Resetting CMOS Setup

Intel Based Motherboard/Mercury Mobos:

You could see three pins(say 1,2,3) projecting upwards(written CMOS under them) with two of them short by jumper (1 and 2 Short)

Remove the jumper and Short (2 and 3) and leave if for 8 Seconds.

And restore the position of Jumper (1 and 2).

Be sure to replace the jumper else your computer wont start.

AMD Based Mobos (Gigabyte):

There will be two pins projecting upwards (Written CMOS under them).

Get a Jumper (From your HDD/CD Rom) short them for 8 seconds and remove it.

CMOS is reset
