Clearing CMOS Vs. Loading Bios Deafults



P5WD2P

Question,,,,,,With 5 hard drives and all working semi-ok now ( 4 out of 5
restarts are fast, one takes forever)

Will clearing the cmos perhaps clear out perhaps some junk in the bios
(though i flashed the bios today)

i mean what advantages does clearing out a cmos have over loadingt bios
defaults?

Thanks to the experts here from whom i continue to learn from
