    motherboard dg31pr (problem with BIOS password reseting)


      I put a password for BIOS Security.

      I thought it will be needed only for editing BIOS settings.

      But I need to enter password every time I power on the machine(before booting).

      Also if I enter to the BIOS settings almost all menus are disabled .

      what I do.............

      plz help me....

          Hello Chellon,


          Intel Desktop Board:


          Method to remove Supervisor Password:

          Switch the BIOS Jumper to the Configuration/Maintenance Mode

          Then you will have an option Clear BIOS Password.

          Select this option

          Save and Exit

          Switch off the System

          Put the jumper back to normal position.

          You can do a CMOS clear also by removing the RTC battery and disconnect the power plug for a few mins.


          I just did it on my Intel Board.


          All the best,
