My Stream 14 laptop wont let me passed the bios screen. It's asking for a password I didn't set. Honestly haven't used it in months, so no idea how this came about. But I've tried what I'd assume to be the usual defaults (e.g. password, admin, etc.) It just disables the computer and gives me a code.
Any help is appreciated 🙂

I know we used to provide Disabled Bypass Codes -- but we don't do that anymore.
I wish we could help you, but sorry, due to recent changes in Community policy, we are no longer able to provide any assistance with password reset or recovery issues.
Also please note that now, to resolve a forgotten BIOS password issue, a system board replacement is required -- and additional customer costs apply.
