The proper Clear CMOS recovery from a "no boot" condition. Not to be confused with a Normal CMOS Clear.
Make sure your sig is up to date with all of the required information. This will assist the forum members with your issue.
You can not use a USB keyboard for this procedure. You must use a PS2 keyboard.
You will need your manual to find the jumpers that must be changed.
If you skip or miss any step you must start again since the results will not be valid.
Make sure that all 4 power connectors are plugged into the board(3 on the Expert)
# 24pin ATX connector.
# 4pin P4 or 8pin EPS +12v connector, usually near the ATX connector.
# Floppy power connector, under the CPU socket.
# Hard drive power connector, on top the chipset fan.(not used on the Expert)
Remove power from the rig by pulling the plug or switching the PSU off.
Move the PC Speaker jumper to the ON position.
Remove the Battery.
Move the CMOS jumper to CLEAR.
Press the Start Button on the case or motherboard to drain the capacitors.
You may leave the board in this condition for as long as it takes to clear the CMOS. If a short 30 second clear or a 15 minute clear doesn't work, try an 8 hour clear then a 24 hour clear.
Plug in a PS2 Keyboard.
Put one stick of RAM in the top orange slot marked DIMM2.(may vary on Infinity boards)
Replace the Battery.
Move the CMOS jumper to Normal.
Press and hold the Insert Key on the Keyboard.
Apply power to the rig by plugging the power in or using the switch on the PSU.
Press the Start Button to power the rig up.
When you hear the BEEP, release the Insert Key and press the Delete Key on the Keyboard.
Once you enter the BIOS set the DATE and TIME then Load Optimized Defaults.
Save and Exit.
Enter the BIOS again and set it up the way you want for your particular rig.
NEVER load any saved CMOS settings from CMOS Reloaded once you have a new BIOS installed.
