Help.
I've lost my bios password. Is there any way of retreiving this?
Thanks for any advice.

A specific answer will depend on your motherboard manufacturer and model number.

If you are lucky, you will find a back-door password. If you still cannot get in, you will have to remove the BIOS battery from the motherboard.

Note that this will reset the BIOS to its defaults, so try to remember if you changed any settings.

Leave it out for about half an hour, replace it and reboot. You should now be able to get into the BIOS.

Make any changes you wish, then exit and reboot. It is often useful to set the disk detection to Auto.
