Re: looking for manual
Hi, normally cmos/bios reset is a jumper very near the memory battery. The manual for that mother board is available at (http://220.127.116.11/support/Syntax/Motherboard/SV266AD/manual/SV266AD%20(3.1).doc) However it does not readily open in MS Word. Something is wrong with the file and you may want to use docrepait to fix the file and view the content.
If you're still having difficulty, removing the flat battery for a couple of minutes (with the PC power off) would also reset the cmos/bios.
Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up.

On the motherboard should be marked what goes where. I do not suggest you doing this. Experts do this without manual because they know what they are doing, but I understood that you are a rookie. But if you decide to do this by yourself, here's how:
location of the jumpers or dipswitches may vary; however, here are some locations of the jumpers / dipswitches.
On the edge of the motherboard - Most jumpers
are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility,
verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.
By the CMOS battery - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual CMOS battery.
By the processor - Some manufactures will
place the jumpers by the processor of the computer. However, note that
in some cases these jumpers will be to change the processor and not the
Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer
the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the
keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the
Other visible location - While it is
possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible
location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the
jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.
Jumpers may also be found underneath or allongside the memory modules.
I hope this helps but suggest that the manufacturers web site or your instruction manual, may have the answer.
