    sometimes you can clear the cmos by shorting it on the m/b :bounce:

    you have manual if not find same should show you where you need to reset cmos
    Do Not Remove the battery (YET).
    just about all Motherboards have a jumper setup for cmos reset
    it is comprised of 3 pins in a row 2 of them are jumpered with a little black plastic block
    remove this and replace on other end of the row wait 40sec's or more remove and put it back to original position
    do not try to boot with it out of position
