    So did ya have the power cable from the wall socket unplug?
    Also with those solder pads (the 3 little dots where the jumpers should've been) have ya taken a flat bladed screwdriver and just shorted the 2 required? :?:

    Are you sure you didn't clear it in a previous attempt? What are you expecting to see after you clear it? All it does is clear out any changes you made in the BIOS and reset everything back to it's defaults.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
