password recovery on Cisco 851

Hi!

I'm new in a company, previous technician  forgot secret on Cisco 851, so i've tried to recover it today. I've  connected to serial with PuTTy, turned of router for 10 seconds, turned  on, then i pressed break for 20-30 seconds. I couldn't get to ROMMON.  I've tried Windows Hyppertrminal, i've tried Ctrl+break - nothing. Cisco  didn't receive my break command. Why was that?

Thanks
