Hi aznsjater51,
Why do you need to reset the CMOS?? If you dont mind me asking ??

have a look here and scroll down to the pics. It will show where the battery is. remove the battery for a few minutes and the CMOS will reset to default.

ok i bought a new proccessor and installed it on the mobo. then i put the one that belonged to the mobo that worked fine, so when i powered the computer it showed black screen but the harddrive was running fine and the cd-rom so i asked people on forums and they said to reset the c-mos. so i took out the battery and did not work. so right now im looking for the cmos pins.

Make sure the CPU is seated properly. Sometimes they can be tricky !!

What happened when you removed then replaced the battery??

Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords.
The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation.
If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor.

Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch :
CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD

Hi,

Instructions Here

But removing the battery would do the same thing as long as you also removed the power cord from the wall outlet.

I can't answer your question about the battery without actually seeing it, the picture is not clear enough for me to guide you, sorry.

The clear cmos jumper will be labled J4 on the motherboard use a magnifying glass if necessary when looking at your board.
