Cmos

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Iv recently run into some problems with my pc first it was random reboots and then finally i was not able to access windows or even format through CD and got the BSOD. I got a HDD DOS cd and reformatted the HDD and did a fresh install of windows i did a MEM test to see if my memory was the cause but that wasn't it.

Now i starting to get the restarts again! I am completely on stock and nothing is overclocked. When it restarts it just goes into a loops of restart and crash while loading Windows, until i remove my CMOS battery and put it back in. SO i am wondering if its the battery to blame or some thing els. Maby my Bios?

i have BIOS ver 0404

Any ideas?

Have you tried restoring your BIOS settings to default? Try clearing your CMOS memory.

1- turn off your PSU ( you don't necessarily have to unplug it, just turn it off)
2- take out the battery on your motherboard
2.5- If you have a multimeter, check the voltage of the battery, should be 3v
3- switch the CMOS reset jumper from pins 1&2 to 2&3 (consult your manual if you don't know which jumper this is)
4- go scratch yourself or get a drink (wait 15 seconds, longer doesn't hurt)
5- pop the jumper to its original position
6- replace the battery, make sure its in the right way
7- reboot and see if you're still SOL

To clear CMOS you have to remove the batter AND change the jumper. Yes, if you do reset CMOS, your overclock profiles will be deleted. It might be wise to write down those settings.
