    I had recently bought a used Gigabyte 8IXRP, P4 1.6A
    but was unable to boot or POST at all.

    Used a PCI ATI, AGP Leadtek Geforce3 Ti 200, AGP ATI 9200 still cannot POST.

    Can i know how i can clear CMOS coz there is no pin on the clear CMOS.

    Had tried taking out CMOS battery and disconnect power supply.

    Suspect that previous user may have overclocked till it cannot boot.
    The seller refused to refund.

    So, can anyone advice ? Pls help.

  2. Here's what my 8KNXP manual says:

    If you want to erase CMOS...

    1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.

    2. Remove the battery, wait for 30 second.

    3. Re-install the battery.

    4. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.

    From FAQ's at the end of the manual:

    Question 5: How do I clear CMOS?

    Answer: If your board has a Clear CMOS jumper, please refer to the Clear
    CMOS steps in the

    manual. If your board doesn't have such jumper, you can take off the
    on-board battery to leak

    voltage to clear CMOS. Please refer to the steps below:


    1. Turn off power.

    2. Disconnect the power cord from MB.

    3. Take out the battery gently and put it aside for about 10 minutes (Or you
    can use a

    metal object to connect the positive and negative pins in the battery holder
    to make

    them short for one minute).

    4. Re-insert the battery to the battery holder.

    5. Connect power cord to MB again and turn on power.

    6. Press Del to enter BIOS and load Fail-Safe Defaults.

    7. Save changes and reboot the system.
