Hi Ali

AWARD_SW   should work. Remember that It is case sensitive.

I hope this helps.

let me say that a BIOS password is a joke , it can be easily over ridden by moving
a few jumpers on a system's motherboard or removing its battery. Also the AWARD password is printed in a number of motherboard manuals and I have read about it atleast once in PC World magazine.

With Killcmos, no need to know a default password.

Here are 3 versions of KillCmos that will blank all default setting for the bios and password.
