Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Manufacturers often have <a href=”http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.shtml”>backdoor BIOS passwords</a>. Or you could change your bios password to a different password or turn this feature off — by resetting the CMOS on your motherboard. Look in your computer’s manual for the CMOS switch settings for your motherboard. If you don’t have the physical manual, you can probably find an online version by using a search engine.

    Hi, Within a few seconds of pressing your Power button to turn your system on, you should be able to access your bios by repeatedly pressing the appropriate key based on your system. The key is usually F1 or F2 . Sometimes it's the DEL key. If your system continues to boot into Vista, you've missed the short window of time where the bios is accessible. Retry the operation a bit quicker after pressing the Power button to turn your PC on. You can also try one of the other keys if you're unsure of the correct key for your system. Best Regards,
