Pull out the CMOS battery and leave it out overnight. There should also be some jumpers that you could set to reset the BIOS as well...

You dont even have to leave it out overnight. 30 seconds or so will be quite sufficient to erase to BIOS. Also you could find those jumpers that Elba was talking aboot, and use them to reset the BIOS.
