Motherboard BIOS I've tried to clear the cmos, but i don't know for how long, guess i'm a rela dummie in this. My motherboard still doesn't beep when i plug it and from what happened when the power supply shorted, it didn't affect the motherboard or so it seems. Does anyone have any solution for this?

Unfortunately if you can't get in the bios, no beeps and assuming the memory is compatable with the motherboard, then the bios chip is damaged and there is no way forward apart from another board.

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. 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. RTC's which require external batteries hope this helps

Problem with the Intel Desktop Board DG41BI\r\n I

setting the memory is pointless as the system will automatically find the best speed for it if its set to auto. As for the 3 beeps that is generally vga, but could be different on this motherboard , when you clear the bios do you move or short a jumper

VGC-RB42G flashig power light and won't power

I have had this problem if power is removed by disconnecting the power cord (in cases where nothing else works). To fix the problem:
1) remove the power cord from the back of the unit
2) disconnect the large power connector from the power supply to the motherboard
3) apply power to the power supply
4) reconnect the motherboard power connector
5) turn the unit on

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. 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.

Clear bios settings on m963gv motherboard

You have to shut off the power and then move the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard to the clear position for just a few seconds. Apparently the manual that shipped with m963gv may not have the right information as to the location of the CMOS driver. Try going to PCCHIPS's website and download their manual in PDF form:

http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=354&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=7&LanID=2

You'll find the CMOS jumper location on page 11 of the PDF file (or page 6 on the printed format). On Page 15 is the instruction on where to place the jumper (again, when it's printed, it's labeled page 10).
