You can reset bios using jumper on motherboard and then you will have to enter new setings for hard drivers (use autodetect )

You can download killCMOS from:
http://www.mindspring.com/~deathboy/products.html

 KillCMOS basically "resets" your computer's CMOS settings to the factory defaults. Works with ALL CMOS.  KiLLCMOS only changes checksums & values that makes the motherboard CMOS revert back to factory defaults.

  **  IT DOES NOT ReProgram your CMOS like a FLASH ROM Writer does.

  ** IT DOES NOT DAMAGE Hardware.  KiLLCMOS reads/writes to areas of the CMOS that gets written to everyday, the difference is the VALUES that we give it(cmos).

This will reset the CMOS Password.

If you forgot your Windows95 password, click start/find/"files or folders"
Search for *.pwl and either rename them or delete them.
