Not sure what to do.
The BIOS settings are probably in a little NVRAM so removing the battery wouldn't help. Typically there would be a dipswitch somewhere that you flip on (or off, as the case may be) and then power up to clear the BIOS. Turn off, flip the switch back to the default position, and there you go.

What a funky little machine that is...
