Question about PC Desktops
Do you mean BIOS settings or WIndows was re-installed?
If BIOS setting then there is a jumper on the mainboard - obtain manual (or tell us what mainboard it is) and then use the jumper (link) on mainboard to reset CMOS.
The other way is to disconnect all power and then remove small button cell battery from the computer, then press power button.
Then wait for 1 HOUR before re-inserting battery and powering up again.
If you switch on before 1 hour then you will have to wait 1 hour again. If 1 hour is not long enough wait 2 hours or overnight. (usually it takes 20-40 mins to discharge capacitors).
