BIOS issue please help

Specs: Windows 8.1, I5-2500 , 8gigs
So fml I went into the bios to change my intigrated graphics card from the CPU to the gpu now I can't access the bios at all tried f2... tried pic recovery. Tried the command prompt. The pic starts fine nothing wrong . I thought changing the graphics settings in the bios would solves my issue of possible frame rate drop in games.... well I was wrong now instead of my 55fps I run about .5 fps... I really don't want to pull out my mother board to reset the jumper but it seems I might have to. So back to my problem. When I shut the pc off to start the bios I get a no signal because I am hooked up to a tv. But when I don't try to get into the bios it starts fine. Any clue what's going on and how I can reset my bios to default without going into it???

(Assuming desktop) If you are using a wireless keyboard, try a USB wired one. Wireless keyboards are not active until Widows loads.
If using a USB keyboard but it is not connected directly to a rear USB port on the motherboard directly try it. USB ports that are connected through a hub, even an internal hub which includes many front USB ports are not active until after Windows loads.
If you have a machine that uses USB2 and USB3 ports, try the USB2 port. Many early USB3 ports were run through third party chipsets that are not recognized until Windows drivers load.
(IF Laptop): Try a USB external keyboard.

Otherwise you are probably going to have to reset CMOS through jumper to get in to reset BIOS.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Please post the make/model of your system. It's difficult to offer advice when we have no clue what hardware you're working with.

"The pic starts fine nothing wrong"

What does that mean?

"I really don't want to pull out my mother board to reset the jumper"

Why would you have to pull out the motherboard to reset the BIOS?
