help with hardware!
I want to get into BIOS to check the settings, My plan was to set up a file server with 2 drives for Raid.
The adventure of a life time.

I tried loging into BIOS by following the screen pronts... then I downloaded documentation from IBM and followed instruction:
press enter then when next screen comes up press F1 but the next screen does not come...
documentation said that the 2nd screen is not presented when there is a password set, so I fallowed the instruction on resetting the password and that did nothing. Then it talked about POV chip and showed where it is (but not a very good picture!) I do have something in that location and so I am thinking I have a POV chip
I'm not sure exactly what a POV chip is. But have you tried all possible hotkeys to get into the BIOS? If so, try resetting them BIOS by removing the CMOS battery for about 2 minutes.
