BIOS Password


Dan D

Somehow my 1 year old set a password in BIOS but she
either forgot it or she mistyped it. Now we can't get
past the password prompt when booting up. I believe that
it is in the BIOS. Any ideas on how to either access BIOS
and change pw or disable?

Check with your hardware vendor -- the steps differ and generally involve
running one of their utilities or moving jumpers or removing CMOS battery
