It's battery or jumper but that should have that jumper, it's from your motherboard manual. They may be difficult to see as there two very small pins.
yes i did find it, and i looked at the internet that i should short circuit both pins, and they used some kind of tool which i didnt have so i tried using a screwdriver to touch them both at the same time

Found them.



To try and cover everything I'd start from the begining.

-Power off system.

-Unplug computer & monitor from wall (or surge protector, whatever your using).

-Remove CMOS battery.

-Put screwdriver between jumper for 15 seconds.

-Put CMOS battery back in.

-Plug system & monitor back into wall outlets (or surge protector, whatever your using).

-Power up system. If it boots go into the BIOS and revert to to default.

-Save & exit.

so an update to this problem. I contacted ASUS and they said the problem is that i skipped to many updates on the BIOS. I sholdve updated slowly like step to step since there is an update that is important inbetween. So the only option is to recover it with a USB Stick but the USB slots on my Motherboard doesnt work. The last and final option is to change my bios chip which has a chance of 50% that itll work and function normally again. So because of the bios chip price including the delivery , and there is no guarantee that ill find the bios chip slot and sucessfully replacing it ( and if i did, it doesnt guarantee that it will function again) . Ive decided then to buy a new motherboard. RIP my old motherboard.
