Ok ok so it's my own fault:
In my working system (AB9, Core 2, Corsair 800MHz DDR2) I fiddled with the RAM timings (basically put everything that was on 5 to 4), and upon reset I would just get a blank screen and beeeeeeeeeeep. That's it. Is there a key to press that loads default values, or do I really have to clear the CMOS?
As I said: Blank screen & beeeeeep is the only thing I get. NO BIOS!
Bit disappointed that it goes like that. I was only playing a little! It should provide SOME sort of function for me to reset what I've done without having to fiddle with the CMOS jumper!
Afaik short of clearing CMOS you need to get into the BIOS to reset defaults.
I would think that an AB9 gives you the option to set up BIOS profiles so that you can quickly reload your tweaked settings from default in future.
Naujoks... just clear cmos and start over.
This is why the BIOS allows you to save bios settings.... so when you blow it up (like messing with your ram timings), you can revert to a known good setting without having to key everything in again.
