Whats wrong with my pc? - Page 2

post #11 of 19

Unplug the cord and flip the switch on/off until all the juice is used up in the PSU. Then remove the battery from the motherboard. Right around the battery, there should be a jumper pin with a label CLR_CMOS or similar. Unplug that from the NORMAL pins and plug it back in on the CLR/CLEAR/CLRCMOS pins. Now, switch it back to the normal pins, put the battery back in, and plug everything back up.

There's no real guide to clearing the CMOS.

Just open the PC and look really closely at the MB. Somewhere, there will be some naked pins sticking up from the MB with "CMOS" printed on the PCB nearby. They should have a jumper on them, but they might not, it depends on the MB.

There should be a total of three pins, two of which are connected with a jumper. You remove the jumper from the two pins it's already connecting [. .] . and move it to connect the middle pin and the one pin that was left unconnected . [. .]

Leave it like that for a few seconds then put it back.

@ OP you do not have onboard video on the sig rig, so your options are kind of limited.
I do not see a cmos clear area either so try pulling your round watch battery and let it sit for a few minutes UNPLUGGED from power

Clearing the CMOS resets the BIOS back to factory settings, which runs the components at stock and/or auto.
