WRAPPING UP

To reinstall the chip, orient the notched end of the chip or the dot  such that it aligns with the notch in the socket. This is the same orientation observed when the chip was removed. Carefully match the pins to the corresponding socket positions. Gently press on the top of the chip until the pins begin to slide into the socket. Getting the orientation wrong WILL DESTROY THE CHIP!

All pins must begin moving uniformly into place. Be sure no pins are bending inward or outward. After you are certain that all pins have properly engaged the socket, firmly press on the chip until it is fully seated.

You MUST discharge your CMOS before restarting you computer. There is normally a jumper or shorting pads to do this and you will need your motherboard manual to determine where this jumper is and where to move the jumper. Check our FAQ's page if you find no jumper. It is usually called CLCMOS or CLRTC. Failure to do this can corrupt your bios chip requiring a reflash to fix it.

It is suggested that you test your computer prior to reassembling the case to be certain that the system is functioning. If all appears normal, reattach any components and reassemble the case.
