I got a mate with an epox mobo 8k7a+ fink its revision 1.1.

umm the twat who put his system together put a password on the bios..

Would shorting the reset pins under the battery reset this password ? or is he kinda stuffed.. :rolleyes:

There should be a BIOS re-set jumper on the board - will be somewhere close to the battery - try this first. If this doesn't work, try removing the battery for a while (I would suggest at laest an hour), then reinserting. One of these should do the trick.

Nigel is right.

there should be a pwd reset jumper or you have to completely unplug the computer and keep the cmos battery out and that should reset it

reset tha cmos

use a flathead, and reset the cmos, then load bios defaults. theres 2 solder points by the baterry it should say cmos by it
short em out and it should reset it. touch em both with the flathead for atlest 30 sec.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
