Sir, we have adopted this procedure, but the problem is that pressing the enter key on the clear password is not displaying the dialog window.

Did you check? Did it clear the password?

Yes, I have checked, it is still asking for password as before.

You powered back off and restored the jumper to its normal position before you checked?

I am running out of ideas. You are sure you are moving the yellow jumper? It should be the only jumper that is this colour.

Sir, after looking at the motherboard manual, I got the jumper and then I set the jumper according to you.

But the problem still remains, the password is not opening.

Are you sure you are talking about the bios password, or a password assigned to a HDD/SSD? If the latter, we cannot help you.

Sir, believe me, I am telling about bios password only.

Then, the board has failed. It is 12 years old, and should be replacedd.

 

Get a new board that supports current memory and processors.
