Hello my son set the password in the bios on his emachiens amd 64 /3200 poenix/award bios I guess he was expecting an assault and yes he forgot the password. I have tryed setting the pins there are three pins and I moved them over one cector and left it for 10 rs but nothing also all the back door passwords I could find nothing worked. I know the next step is to remove the battery and then reset the bios afterwards but yet I would like to know if there is another thing I can try first ? It's not life threatining I just wanted to make a few changes in the bios any ideas would be helpfull.
Thanks
Tokeno

Are you sure you tried the right jumper?

But I have to close this topic for violating the BC rules:

If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
