  MSI Z77A-G43 - cmos jumper lost 
 Date Written

Hello everyone. I'd really appreciate a piece of help here. I lost the jumper for BIOS reset on MSI Z77A-G43. How can I replace it? I'm sure it was somewhere in the box but I'm afraid I threw it away. There are only two pins. Can I for example just "connect" them with some metal object like paper clip or something when I need the BIOS to reset?

Thank you...

Do you have any old computers around?If you do pull one off that PC.I have hundreds of those caps just encase.When ever i find an old PC i always salvage what ever i can from it and i always grab the jumper caps for just this reason

Also if your sure it was a open circut then you could just connect them some how with a wire or whatever when you need to clear the bios .
