My PC keeps shutting down and the message I get is to reset some of my BIOS
settings, but I don't know the password to get into it. I've searched all the
news groups and tried all the back door passwords I could find, if there is
anyone who knows more about this please help. I am running an Award Software
International 6.00PGN, please if you don't have anything positive to add,
keep it to yourself.
Thanbks Chris

Is this a desktop? If so, open the computer and either 1) look for a
jumper to clear CMOS - you would find that information in the
motherboard's manual; or 2) remove the motherboard battery and leave it
out for a while. Sometimes the reset will only take a few minutes,
other times you might need to wait overnight. In both cases, this will
set your BIOS back to factory default.
