got a packard bell tried to turn off the boot password in setup, typed my old password then under new password all i did was hit enter, and under confirm password all i hit was enter. now when you turn on the computer it asks for a password but nothing wil work. using any password don't work or just hitting enter won't work. someone told me that you could use a jumper on the motherboard to bypass this but do not know where to place the jumper. need help quickly..

You'll need to ground yourself after unplugging and removing the case by touching the power supply to be safe against Eloctro-static Discharge (ESD), don't want to zap your mainboard, then remove the CMOS button battery for 5 minutes. Replace the battery and try again.

Some computers have a optional Bios reset jumper and procedure, consult the usders manual for your computer. But removing the battery always works. Just don't zap the inside of your computer, hold your feet still and ground yourself each time after moving your feet.
