Cisco 2507 router

Cisco 2507 router

Hello guys. This is the first time I have posted. I have a Cisco 2507 router that I brought and I am having the wierdest problem with. I am attempting to log in via the console port. In am   using Hyper-Terminal settings
9600-8-N-1.(classic 2500 settings)
I connect to the router fine, but the text is garbled and encoded. I actually blindly attempted to boot to ROMMON prompt and set the configuration register(hoping it was some wierd baud rate) to no avail. I have tried every setting hyper terminal has to offer to no avail! I can tell that it seems to boot fine but the text format is unreadable. I am considering replacing boot ROMs but have not tried it. Has anyone out there seen this or does anyone know how to fix this
