Question about Biostar Computers & Internet
Jumper settings (JCMOS1: Clear CMOS Header) done. Incompatible RAM? Any motherboard settings/ procedure I need to change/ follow?
Pg. 1-15 in your manual. Do both. Clear the cmos by switching jumper to pins 2&3. Make sure the power cord is unpluged. Use a flat head screw driver to help you lift out the battery. Wait a few seconds. Pop the battery back into it's holder & reset the cmos battery back to pins 1&2. Plug the power cord back in. Boot the Pc & press the delete key to enter the bios. If the Pc is beeping remove the memory & reseat. Try another boot up.
Award BIOS Beep Codes: Repeating (endless loop). Check for improperly seated or missing memory. If beep still continue, only place 1 dimm in slot A closest to CPU. Do not forget to unplug power cord before messing with the memory or switch the PSU to off. Wait for the green light on the board to go off.

I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel

SOURCE: jumper settings
There is no jumper settings, it is just a small bridge aside the bios Chip. you bridge the two pins and power to reset cmos.
A much easier way is removing the Cmos coin shaped battery from motherboar for few seconds, and put it back, this will reset Cmos the same .

If you can't find the jumper, just remove the CMOS battery wait for 1/2 + hour and the re-insert the battery. This will reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you then need to set the Time & Date.
It may not remove the BIOS password if the laptop stores the password on an EEPROM chip.

For a Desktop computer:
When inside the computer be sure you're aware of the potential damage that can be caused by ESD.
1. On the computer motherboard locate the BIOS clear / password jumper or dipswitch and change its position. This jumper is often labeled CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, JCMOS1, CLR, CLRPWD, PASSWD, PASSWORD, PSWD or PWD as shown in the picture to the right. To change the jumper remove it from the two pins its currently on so that it covers the pin that is not covered. For example, in the picture to the right pins 1 and 2 are covered, you'd remove the jumper and put it on pins 2 and 3.
2. Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.
The location of the jumpers or dipswitches are dependent on the manufacturer of the computer and motherboard. However, below are some general ideas on where to find it. Remember that most motherboards could have dozens of different jumpers, make sure you're changing the CMOS jumper and not something else. If these general suggestions do not help refer to your motherboard / computer documentation or skip to the next step.
