If removing the green clear password jumper did not clear the BIOS P/W then someone set the Stringent Security setting in the BIOS which does not allow removing the green clear P/W jumper from clearing the P/W.
You will need a new motherboard...that is your only option.

You must have set the stringent security option then.
Yes, if you can remember your BIOS P/W, you will be able to get in.
If you can get in, then I recommend you don't bother setting a BIOS P/W, or at least disable the Stringent Security Setting.
