Unable to access BIOS due to unknow Pasword !

  Giggle n' Bits 00:29 09 Feb 2003

This may be a virus, not sure as I have never seen it hapen before.
I recnetly noticed my floppy drive had changed to a 5" size drive and when I went to access the BIOS I was confronted with a Password box wanting a code!.

This BIOS is a Awards Modular V.6 with the BIOS string> W6315MS OR W631SMS V1.2 113000 19:44:10

If this is a virus will a new installed say Norton AV 2003 shift it and undo this change.

Is there any safe and none damaging way to undo or stop this BIOS Password lockout

Or does anyone maybe Jazzpypop (The Man) know of a list of possible access codes I could try.

Please help or its a new Motherboard.

you could always take the battery out of the MoBo and wait a few mins, then put it back. Then you should be able to get back into the BIOS np. You will need to re-detect all the drives etc and the other options in the BIOS as well.

Yes it's possible to reset the BIOS password, but I'm not sure of the forum's rules on telling how to disable it. Someone with more knowledge of the forum's rules will answer for you.

Rules are in this Forum your are not to attack manufacturers or put them down, nor discuss Pirate software things.
