Hi there @tidi

I understand that you wish to remove the BIOS/setup password on your system. I am happy to help with this.

 

This document contains the particulars for your system board and includes how to remove the BIOS/Setup password. It involves moving a jumper to clear that part of the board's memory,

Let me know if you need any further help.

@tidi,

 

From the link I gave to the Motherboard specifications it shows what you need to do with the jumper to reset the BIOS password.

 

Follow the instructions for the jumper carefully. Unfrotunately the Motherboard specifications are not showing clearly where the jumpers you need to worry about are. You will need to llok at the board carefully to find the jumper.

 

 

Here is a little video I found that covers what you are likely to see when you open your case, and talks about jumpers, which will help you find what you need on the board.

I hope this helps.
