Clearing Cmos


Recommended Posts

While I wait for my psu to get here, It sounds like it's a good idea to clear my cmos. I was wondering what is the proper way to do it? I see the battery and i see the "Clear CMOS" jumper set up but do i just take it off? or do i put it in a different position?

Welcome to the Street

 

Normal CMOS clear just move the jumper to pins 2-3 for a few minutes then back to 1-2.

 

If you have a no boot condition here is the link to the long CMOS clear; here and follow it.

hehe, dude, you don't even have a PS and your wanting to clear the CMOS???? just be patient, LOL

 

there is a saying, if it ain't broke, don't try and fix it.......

 

although clearing the CMOS prolly won't do anything bad, why in the world would you want to do it without even knowing 'what is' with the MB, doesn't make sense.

 

just wait for the PS, build it, fire it up, then move on from there......
