Why is it that when I have set up a password on my Dell Dimension Windows 98 second edition that you only have to press cancel instead of entering the password and pressing OK one is able to access the system as though no password was even entered?
Any tips on this would be really appreciated as I want to ensure that people not authorised to use my computer are able to access my files etc.
click here BIOS is [Basic input output system] it can usually be accessed from tapping your Del. key on startup.
You will see a screen that needs the keyboard to navigate. Use the Up/Down/Left/Right keys to move around. Use the Enter key for yes and Escape key for no. By looking in the BIOS you will see the option to set a Password. Choose one and then exit from the BIOS with the "Exit and save" command.
If you think you have made a mistake, or altered anything you should not have done, then don't worry, just use the "Exit without save" command. j.
