im sorry whats cmos
The CMOS is most often associated with the small coin like battery that can be found on all motherboards. It contains settings that include but are not limited to, boot order, boot devices, BIOS Passwords, CPU frequency and IRQ/port settings.
To clear the CMOS you should be able to take the CMOS battery off the motherboard by pushing down a small clip holding it in. Keeping the battery off for 1-3 minutes then placing the battery back where it was and rebooting.
All this should be done while computer is off and AC cord is detached.
