Physical clearing of the CMOS cache


Another way that users can reset their BIOS defaults is to manually reset a jumper on the motherboard. When I started working as a systems administrator at a local high school, the students went into the BIOS and set a password to exclude other students. Resetting the jumper on the motherboard and using a default BIOS password to enter access prevented fixes this problem.

Before you begin, make sure your computer is turned off, the power cord is unplugged, and then wait about 30 minutes for your system to cool down. Reason why? Also, there may be some electrical charge when you turn off and unplug the unit. You don't want to risk electric shock or damage to components.

Keep opening the CPU and look for a little jumper; there can be two: one to reset the BIOS and one to reset the BIOS password. Remove both, reconnect the music center, start the system and wait for about 10 minutes. After your BIOS restarts, reconnect the jumpers, then connect the system unit, reconnect external devices, and power on the system.

On my HP desktop, the CMOS jumper is actually a button that I basically press for about 5 seconds. Therefore, this procedure varies depending on the make and model of your computer.
