I reset the bios by removing the battery (couldn't find the jumper), although when I booted the computer, it still stuck on the same screen. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I found out what the problem was. A cd in the dvd drive caused the computer to stop during post. The problem was fixed by just taking the cd out.
