    Hi guys!

    Does anyone know if it's possible to change the hot key used to access the BIOS setup?

    Thanks for the link, but I know how to access BIOS.

    Well, instead of a password, I was thinking of restricting access to the BIOS setup by changing the hot key combination. :)

    I think the hotkey is coded in firmware. Can't change that unless you update the firmware itself.
