1. my problem before this was I some how unplug the ide cable to the floppy, so ...
2. so yes, I did check the tabs.
3. this is an old computer that use to be used for a network workstation nt. I don't have acess to bios unfortunately.
try keys like f2 f1 or delete. Sometimes the BIOS doesnt tell you what the key is. Better yet try all the function keys. And since it is from a company it may very well be password protected in which case you should remove the BIOS battery, 30 min should do. It is a coin cell battery on the motherboard you cant miss it
that could be a problem because now that i think about it. the company may have hidden the prompt to get into bios from within the bios and probably password protected it. There are other wasy to get around bios passwords. Google bios passwords and you might be able to get by this problem. It is really odd thought that the battery is stuck. You sure it doesnt come out?
