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

Hi all, new user here!

I have an old NEC Versa LX laptop with a PII 366 (MMC2) on a 440bx based mobo. I am trying to upgrade to PIII 600 (MMC2). The module fits just fine, it looks exactly like the old one. The problem is that whenever I boot i just get beeps. I think it has to do with the bios not allowing 100mhz fsb. I know that NEC only officially supports PII CPUs, but my understanding is that the volatge and pinout on the MMC2s are the same. I am running the latest bios (releaseed in 2001) and would appreciate any help or suggestions. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I noticed that the LXi appears to use the same chipset as the LX and supports PIII MMC2 modules. The only difference seems to be the video card. Should I be able to flash an LX into an LXi?
