Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

Thinkpad 600e

Let me be the first to say, I don't know much about Bios's at all...

A new install of Win95 seems to have changed the settings in my Bios so that I could not boot from CdRom. I needed that option.

So, I tried to change the Bios settings to allow CdRom boot option. I hit reset, then picked CdRom, then Floppy, then Hardrive #1, and closed out of the Bios.

Now the Thinkpad starts up when I turn it on, runs for a bit, and then shuts down without booting anything from anywhere. Worse during the running phase, it is ignoring my tapping F7 to open the Bios page. I seem to be locked out of my computer!

Help! How do I fix this?

Thanks! :D
