Have you tried updating the BIOS? That should reset everything... If the PW is stopping you, try to force flash load it...

some manufacturers of mother boards kindly put a jumper next to the bios. The temporary removal of this resets the bios.

I picked up this bit of info when I had a similar problem "look in your motherboard/PC's manual for a jumper that will resetthe CMOS. If you can't find it in the manual, look on your motherboard and find the battery. There should be a jumper with three (3) pins directly adjacent to the battery. To reset the CMOS Settings/Password, move the jumper to the 2-3 position if it is currently 1-2, or 1-2 if it is currently 2-3, then turn on the system, wait a few seconds, then turn the power off. Now, move the jumper back to the original pins. Presto, no more password.

If, however, you can't find a jumper, it may be necessary to remove the CMOS battery. If the battery is not soldered to the motherboard, this should be an easy task. With the computer's power off, remove the battery and replace it a few minutes later. That should do the trick.

Take note that resetting the CMOS settings may cause the motherboard to revert to a default password on some boards. The password is usually Award, AMI, etc..." sadly I don't know who it came from.

You should be able to jumper a reset of the bios on the board. I would be quite surprising that removing a jumper didn't work but perhaps you need to jumper it special to clear/reset the bios. You may have just missed the setting.

Download this PDF Quick Reference guide:

As someone else mentioned above, you can force flash the box using a specially configured floppy disk. There's a description of how to proceed on p.19.

Good luck!
