I'm locked out of the system!!!

By spm9928 ·
I recently had a PC donated to an organization I volunteer at. Upon startup it prompts for a password to enter in the Win 98 system. I don't know the password and need to know how to get into the system so I won;t have to junk the PC of erase the hard drive.

If it's a windows password - just click cancel and you're in.
If it's a BIOS startup password. Open the box and find the 3 pins with a jumper in between them that are labeled BIOS and switch the jumper, power up, then power off and put the jumper back in the original configuration.

I hit the cancel for the password, but there is no Startbar or any icons at all. How do I access these??
