i am trying to install a new hard drive in an old pc. I want to obtain access to the bios to make the floppy drive the 1st boot device,so i can use a floppy to format & partition the new harddrive. Problem is the bios is password protected so i can't get access to it ! please help any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks!

HAve you tried removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes to reset the BIOS this should get rid of any password.
