    An easy way to get around this would be clearing your BIOS settings using the CMOS battery on the motherboard. You would simply remove and re-seat the battery to reset BIOS. You can take a look here if you need more guidance in terms of resetting BIOS. With that said, this would require you to actually open up the computer case. Now, there is software out there than can accomplish this for you, but I honestly think it's easiest to do it the way I mentioned.
