Best Answer

The clear CMOS jumper, is usually located near the round battery in your motherboard. Look for a jumper called JP1, as this is the one you need to alter.

I can't tell you exactly where it is on your board, as it differs from board to board.

The best thing to do, is to check your manual, or go to the motherboards manufacturers website, and download the manual from there if you get stuck. (Where the white pci slots are located on your board, it's usually found stamped in between the slots, it will say something like Asus A7v of similar, from here you can Google it.

If you don't happen to know your manufacturer, download a program called belarc advisor (its free), install and run this, and it will tell you everything you need to know about your pc.

Top right hand corner of the screen it tells you the boards manufacturer, and board number.

Hope this helps

Be safe

How do you rest the BIOS password?

To reset the bios password you can contact the manufacturer and request the bios master password for your laptop or computer. On the motherboard there is usually a reset jumper or contacts. This will put the BIOS into factory settings and reset the clock. You will need to get the technical data for your motherboard to find out where this jumper is. On a desk top computer it will be a jumper that shorts two pins and is stowed in a normal , running, position. Move it across for a few seconds then return to normal position. On laptops, it will be a pair of gold contacts on the board, that need shorting with a wire or tweezers. I have ususlly found them under the memory modules.
