Here's what my 8KNXP manual says:
If you want to erase CMOS...
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the battery, wait for 30 second.
3. Re-install the battery.
4. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
From FAQ's at the end of the manual:
Question 5: How do I clear CMOS?
Answer: If your board has a Clear CMOS jumper, please refer to the Clear
CMOS steps in the
manual. If your board doesn't have such jumper, you can take off the
on-board battery to leak
voltage to clear CMOS. Please refer to the steps below:
1. Turn off power.
2. Disconnect the power cord from MB.
3. Take out the battery gently and put it aside for about 10 minutes (Or you
can use a
metal object to connect the positive and negative pins in the battery holder
them short for one minute).
4. Re-insert the battery to the battery holder.
5. Connect power cord to MB again and turn on power.
6. Press Del to enter BIOS and load Fail-Safe Defaults.
7. Save changes and reboot the system.
