Clear CMOS by unplugging the system from the wall and then removing the CR2032 CMOS Backup battery from the board for 15 minutes.
Considering the age of this board, you might want to put in a fresh battery while you are at it.
Hope this helps,

With a description like that, it is difficult to help you. Please provide a complete description of what your original problem was and what you have tried to do about it. Since you seem to be struggling with English, try responding in your native language and we will translate - but remember that screen captures, etc. that include non-English text are useless as we cannot translate these.

The 0x2d POST code is not explicitly documented, but it is in the range used for memory and chipset initialization and failure handling. Possible causes for halting here are bad/failed memory, bad memory configuration, bad chipset/PCIe configuration, etc.

Now, you can always use the Back-to-BIOS button on the board's backpanel to get yourself back into BIOS Setup. After doing so and arriving in BIOS Setup, use the F9 key to reset the BIOS configuration and the F10 key to save this change and exit. Remember to then power off and reset the Back-to-BIOS button. If there are changes you need to make in the BIOS configuration, you can use F2 to enter BIOS Setup when you again power on.
Hope this helps,

This is telling us nothing more. The failure is occurring during the memory initialization phase. 

From working condition to failing condition, what changed? Did you add, remove or replace any component?

Barring that, what are the DIMM(s) that you have installed (full product ids, please)?

Next, let's try some diagnostics. I suggest that you disconnect *all* external components (USB, Audio, LAN, SATA, eSATA, etc. - including keyboard and mouse) from the motherboard and remove all but one DIMM. See if the system will POST successfully with that DIMM in the DIMM1 socket. If not, try it in the DIMM2 socket. If not, try it in the DIMM3 socket. If that too fails, start the process again with a different DIMM in the DIMM1 socket.

If you cannot clear POST with *any* single DIMM installed, there is a high probability that a major component on the motherboard has failed. In this case, it's time to pack it in.

Hope this helps,

In case you don't have them, I have attached all of the documentation for this board.

For each DIMM that you have, you should've performed three power-on tests with that single DIMM installed into DIMM1, DIMM2 or DIMM3. Please be thorough and test all combinations. If you have 4 DIMMs, that would be a total of 12 power-on tests. If you want to be really thorough, you could also try with that single DIMM installed in DIMM4, DIMM5 or DIMM6. That would be am total of 24 power-on tests.

Do not forget that, during all of these power-on tests, the Back-to-BIOS button should be engaged and lighting up when the power button is depressed.

If all of these single-DIMM tests fail, then either *all* of your DIMMs are collectively bad (highly unlikely), the motherboard is bad, or the processor is bad.

If, on the other hand, you are successful in POSTing and entering BIOS Setup, immediately use the F9 key to initiate a BIOS Configuration reset.
