Hi everyone,

I gave this power-on password to my laptop today. And I'm pretty sure that I did gave a pass that I always give and as a proof I think I'm unable to give a pass if it did not work on the "confirm password box". So what you guys think? Any ideas and could you tell me how to reset it if it's possible??

Thanks

Shiham

you can try this :  http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.shtml

however, you must know that the password is stored on modern PC's in a security chip,so  that only the manufacturer can give you access, after proof of ownership
