I have had a BIOS Password required by my work for 4 years and I took the notebook in to a shop for a replacement of the touchpad and ended up after bringing it back to work with my notebook no longer asking for a BIOS Password.
The office tech who is now on holidays made several attempts at replacing it and it could not be set.
The repair shop now tells me my integrated chip on the mainboard is gone and that the mainboard needs replacement which is very pricey. Seems a weird coincidence. Apart from this the notebook is working fine.
The office tech checked to see if there were any issues with my battery and there aren't.
Anyone encountered a problem like this before?
Windows xp, sp2
