    My computer has, for some reason, decided to ask for a System Password when booted. We have tried every password we have ever used including debug DEBUG and just hitting the "enter" key but nothing has worked. I have removed the battery for over 24 hrs and also replaced the battery. Nada. It also shows a message about configuring the IDE which, from what I understand, doesn't make sense because of the SATA drives. Can someone help?
