I sure hope someone can help me. I was tweaking my BIOS settings and now I can't get my PC to boot up. I changed the memory load time from 3 cycles to 2. When I saved my settings and tried booting up the machine started beeping in long intervals and never booted up.

Is there a way I can get back into the BIOS to fix my mistake?

Clear your cmos.

I pulled the CMOS battery out for about a minute then put it back in but it didn't help. Is there another way to clear the CMOS?

Unplug your power cord that goes to your PSU. Use a cmos jumper to clear your cmos... wait couple of minutes.. and remember reposition the jumper to its original place. Also check your motherboard manual it will tell you there too. One more thing pull your ram stick(s) out and plug them in again.

Thanks Sarsoft. I was able to boot up by holding down the keyboard's insert key then turning on the pc.

Thanks for your assistance.
