Trying to test a USRobotics PCIe 56k modem for use in a condo customers door entry system.
Didn't work at first so I removed it and rebooted into the BIOS and enabled PCIe. (Big mistake, wasn't thinking).

Now boots with no video, 1 long, 3 short beeps, and no way to get back into the BIOS to reset.

I took the CMOS battery out and replaced hoping that would reset settings to default disenable the PCIe.

No jjoy.

2 short beeps, a series of long beeps (about 8?) than 2 long.

Is there anyway to reset this?
