Clearing CMOS: Power cable in or out

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi
I was googling all over trying to find an answer for the simple question: clearing CMOS using the Clear CMOS button on my MVE should be done with power cable connected(standby) or disconnected or maybe system powered on? (It is not documented in the manual, at least I didn't find it)

Thanks in advance and sorry if it's too silly question smile.gif

Always safest to pull the main power cord out, unless specifically says to have it plugged in.

Any time I've reset the CMOS, I unplug the power. smile.gif

OK. Thank you all.
I knew that when using a CLR_CMOS jumper you should unplug the power. But I wasn't sure that using a clear CMOS button is the same.
Thanks thumb.gif
