Theses instructions confuse me .... With the PSU off. (Is this the tower/cpu??
Move the jumper on the clear CMOS pins (have no idea what this is), leave for ten seconds, then move back to original positions. Switch on the PSU,
Ive reviewed the screen shot and I am unsure

Please watch this video, you need to do the first part, moving the jumper plug over, leave for 10 seconds then move back. > https://forum-en.msi...78956#msg178956
No, not the CPU. Open the computer tower by removing the side panel. then please follow the instruction.
I am a bit confused .... so you want me to open my cpu up??
Disconnect all USB devices, except the keyboard. Remove all discs from the optical drives.
With the side panel removed.
1. Touch a bare metal part of the computer case for 1 second.
2. Locate the CMOS Jumper block. (see first image.)
3. Clear the CMOS.
4 Replace the side panel.
5. Plug the cable into the back of the tower, > plug the cable into the wall socket and switch on.
6 Press the start button.
Do the lights flash on the kb? then one light remain lit?
Does the POST messages scroll on the display?
What is finally displayed on the screen?
How are the four diagnostic lights lit on the front of the computer?
ignore the reference to immage 3 in the below screenshot.

Please answer the questions first so we know what happened.
Do not do anything else, I, or a colleague will post further instructions.

Ok plugged power cord and kb usb back in ..... turned it on .... the kb lit up but did not flash, lights on kb are on. I don't think that kb ever flashed but i can't be to sure since that is something I never really noticed. As for the diagnostics lights which I believe are the lights on the front of my tower all 3 are lit .. not sure if there are 4 as I do not clearly see if there is suppose to be a 4th on.
Not sure what you mean by "Does the POST messages scroll on the display?" Once it turned on I got a black screen ..
It has all kinds of description of the comp and the copyright info on the top .. but the bottom says ::
Performing automatic IDE configuration ....
Drive 1: Disc Drive
Drive 4: CD-ROM Device
Drive 5: CD-ROM Device
Floppy diskette seek failure
Time-of-day not set - please run setup program
Invalid configuration information - please run step program

Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility

In there you will have to disable the floppy drive seek.
Set the time and date again.
If your system has auto drive then use that to identify your drives.
The message you get on the low cmos battery may be a indication of the problem. If the battery is low it will need to be replaced and you will have to repeat the above steps again.
The battery can be bought from most computer shops, Radio Shack or even a watch repair shop.
They run about $5 to $10 for a battery.

Drives 1, 4 & 5 says "on"
I disabled floppy.
What should I do next? Or do I have to replace battery before continuing??
Also set time & date
Still in bios
