Hi:

 

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're very welcome.

 

Sorry that someone enabled stringent security.

 

Starting with the dc7900 and newer models 8000 Elite, 6000 Pro, 8100 Elite, 8200 Elite, 6200 Pro, etc., the stringent security BIOS setting option was added.

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.
