That was careless. Jumper 13 is your CMOS memory clear, power off & bridge it.

Doesn't get any simpler than that - If you have any access to SEE the current settings (just not change them without password) then write down everything as its currently set - so that you can reset those settings; or you might have a not-very-functional computer after the flash..
There I go again, making assumptions that people know what things do... thanks for pointing those out. Factory defaults is what I'd expect(?)

Factory default is good for 95% of the time, but if you rely on a special raid card or something similar to boot up - its good to have those settings right.

**notably, people with advanced hardware know where to configure it in the bios
I tend to think of BIOS passwords a bit like locking-up your socks. You might be technically more secure in some way, but it's more likely to cause a problem (such as this) than solve anything.
