My computer, a Dell Precision WS420, has has two jumpers on the motherboard, one for resetting the real-time clock and CMOS, and another one whose only function is to erase the system password.

The jumper that I believe that you are referring to is the jumper that is for "Flash BIOS Recovery" operation or "Flash BIOS Normal" operation. The "Flash" refers to a BIOS chip that is "flash" (software) upgradable, and does not refer to "flashing" a password on the monitor. If you have changed the jumper from the "normal" operation to the "recovery" operation and back to "normal" again without a problem, then I would say that you were very fortunate. Instructions to access CMOS settings (sometimes referred to "system" settings) are displayed early in the boot operation and consists of keys that must be pressed while the message is displayed. The keys can be a combination, such as, <CTRL-ALT-ESQ>, or a function key. This happens on all of my computers, the newest of which is an AMD K6-300, and the oldest of which is a 1990 586/133 (formerly 486/33) model. A. Roger Turk, P.E.(Structural) Tucson, Arizona
