The jumper JBAT1 allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which includes system setup information.
CAUTION: Do not change any jumper setting while the computer is on. Damage to the motherboard can result.
Turn off the PC and unplug the power cord.
Move jumper JBAT1 to pins 2-3 for 5 seconds.
Plug the power cord and turn on the PC.
After you restart the PC you will need to enter BIOS setup by pressing F1 at the first startup screens to reset any custom BIOS settings.
