Hi,

Clear CMOS jumper enabled, meaning the motherboard will appear completely dead until you change the jumper back.

Apart from taht you should not need to do anything else.

Cheers,

An little more explanation- The Clear CMOS jumper disconnect the CMOS from the power supply and battery. You should leave it off for a few minutes, and then replace it. This clears the CMOS and then restores power.

I hope this helps !

FYI,

This process allows CMOS settings to be reset to default values.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

you must put the clear CMOS jumper back to its pins 2-3 normal operation otherwise the computer will not start.

pins 1-2 are clear CMOS.

please do not consider accepting this for an answer. ive just quoted what everybody else is saying except i though id explain which pins are what to make it more clear.

i hope this sorts your situation.

you may need to go into BIOS and redetect your hard drive settings before rebooting into your operating systemm

cheers

Whoa there, this procedure varies from system to system.  Check your motherboard's manual for how to do it.  Some systems want the jumper on a few seconds while the system is off, some want to be booted while jumped, etc, etc.  So, what does the manual say?

You are saying DEAD?  Assuming you did put the jumper back did you remember to switch the power on from the back of the system?  If you unplugged it, did you plug it back in?
Is it making a strange beeping noise?  What's up?
