I have an advent laptop. A password has been put on which requires entry before the laptop boots up. Phoenix SecureCore seems to be the software.
I have tried removing the CMOS battery but it doesnt help, and there are no apparent jumper switches. I have read elsewhere that the password is stored in the chip and the only way to clear it is to remove the chip and do something with that.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to clear this password ?
