In regards to your Query , Please refer below for details
The CMOS is a computer chip responsible for storing settings of a computer system. The word "CMOS" is actually an acronym which stands for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor.
Most users have undoubtedly witnessed a message stating "Press DEL or IF to enter Setup", or something similar when a computer has been powered on. If the DEL or F1 key is pressed at this instance, something called a CMOS utility screen would appear on the screen. Various hardware settings can be manipulated on this screen, such as the geometry of a hard drive, which device to boot first, and so on. And You will save those settings
The Jumper which is placed on the Mother Board for clearing CMOS , Typically the "clear cmos" is 3 pins with a 2 pin jumper.
You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off.Then return to 1-2 pin position. Avoid clearing the CMOS while the system is on; it will damage the mainboard.
When you set the cmos jumpers to the clear setting the computer turns on and the n Off this is a normal process of reseting the Bios .
Once you have cleared the CMOS set the jumper to default Position and then start the system .
You will be prompted with a Message to Enter in to Bios . Press Del or F1 to enter Bios
Now you can set the Bios to default value save and your system is ready to start the Operating system
I hope this helps
