The simplest and quickest way is to take the Cmos battery out.
Wait 10-15 min. Then re-insert this should put the system back to defaults. You may also have to Rest the Cmos.
Find the Cmos reset jumper on the Motherboard. Jumper should be on pins 1 and 2 (default). Put jumer on pins 2 and 3. Do this with the Power off and plug pulled for outlet. wait 10-15 sec and place the jumper back on pins 1 and 2. Plug machine in and restart.
