Is there a reset jumper? This has worked every time on any machine.

Spode 29th July, 2002 02:41 AM

I didn't make that post!!!

damned AOA camp. free computers e.t.c

you acn get software to get the password. or just reset it using the reset jumper.

Do you have the manual for the board?

There should be a jumper near the CMOS battery on the mobo. To clear the CMOS, you put the jumper on the 2nd and 3rd pins momentarily and then return the jumper to its original position.

If clearing the CMOS doesn't work try some of these from several other message boards:

I don't know about an Award BIOS but most of the AMI BIOS's would reset to factory default if you continuously hold down the insert key while powering the computer up. You might want to spend some time holding various keys down while powering up. It should take you less than 101 tries ;) Unless of course it's a multi key combination. Then you're SOL.

The Handbook states to shorten jumper 13 for a while but I tried this with no success. Somewhere else it states that one should send the Board to the reseller but he is not available anymore...
Hmm.... I've been that situation before, and shorten jumper 13 solve the problem. Here is the procedure : shorten that jumper, turn on the PC for 5 secs maybe, then turn it off. Unshorten the jumper, turn on again your PC, then you have the PC without BIOS password.

More if I can find it, HTH! ;)

im using an ASUS A7V Kt133 where would it be there

Uncle Bob 29th July, 2002 04:19 AM

Here is a forum dedicated to your motherboard
I can't seem to download the manual from the ASUS site so I really can't say where the specific jumper is.

K6-III 29th July, 2002 05:17 AM

Actually, the A7V didn't have a jumper for that purpose. Instead, they chose to go with 2 metal contacts that you have to short with a paperclip...

i wish they would use jumpers... people are always so nervous about using a paperclip on their computer even when it says: "short here"..... they think a weeny .001V battery will short their system

Here is your board's manual online It takes a long time to download even with a T-1 connection, but be patient. If you don't have it, it's always a good idea to have it on hand.

Here is the info you need! Just follow the directions and you should be just fine. The legend should be self- explanatory.

Like the instructions...[list=1][*]Unplug your computer[*]Short the solder points[*]Turn ON your computer[*]Hold down <Delete>[/list=1]

I guess the motherboards are clever enough not to require power when you turn the thing on again!

It wasn't me!

As there isn't a proper jumper to clear the CMOS on your board, I advise doing this. It's time consuming and a bit of APITA, but I destroyed an Asus mainboard when I shorted the two solder nubs. To me, it's worth the extra hassle!

Boot into BIOS and set everything to Setup Default. Shut down the box.

Unplug the PS from the power strip. Then unplug the 20-Pin ATX power connector from the mainboard. Then remove the CMOS battery for 15 minutes. A little strip of duct tape makes messing with the battery a LOT easier.

Then put the battery back into its "holder." Then plug the 20-Pin ATX power connector back into the motherboard. Then plug the PS into the power strip.

The password ridiculousness is now gone. If I don't need to protect my machine from idiots, I never set BIOS passwords.
