Unplug your computer first . Now remove the cover. Identify the J7 jumper either by a diagram on the inside cover or locate it by writing on the motherboard . Remove the jumper cover for about a minute and replace. Some moterboards want you to move the jumper for one set of pins to another but that will be described on the inside cover instruction . The good ole' standby in case you can't find the jumper is to remove the backup battery for about the minute . The down side to this is if you have custom setting you will need to re-enter them. Hope this helped .
