Properly Clearing CMOS

Recommended Posts

you most likley own a dfi b/c you can OC correct? and now your compling of voiding a warranty.....

 

No... I had one RDX200 before this one and had problems with stock clocks... mailed to DFI and they send me latest BIOS (at the moment) and advised to flash it. And yes, it was beta BIOS.

 

And I never have had any problems with RMA cause of beta-bios... so that's why it's kind of weird in my point of view.

I believe that is to prevend RMA's due to custom modified BIOS's, DFI "releases" a beta, it's called a beta because it hasn't been tested fully yet on different system setups. So it can't be guarenteed to work/fix problems on all computer setups.

 

That's what I think anyway. :)

I have been told by an Asus tech support once to take out the battery when before I rmad their board. I don't do it as a practice, doing as the earlier poster stated, just take the pin move and wait and then after a minute put it back. One thing, however, DFI could do what abit does, put a long fin at the end of the jumpers, makes it so much easier to reset the cmos because I dont hvae the smallest fingers in the world but making a fin at the end would make it so much easier to reset the cmos :)

"Therefore let’s say it again, we strongly urge our users, “If you need to clear CMOS, please use Clear CMOS jumper to do so. Do not remove the battery on motherboard for clear CMOS purpose!”

 

So what is the approved procedure to replace a dead battery?

I'd probably swap it out and probably flash the bios just to be safe. Guess I honeslty don't know the 'approved' method though.

 

Either way, I wouldn't try to load anything from 'CMOS Reloaded'.

I successfully cleared my CMOS today with the battery in place as shown at the top of this thread. 5 minutes did the trick.
