Hi,

Yep bad advice but easy to fix, you just need to clear the cmos, there will be a jumper on the motherboard to do this, check your manual but its usually near the battery.

Unplug the computer and move the jumper from pin's 1&2 to pins 2&3 for 5 minutes the back to pins 1&2.

Start the computer and go directly into bios and load the defaults, then save and exit, you should be all fixed up.

Could find only one jumper on board.The manual indicates nothing about CMOS,
other than changeing the battery.The manual indicates that this board is a
SINGLE CONFIGURATION JUMPER DESIGN. The only jumper I can see is the
three pion Bios jumper.The board is an INTEL D865PERL.Thank you for the
help.

You can also reset the CMOS by taking the battery out for a few minutes, but all motherboards have a CMOS reset(it resets the bios to its original settings) so that single jumper would be the one you want it should explain that in the manual.
