3 little pins on the motherboard with a jumper on them.
I cleared mine by moving the jumper to the far 2 pins.

Example, label the pins 1, 2 and 3. If the jumper is currently on 1 and 2, put it on 2 and 3. Restart the computer, it should say cmos defaults loaded.

Shut it down, put the jumper back to the original position and restart the computer.
It worked for me on my p5n-d.

Make sure you get the right 3 pins though. I believe there should be a small bit of writing on the motherboard that specifies.


Good luck

DO NOT POWER ON YOUR SYSTEM WITH THE CLEAR CMOS JUMPER SET TO CLEAR.

You could destroy your motherboard. Most manuals will even state so, and my personal experience does too. Turn off and unplug the PSU, short the jumper for 3-5 seconds, then replace back to original. Power on the system and do what you needed to do. Under NO condition should you power on the system while the jumper is in clear mode!!!!

and on most of the motherboards i've dealt with... swapping the jumper while the system is OFF and discharged will do nothing...

How can you destroy your motherboard by following the MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS!?

If using your Clear CMOS jumper in the standard method... jump, power on, power off, unjump... is dangerous why do the manufacturers INSTRUCT you to do this?!

Why in over 20 years in the industry are you the first person i've ever heard say this?!
