I just replaced my BIOS battery and now with all the settings erased, I'm trying to go into the BIOS and fix them, but it's asking me for a password and won't let me get in without it. What the heck? Isn't removing and replacing the battery supposed to get rid of all settings, including the BIOS password? I didn't have a password on my BIOS before I replaced the battery, and now I have no idea what this one is or how to get around it. And I can't take the battery out to make it forget, because taking the battery out was what started this mess to begin with. :confused: Anyone know how to get in?
