    I thought I may try to find my answer here from the experts. I am working
    with an old computer made in about 1996 The files on win 95 seem corrupted I
    am trying to boot from a floppy. However the a drive does not seem to be
    working. It seems to be connected properly. I was trying to get into the
    bios to check the boot drive sequence however I ran into a password request
    which is unknown. I looked for a cmos battery. I did not find a round small
    disk like battery object. I was told if I remove this It may free up the
    password request.
    I need some help here is there a jumper that will free up the password
    request Thanks for the help.

    Some of the batteries were large (1 1/4 ")square and velchoed to the
    back wall with a harness going to the mb, which can be disconnected.
