There should be a "Clear CMOS" jumper. I believe it's normally on pins 2-3.
To reset the BIOS you take it off, put it on pins 1-2, and then put it back.

You might try removing the battery on the mother board for a few minutes
then putting it back and starting the computer. That should reset the bios.
