Cant reset BIOS password
Posted on 2000-03-24
I have a PC which has an intel pentium 100MHz cpu and matching Intel motherboard. The unit has a password option both when trying to enter the BIOS or trying to boot up the PC.
The motherboard does not have the conventional batteries (neither soldered onto the board or a watch like battery) and I cant see any jumpers to reset the board either.
The battery apears to be like a CMOS chip.
I have another system here with the same specs. I changes the BIOS over (Award BIOS) and the password stil apears when booting.
I even changed the RTC Chip (I think is the battery).. took it out and turned PC on to reset, but this doesnt work.
I havent played around with these type of configuration before but I thought changing the BIOS chip would fix the problem as the PC I took the BIOS chip from does not have a password problem.
What can I do?
