Remove Bios Updates

Updating your computer's BIOS settings gives you an opportunity to alter different hardware settings associated with your computer's performance. This includes overclocking the CPU and RAM chips to help your computer run faster. If for some reason your settings updates prevent the computer from booting up, you need to revert the BIOS to the factory defaults.


1. Hold the "Power" button on the computer until the computer shuts down. Remove any cords or cables that are connected to the computer, including the power cable.

2. Remove the screws from the rear of the computer that holds the computer tower case on. Pull the case off and you will see the motherboard.

3. Remove the small lithium ion battery that is connected to the motherboard. This is the battery that powers the BIOS and what saves the settings after you update them.

4. Hold the computer's power button in to pull out any remaining power from the BIOS chip and leave the computer off for another 30 minutes with the BIOS battery still removed from the motherboard.

5. Put the battery back in and reattach the case with the screws. Connect the wires that you removed previously and turn the computer back on. The BIOS settings will revert to the defaults, erasing any settings updates that you may have made.
