    I bought my laptop second hand and it had a BIOS password on it. I eventually found the password but I can't type it because some of the characters are really wierd (see pic). So long story short, i need to know how to enter these into the BIOS password area.

    P.S. Is it me or are you only supposed to see ******* for the password box as in the number of * don't increase and they are there at the beginning. I have a Peonix 1 bios

    You should take the laptop back and get your money back. This is kind of a touchy subject in tech forums as laptops with BIOS passwords are usually stolen.
