Hello folks. I've got a PCCHIPS M530 board (no, not mine) with a password set on the BIOS. There is no jumper or battery on this board to clear it, and boot order is c: then a: so I can't boot from floppy. Anybody got any ideas (short of chunking the board)?
Thanks,
MT

I found a program called KillCmos which will clear the cmos for you. I thought i had the program over at thetechhandbook.com but it looks like I don't. I can either e-mail you at work tomorrow or you can search for it yourself.

Well right now it is on at my desk at work. I'll send myself a e-mail to post it for you. BTW, some virus programs will pick it up as a virus sense it erases your bios settings.
