everytime i start the system, i get asked for a password, this password is from the mobo and not the OS so how do i get rid of it?

here are some images.

i've clicked F5 for optimized defaults but it does not get rid of it, F2 does nothing.

this is what i see if i click the security tab on the page above, as before F5 and F2 does nothing, if i click password it give me no options to remove it, only to change it.

what can i do?

Clear RTC RAM (3-pin CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.

To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.

2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.

3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.

4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.
