Shut down the computer. Remove the power lead. Move the jumper to the clear position. Leave it there for a few seconds then replace the jumper back from whence it came.

Re-start the computer and enter the BIOS set up and set any settings that need setting. Save and re-boot.

There is no need to remove the battery. It is the power from the battery that is used to clear the memory.
