Cannot change the boot order in setup

Hello to all, my problem is the next:
My friend put a password to get in the setup, but how usually happend....he forgot the password.
Then i reset the CMOS and now i can get in the setup but i can't change anything, except for the clock, and all tha i need to change is the boot order.
And I've already try practically everything!!! :fou:
Someone have already the same problem? Or know how to fix this?

    I found a way to solve my problem:

    I downloaded and installed the updated BIOS with the help of mini windows xp that comes with the "hiren's boot cd 10.4" and now i can access everything inside the Setup again. Thank you for you help :)
  6. Ow, just one more thing, to i can make the boot by the CD, i needed to get out the HDD, because this way the notebook makes the boot by CD!!!
