    How can I disable a Platform Administration Technology Password?


      Hello folks,


      Someone I know is given an old PC, based on a 946 chipset board and having a problem; there is no sound output. I'm known as the tech savvy guy in my circles, so they requested I have a look. Apparently, board is old, so there is no driver support for Win7, the machine is running currently. I want to downgrade to WinXP, and solve this problem. Thing is, a corporate feature, known as  Platform Administration Technology is enabled and there is a password, denying me to access to BIOS.


      Long story short, how can I disable PAT so I can access to BIOS/Boot settings on a D946GZIS desktop motherboard?


      Any help is really appreciated, I really don't want to dissappoint this guy. : )
