|You cleared the bios and removed the battery? Did you clear it with the 'clear cmos' jumper? |
If you used the jumper you need to jumper it to the clear position for a second or two and then back to the standby position. Have the power cord disconnected when you do it.
Are you still getting the password request when attempting to get into setup?
Are you using a USB keyboard? If so, switch back to a PS/2. Some bios' won't recognize a USB keyboard or that option first must be enabled in cmos/bios setup.
Are you hitting DEL at the right time?
You need the model number of the board. The type of bios means nothing as far as ID'ing the board.
