Remove the cmos battery and wait for 3 minutes and place it back...
Alternatively you can remove the CMOS Jumper present near the CMOS battery and place it back it will clear the CMOS memory...
To be more specific, if you do remove the CMOS battery and if you turn ON the system everything will be flushed in CMOS immediately...

I had similar mobo and this is what the Asus technician told me. Take out the round battery in your motherboard and flip it around and put it back into the battery slot.(it sounds weird but that is what he said) Hold it there for 20seconds and then put back in the right way it was.

Your cmos should be cleared now. Make sure your pc is switched off when doing this.

I removed and replaced the 5v jumpers on an Asus p4p800 mb and now USB is hosed. Should I clear the cmos?


Yeah, I would, but READ YOUR MANUAL. There are several jumper settings that can be changed. Just be careful and you should be OK. You will have to run thru the BIOS setting if ya clear the CMOS. Default should work unless you have a RAID or something fancy.

You would remove the cmos battery on a desktop motherboard for about 30 mins then replace. Reboot and it should be reset. Hope this helps.
