Hi everybody,

I have never replaced a motherboard before, but this weekend will be my first time. I've read on other forums that I might need a BIOS password. Is this true, where would I get this, and what is the purpose of as BIOS password? I forgot to mention the motherboard is a swap of the original - no upgrades.

Thanks,
-J

bios password is put their so you cant acess the bios info and change settings
if your getting a new fresh motherboard then it should not have a bios password and if it does then you should tell the people you got the motherboard from
(if you want to do it your self then take out the cmos/bios battery for 5 minutes look on google for more info but really it shouldent have a password any way so nothing to worry about)
