I am just curious as to what this is any info on this bue pin would be highly appreciated.

Your manual doesn't seem to cover this but those pins are the clear cmos jumpers. The purpose of the pins is to reset the cmos to the default settings. This is sometimes useful if you have set one or more of the settings in the BIOS wrong, causing the computer to not boot.

The proper procedure to use the feature is to first unplug the computer, then press the start button a couple of times. Then open the case and after grounding yourself, temporarily move the jumper from pins 1&2 to pins 2&3. Then return to pins 1&2.

Reconnect the power cord and start the computer. Immediately tap the proper key to enter the BIOS (setup) screens. I am guessing it may be the del key but consult your manual. Once there you will need to reset the date and time and possibly some other items, like boot order.

Thanks Othehill it was a very helpful and is good to know what it does now. My dad nearly went overboard trying to figure it out on his own. I just wish he had a bit more patience and was not so hard headed to simply ask for help, he has a bad habit of tinkering with things on his pc that have no conflict with the problem at hand. Thanks to your reply I was able to prevent further destruction to an innocent pc. He has a factory asus cm6850, I had to ask him did you learn anything from this? he said not really, I was about ready to undo everything I just fixed and have him go figure out your post for himself. He started smiling and said no matter how badly I screw things up on my pc you always find a way to get the answers to fix it. I could not accept the glory for this fix but I said you can thank a person named Othehill, he gave me the knowledge to fix your pc. He sends his thanks to you friend and a *thumbs up*, god bless you be safe.
