BIOS Password Bypass

So I forgot my BIOS password I setup , and now I can't access the BIOS configuration.
Is there anyway I can bypass/remove the password without having to switch places of the jumpers on the motherboard?

Thanks in advance.

The only proper way I know is to contact the manufacture with the information they require.

Please read our forum rules.
Rules #6 I believe covers this password problem.

No, that jumper you mention is precisely the only way to remove the password without knowing it. Refer to the motherboard manual (look for "CMOS clear jumper" or something like that) for where to look in the board.

A commonly spreaded myth is that removing the battery does clear the CMOS. While it can be done, it's unreliable and typically corrupts CMOS in the process, requiring a reset with the jumper to fix.

Thanks for the post, I did it before I read your post, and it worked. I had to take out my graphics card, then switch places of the jumpers and remove the battery of the motherboard. After that I discharged it and reverted the jumpers, placed back the battery and there was no password. Although my MAC Address changed, it isn't that much of a deal for me because I'm connected to the internet through a cable.
Anyway thanks for the help to you my friend(giving you reputation),
Thread marked as solved.
Peace
