I've always been the battery pulling type. I've only been forced to buy a new motherboard once due to a failed flash.

Which options are still available?
Pulling battery doesn't seem to work always, it holds it anyways on most of my systems.
Jumpers seem to be gone on my newer systems.

So far I just go into the BIOS controls and load defaults.

Last time I did that, I used the jumper. But its been YEARS since I needed to clear my BIOS settings.

I forgot about the button. Though isn't that just a button attached to a jumper anyway?

Probably, but it beats having to open the case and mess with the jumper

My current motherboard has a button so I'd press that. With my LAST motherboard I think there was a jumper but because I never memorized its location and I didn't want to risk screwing something up, I just removed the battery.

For the purposes of this poll I answered "jumper" since that's what the button is replacing.

Jumper, battery is too much of a pain to get in and out vs spending literally 2-3 seconds with the jumper
