I have removed a previously existing BIOS password, and now it wants some BIOS password but accepts none. This is phoenix award bios v6.00, for a PowerPC. I need to get it with any password

There should be a jumper on the motherboard to reset bios. You can also reset it by removing the battery and holding a screw driver or other metal between the 2 battery contacts.

What make and model motherboard? There should be instructions in the manual.
