Cannot enter password in bios Tags: Chipsets Dell Studio Xps Motherboards Last response: April 13, 2010 11:58 AM in Motherboards Share jp51901 April 13, 2010 11:42:39 AM a little knowledge is dangerous... dell xps 410, xp pro: I was getting BSOD and tried to recover, it asked for admin password--tried everything and could not get it to work, so I reset all passwords in system set up--mistake! I am now stuck in IDE configuration, asking for password. Each keystroke produces a "beep" from the pc, but no characters display. When I press "enter", it tells me password is not correct, and after 3 times, HALTS!, then nothing. I have tried removing the battery and swapping the jumper pin back and forth. Is there anything else, or is this a bad motherboard? Any help is appreciated! thanks, J More about : enter password bios jp51901 April 13, 2010 11:58:10 AM OK--I feel stupid! I thought I would see "****" when typing in password. Apparently that is not the case and I should stick to my pay grade. Sorry for the bother. J m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
