There are no jumpers. Why would you password protect your BIOS in the 1st place? Is there several other people that use it & you're concerned that it may get tampered with? You're either going to have to "remember" what your pasasword is, or contact MSI.

Unlike desktop systems, there are no backdoor BIOS passwords on modern laptops. If such existed it would be highly irresponsible to reveal it on a public forum.

Theft of laptops is a serious problem and many users use a BIOS password to protect their data if their computer is stolen. If there was an easy to obtain backdoor password this security? would be only a minor inconvenience to a thief. Years ago laptop owners demanded something better, and manufacturers responded.

Removal of a BIOS password on a modern laptop is very difficult. It was designed that way. You really do not want to forget such a password. New members of this forum discover this every day.
