often the manual for your motherboard will tell you what jumpers to work with to clear the cmos. if you don't have a copy of the manual, check to see if you have one on the cd that came with your motherboard or check the manufacturers website for a downloadable copy usually in pdf form so you'll need adobe acrobat which is free for download and very easy to find
hope you find what your looking for

there are two little solder dot on the upper right side of the mother board that neeb to be shorted, no jumpers, just two little dot you need to touch together with a screw driver or something conductive.
