But there is no need to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:
Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.
If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.
B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

Unplug your machine from wall outlet. Open the case and remove the flat battery from the motherboard. Wait 5-15 minutes and replace it, your machine is now at default settings.
If this helps plz take the time to write a couple of word testimonial. Thanks.
get in the bios settings and make sure to have the hard drive in the boot line, try different settings like SATA/IDE compatible mode if the drive is not seen by the motherboard, try different plugs. if the bios settings don't stay , check the position of the clear cmos jumper and change the backup battery of the motherboard. Try to boot from cd. maybe a virus took off the boot flag from the hdd.
The AMD K6 II / 350 has a 100 MHz bus speed and a 3.5 multiplier. I was online with a tech at HP and even they don't know, but if they send the motherboard manual as promised and it has the info I'll post a comment. They did say it can't be done in the BIOS. I can tell you often the major manufacturers used boards where the jumper locations were soldered and didn't even have pins to change the settings, making it pretty hard to upgrade the processor.
Do you see any jumpers on the board at all? Sometimes the multiplier & clock speed info is printed right on the board in tiny white letters.
hello CAVdesert, I don't think you ever have to change the jumper settings on the motherboard.You may need to change in few cases but otherwise, changing motherboard jumper settings is not recommended. However, if you need to configure the jumper settings for your Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive etc, Please refer to the following document.
