Bios password- how to find it?

  canard 14:24 05 Oct 2004

Was in bios and stuck for want of the password. Please can a pundit tell me how to fid out what this password is. There are no user profiles- separate entities or administrator thingies on my Pc.

Thanks Santos. Still no luck [maybe my ineptitude] so have emailed small supplier in the hope etc.

Clear BIOS using jumper or remove CMOS battery for a couple of minutes.

As Fruit Bat /\0/\, but disconnect power.

Small supplier emailed back promptly [think of all the pca readers STILL waiting for replies from the BIG suppliers] with the news that it's on the back of the unit - which numbers to use and which letter to add. This was complete with exhortation to be extremely careful. So I had the bios pword all the time but not the wit to find it. Remain very grateful that I bought this PC from a family concern- AND it was super economical financially!
