The ASUS P5LD2 computer motherboard is used with ASUS computer desktops and laptops. The BIOS chip, which controls certain settings of the computer, can sometimes become corrupt if your computer cannot handle the BIOS settings changes. In order to revert the settings back to normal, you need to be able to access the P5LD2 motherboard, as a software solution is not available.

Things you need
Turn off the ASUS computer by holding in the round "Power" button on the front of the computer tower. Wait until the computer is completely turned off before continuing.
Remove the power cable from the rear of the computer tower and unplug any other cables from the computer to make sure there is no power surging through the motherboard when you touch it.
Use a screwdriver to remove the tower cover screws from the computer and pull the cover off the computer. You can now see the motherboard inside the computer.
Locate the small lithium-ion battery that is loosely connected to the motherboard. The battery is silver in colour.
Pry the battery off the motherboard and place it away from the computer. Hold the "Power" button in on the computer for 10 seconds, still without it being plugged in. This pulls the excess power from the BIOS chip.
Put the battery back into the motherboard after 30 minutes or more. This recycles the BIOS menu and resets it back to its default settings. Place the computer tower cover back on, tighten the screws and plug all the cables back into the computer. The next time you access the BIOS menu, all of the settings will be reverted to the defaults.
