I press the clear cmos button on the back of my case.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

This. I've never had to do it, but that's how I would.

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


Of course it doesn't work, you have to unplug the power cable also.
If your PC is not connected to the AC and you pull the battery for some seconds, there's no chance the mainboard can hold its settings.
