Hi:

 

If removing the green clear password jumper did not remove the BIOS password, then someone set the stringent security option in the BIOS settings which overrides the clear P/W jumjper.

 

Your only course of action in that situation would be to replace the system board with one that does not have a BIOS password.

 

See the F10 setup guide at the link below, page 6.

Password Options (This selection appears only if a power-on password or setup password is set.)
Allows you to:
● Lock legacy resources (appears if a setup password is set)
● Enable/disable network server mode (appears if a power-on password is set)
● Specify whether the password is required for warm boot (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) (appears if a poweron password is set)
● Enable/Disable Setup Browse Mode (appears if a setup password is set) (allows viewing, but
not changing, the F10 Setup Options without entering setup password)
Enable/disable Stringent Password (appears if a power-on password is set), which when
enabled bypasses the onboard password jumper to disable the power-on password.
