Another failure has occurred. • Ensure that the cables are properly

Board Components" on page 65).
• If there is an error message on your screen
identifying a problem with a device (such as

device to ensure that it is functioning
properly.
• The operating system is attempting to boot

Try this to clear the CMOS
Reset the current CMOS settings:

1. Locate the 3-pin CMOS jumper (RTCRST) on the system board.

2. Remove the jumper plug from pins 2 and 3.

3. Place the jumper plug on pins 1 and 2 and wait approximately five seconds.

4. Replace the jumper plug on pins 2 and 3.
