How to reset BIOS settings to default without being able to see BIOS

Hello Everyone,
I have had a small problem. I made a change in the BIOS in the Advanced tab:
1. Video Config>DMVT Storage(or similar) to Maximum DMVT
2. Video Config> Primary Video Adaptor (from Auto) to Integrated IGT Driver (or something)

Anyways, now, I cannot see the 'Intel' splash screen to get into BIOS and I can't see the BIOS either. If I press F2, I know it goes into the BIOS though. I also can't see the OS loading screen. But after a while OS boots up fine.

This is most probably due to the BIOS settings change and the most obvious solution is to restore defaults.

I tried removing the CMOS battery and pressing power button while power cord was not plugged in but that hasn't helped. I cannot see a CMOS jumper or a CMOS reset button.

Please help me! This has also slowed OS boot up.

Additional Info about my PC:
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400
Intel motherboard (ask if you need S/N)
2GB RAM

    Well if you have a graphics card in the Pci-e slot of the board.

    Take the cable attached to it from the monitor, and connect it to the onboard video ports of the motherboard.

    You will then be able to see the bios screen.

    Thank you so much! I followed what you said, restored previous BIOS settings and now it works just as it used to....
    When I opened the BIOS the settings were not the default ones....
    I have marked your answer as the solution but can you tell me why removing the CMOS battery did not work?
  3. Because the default factory settings of the bios by default are set to use the on board graphics chip. comprocks ;)
