Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

Just open up the top, and reset the bios, remove the power and then there is usually a jumper near the battery, or take the battery out and then press the power button to clear any stray voltage and put the battery back in, drops the password, re-detect the HD's and away you go :0)

Yeah, but that might wipe other important settings (not sure if there are any though :)

Anyway, if theres a password on offer, no probs :)

Bios is so simple you cant wipe out anything really important, but if you know how to reset it, then you know what to check :0)

Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

Bios is easy until you re flash it with the wrong one(not intentional) some tossa said it was the right one i was stupid to listen to him but anyways you learn the hard way. And its just not worth buying another one so I have a motherboard and celeron sitting in the cupboard gathering dust. One day i will come across one for it and use it as a spare machine.

Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

Bad luck with the flash
It was always a nervous 30 seconds when flashing the bios, due to our bodge electricity supply.
Thankfully, with the dual-bios motherboards, much of the pain can be avoided . . .

Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

Hmm, theres really no point flashing the BIOS unless something is actually wrong.. I don't know why people do it.. a friend put a virus in his BIOS doing that, do you know how hard it is to get a virus out of the BIOS?

Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

I did it becuase it was a supposed update for temp sensors and a few other things. To bad it was not correct not that it bothers me this was bloody a while ago now. Just saying how it is. These days you dont have the drama's as with stuff a few years back

Re: BIOS password (for Lisa)

i'm of the opinion that the people that download and install the lastest little updates to well, everything, and also have everydamned utility installed to keep everything in check, is like the pc equivilent of rice. crap installed because it says its good on the box.
(yeh theres exceptions, but you get the idea, if not.. well .... ignore what i said)
