Gateway p4 700c BIOS recovery

The battery went dead. I replaced it but now it turns on and no video. It seems that if I pull the jumper off completely and have the 3.5 floppy in there I might be able to recover. I can't find the bloody disk, if there ever was one. Any options here?

My Asus A8N-VM CSM socket 939 MoBo with Athlon 64 X2 CPU used to work without problem, but has now developed, without apparent reason, a strange behaviour.

After several times switching off and again on, it did ...
