not have this function.

ALWAYS have the system power off when performing these steps...

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

How to reset bios in gigabyte ga-8simlh


1) Unplug from power.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
This is supposed to clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

No?
Have to 'slap it around a little bit'.

Power unplugged, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED, remove the CMOS battery.
Do the press the Power On button thing, above.
Reinstall CMOS battery.
(Remember; the Positive ( + ) side ALWAYS goes UP)

Plug back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Arrrgh!

Turn the computer on, enter BIOS Setup.
AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the DELete key.

You may hear beeps. These are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that are creating them. Ignore the beeps.

The first menu you will see when you enter BIOS Setup, is the Main menu.
On the right side you will see - Load Fail-Safe Defaults
Use the Down Arrow key until Load fail-Safe Defaults is highlighted.
Press the Enter key.
(You MAY have to use the Right Arrow key, then the Down Arrow key)

Press F10 to Save.
Then use the Right or Left Arrow key, and highlight Y, or Yes.
Press the Enter key.

Your computer should restart, and Fail-Safe Defaults will be loaded.
Your computer should be back to Day 1.

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.

try resetting your bios.. reset it to system defaults.. check all connections properly.. pc to monitor..etc etc..
if you mean no error code by "no bios beeps" then it's okay..
if you mean even the regular single beep after post is not heard than chances are high that your video card has some problem.
