    Try discharging the CMOS RAM - the MOBO manual should indicate a 3 pin
    jumper, on one setting the backup cell is connected to the RAM/RTC, move the
    jumper over and it shorts the NVR supply rail. You have to re-enter all your
    BIOS settings after doing this!

    Use a cmos cleaner that reset the bios to defaults.

    Remove the battery first. Or just remove the battery for 24 hours. (or so)
