Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Your only option is to press <F1> to enter BIOS setup.
It is not possible to boot any OS nor enter any recovery consoles.
The SVP has been initiated, and in order to clear it, the settings must be wiped within BIOS.
I have had some luck with removing the BIOS battery, and shorting out the pins for the battery, which can drain the power from the capacitors that are keeping the BIOS settings alive. And obviously, just removing the BIOS battery has no effect until ALL the power is drained.....hence, shorting out the battery contacts (touching them together with some metal) to discharge all remaining power in the inline capacitors. However this doesnt always work, and really is not practicalt on a laptop, as those BIOS batteries are typically SOLDERED right to the mobo, making removal VERY difficult.
SOLUTION:If you have lost the SVP (SuperVisor Password), chances are you will need to have the system board replaced.
However, if you do manage to regain your SVP but are unable to get rid of the "ERROR 0199" message, try this:1) Enter BIOS setup utility with your SVP2) Press F9 to restore default settings3) Press F10 to save settings and reboot
BACKGROUND:Even if you regain your SVP, it may be troublesome to get rid of the 0199 error.In the Hardware MANUAL, the instructions are to enter BIOS setup and press F10 to save the settings. Changing security settings, disabling/changing passwords, clearing the security chip - any of these MAY NOT get the ERROR to go away.While not making much logical sense, restoring the BIOS to factory defaults triggers the error to disappear.I think this is a bug in the BIOS. The error should have disappeared after entering the correct SVP and saving settings with F10, as instructed by the manual. Restoring default settings does not seem related to clearing the state of the security system. But it works.
