You either reset the bios jumper or you take out the battery for 12 hours.

This will reset the bios.

This is also useful for burglars. lol

First option sounds easiest.. but i dont know where that jumper is.. its a SIS 5598 mobo.. anybody know ??? or where I can read about it.. the SIS site is a real head sratcher..

Yippeee by using a magnifying glass and a pair of long nose pliers, I found that jumper and reset the cmos .. great stuff ..thanks IDIOT :-)
