Hello,\012
\012There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1.\012\012 On the motherboard there is\012 a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable \012from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the\012 system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif \012your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3\012 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3.\012 Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2.\012 Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). \012Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your \012reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif \012step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like \012other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will \012depending on the problem.
\012
\012Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.\012
\012Thanks.
