I hope somebody will read this and share their knowledge.

Dell Inc 0PP150 I have this motherboard.

There is a Blue Password pin.
The White CMOS jumper pin is missing.

I have a shunt from an old computer.
I tried it on pins 2 & 3 and even on pins 1 & 2.

Computer will not boot with jumper pin in place...just a long solid beeeeeeeeeep!

What the HE77 is the deal with this one?

Well....I figured this out by myself.

I tried installing the jumper and then powering up.
All I got was a long beep.

So I carefully installed the jumper on pins 1 and 2 while the pc
was running.....
It restarted like a dream and now CMOS settings are being saved.
All CMOS errors have stopped.
