|I tryed e-machines online techsupport they arent any help...so im going to copy & paste my problem here.|
Get a drink and maybe some chips this is gonna be a long one... I <3 copy & paste.
This all started because
I had forgotton my bois password after i came home from work today. (ugh! stupid me)
After not remembering the password and shutting down and unplugging the power cable from the power supply I did the following:
I removed the password jumper for bois,it restarted and it said: Password cleared by jumper! As it booted up it asked for my password again. which had me a little worried.. so i tryed removing the cmos battery and the bois password jumper too. That did not work either.
Then I removed all power from the computer had the cmos battery out and the bois jumper out. I also removed a 2nd jumper which was close by the password jumper.(this password jumper has 2 pins)The other jumper i pulled out had 3 sets of pins on the mobo but before i booted back up i put it back in its same EXACT place. After i waited about 5 mins i put everything back in, booted up and the password was cleared. When it did boot it sounded like the cpu fan went at a high speed for a few secs then back to a low(Normal) speed.
Heres the problem:
The problem im having now is the cmos battery wont save my Bois settings anymore. (yes i did put it in with the plus side up and its touching the prongs :P ). Then I shut down and tryed unplugging the power cord taking the cmos battery out booting up without it (not like the system saw it anyway). After that, I tryed shutting down and putting it back in again. Still nothing. What can I do to fix this? Did i somehow corrupt the cmos/bois? maybe from taking that one jumper out and putting it back in while everything was powered off? If thats the case then how can i fix it? Oh i forgot to mention i tryed booting up once without the bois password jumper and the cmos battery and the RAM out...maybe that did it?
