    don't know of any software.
    You can tell if the bios resets by checking the date, it will default to the date of it's last flash. If the date in the bios is not changing then leave the battery out over night. "Shorting out" the mobo is the same as resetting the bios, leaving the battery out does the same thing

    UBCD Live BETA, and use PC CMOS Cleaner, it resets BIOS settings and password.
