Password problem in BIOS

Hi guys,

 

Today I set a password in BIOS and when trying to restart and enter it I receive an error.

Is there a way to reset it? Maybe remove the battery on the motherboard? Thanks.

I have only a PS2 gaming keyboard here. But what difference it is between my remote keyboard (the same I used when setting it) and a directly one?

Yep,  I found in manual a System Maintenance switch. I try to solve it somehow.

 

Position Default Function S1 Off Off = iLO 4 security is enabled. On = iLO 4 security is disabled. S2 Off Off = System configuration can be changed. On = System configuration is locked. S3 Off Reserved S4 Off Reserved S5 Off Off = Power-on password is enabled. On = Power-on password is disabled. S6 Off Off = No function On = ROM reads system configuration as invalid. S7 — Reserved S8 — Reserved S9 — Reserved S10 — Reserved S11 — Reserved S12 — Reserved

 

PS. Thank you schoondoggy for all your help in all the topics!

It seems that some switches set to ON allow me to access BIOS and IP but I am not allowed to reset settings or passwords. If anyone knows how to reset this please advise!

Ok, I managed to start installation via switch S5 = ON. But I still want to reset this, so any advice is welcomed.

I have not found it, there are some jumpers but no description in the manual, so I didn't tried.
