  1. Best answer
    Look for three jumper pins on their own on the motheboard, probably near the 3V battery. The battery is about 20mm or 3/4" in diameter, you can't miss it.

    Typically, pins 1-2 will be bridged by a jumper. Remove the jumper and place it over pins 2-3 for about five seconds. Replace back on pins 1-2. CMOS will now be cleared (reset).
  2. Alternatively your BIOS should have an option to set fail-safe defaults (or similar wording) which should set everything to either default or basic settings and you can build back up from there
  3. Third way:
    Remove the power. Remove the battery for 30 secs.
  4. Your answer was right on. Thank you
