I've never "hurt" a machine by moving the reset jumper.
I might have to setup the bios values (date, time, drive type) again, but little else.
we have an old pc that we need data off of but need to attach a zip drive to retrieve the data, but a password was placed on cmos/bios and i am unable to crack it. is there a way i could jump the motherboard and still keep the date on my hard drive so i could get into cmos to install the drive? (this computer is OLD...win 95 so no automatic install stuff here). Thanks !
