hi ya all i have a qdi pc which has a platinix 2 mobo in it i recently d/loaded the latest bios and it has been installed successfully or so i thought until i went on to click here and found out it was only reporting half the installed ram now platinix 2 mobo's are quite frankly an awkward piece of hardware that gets a lot of ribbing on the qdi forum part of the bios set up is to clear cmos as the old bios and the new bios get muddled up what i was wondering was will clearing cmos involve a lot of messing about because on boot up my pc shows the latest bios version (2.2) but on bios software programme it says v1- xx so i have been advised to clear cmos to see if this will cure the discepancies in the bios reports
look forward to hearing any comments

Well normally clearing the BIOS involves either looking for the jumpers and moving them to the "clear BIOS" position or taking out the CMOS battery for a few seconds and then replacing it, the first option needs good light and a magnifiying glass helps:-)
