If I start the computer with the CMOS jumpers in place will it fry the board or CMOS?

No it won't, you always leave it on (in the don't clear bio position)
Not sure what you mean by position. Is there a particular jumper you should use or can it be one off from the back of a Hard drive?

Thats the jumper, also look for that topic in your motherboard manual "cmos" topic.

IDK about the HDD jumper, i guess it should work, but don't take it off your HDD that's inside you computer already.

I would wait for other members to post here before you do anything.
Thanks for the reply with the video. I have just an open reset post that you can put a jumper on. I put a jumper on it and forgot I had and started the computer. Do you think that toasted the CMOS or board?
