Did you follow these directions?

Removing the battery and "Clearing the BIOS completely" just resets all the BIOS settings to their default settings, it does nothing to the BIOS itself. There's usually some jumpers that have to be changed to accomplish this correctly though. Without changing the jumpers, nothing is reset, nothing happens.

Exactly, just get into the BIOS and set things correctly, and it should be fine.
