Locate the 3-pin CMOS jumper (CLEAR CMOS) on the system board

Remove the jumper plug from the CMOS jumper (CLEAR CMOS) pins 2 and 3.

Place the jumper plug on the CMOS jumper (CLEAR CMOS) pins 1 and 2 and wait approximately five seconds.

Remove the jumper plug and replace it on the CMOS jumper (CLEAR CMOS) pins 2 and 3. "
