Turn off your PC, unplug it from the wall, open up the side panel, and find the jumper marked "CLR_PSWRD" or something like that near the bottom right of the board. Swap the jumper onto pins 2 and 3 (opposite of what it is now) and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then put the jumper back to where it was and see if it works.

Yes. Did you also remove the CMOS battery?
