  • ASRock's Instant Boot: 0 to Vista in 4 seconds

    The coolness of the tech aside, if you need a good laugh this morning go and watch the video at the link:
    ASRock's Instant Boot: 0 to Vista in 4 seconds

    I was lol the whole time. Just watch it.

    But my understanding was that AsRock was a part of ASUS, so now I'm confused why ASUS doesn't already have this.

    Why Not?

    that was great, it almost feels fake though.

      Wow. Not because it can boot so fast but that the video was 4 minutes long to show a computer booting up in 4 seconds.

      - It's who you game with.

              So while the feature is enabled (fast mode as well) and my PC loses power, does it also clear my CMOS (like how if I pull the plug on machine while it is in standby)?

                What mobo would do that? CMOS shouldn't be cleared except by explicit BIOS menu request, or by pulling the backup battery.

                  Re: ASRock's Instant Boot: 0 to Vista in 4 seconds

                  Hmm, well I've had BIOS revert back to default settings when I've had to pull the plug on my computer when it refused to come out of sleep mode. My guess was that the BIOS settings stored in CMOS was cleared.

                  And what you said makes sense, but what has happened to me in the past contradicts and has left me wondering.

                    Was it actually cleared? Did you check the settings and see that all of them had gone to defaults? It's possible that the BIOS has some kind of "safe mode" and defaults some settings when coming out of a hard power cycle without a clean shutdown.

                      That (in bold) could be it. All of my changes to BIOS were reset to default (those changes were the RAM timings and voltage). I think the current time also got reset, because I remember having to restart a few times in order to get Windows to update the clock in taskbar.

                        na should not as once the machine boots into windows, the BIOS basicaly becomes Semi-Dormant as the CPU takes the relay doing most of the Bios job

                        so far i know of only 3 way to clear CMOS

                        1) press the little button clearly labbeled CMOS

                        2) remove the battery

                        3) inside bios menu, loads default settings

                        and as far as your clock... if your talking the time clock it really easy to adjusts it... normally it calibrates itself on the Bios Clock but if you change windows clock i think it adjust the bios one

                          Unless there was a major advance in clearing the CMOS that I missed...

                          What little button?

                          I usually have to open up the case and use a jumper to short the CMOS pins (2 and 3 on some boards) to clear the BIOS settings.

                          Actually now that I think about it...I won't have anymore jumpers handy in another few years. Which means I won't be able to clear the CMOS on my ASUS P5Q motherboard without yanking out the battery (which involves dissembling half of my PC innards to get it out).

                          Now I gotta remember to save some of those jumpers from my old useless IDE ROM drivers around the house...

                            depends on the MOBO your using... not all have CMOS.. maybe yours has one but it damn hidden or they use jumpers to do the trick... it probable that when your comp failed, your jumper shorted causing a reset... who knows... freak accidents happens...

                              I would very much like to know which boards out there don't use CMOS. I've never heard of that before.
