I am trying to help a friend with a virus damaged PC, but the A drive is not included in the boot sequence and the BIOS is password protected. the motherboard is a PC CHIPS M598LMR. It is an old system running ME but I would still like to sort it.
Any ideas on how to discover or reset the password. Confused

According to http://www.pcchipsusa.com/Manual/M598/M598.pdf

Quote:
Change Supervisor Password
This item lets you configure the system password which is
required every time when the system boots up or an
attempt is made to enter the Setup program. The
password cannot be longer than six characters.
Note: Keep a safe record of the new password. If you forget or
lose the password, the only way to access the system is
to clear CMOS memory by holding down the <End>
key then powering on to reboot the system.


Hope this helps

Many Thanks for your info I have been able to locate the original builder and get the password, but the manual has been very useful. Very Happy
