Some motherboard dont even start up when the clear CMOS jumper is in clear position. So, I guess that it will short something in your computer and you'll never have to flash the BIOS on that motherboard ever.Originally posted by: steimm
Might seem to be a stupid question, but what happens if I accidently would clear CMOS when the computer is up and running?
But, if you want to try it and tell us what happen, then you're welcome. I'm not going to risk it on my computer..
And by the way, it cannot be done accidently, unless somebody want to connect a switch on the jumper instead of having to fiddle with the jumper. And then, you could accidently use that switch instead on the others switch on the computer case...
