Hey there, I'm Tim and will be assisting you.....Can you give me more details on the issue? Is this a operating system password? Or is it showing up before the OS?
ok, are these units over 3 years old?
Shane, let me know when you are back please. This sounds like bad CMOS batteries....but even if it was a password ***** in the bios by a Kid it can be cleared, but i need info...
Gotcha, interesting.....was the battery pack out and unplugged when the cmos was removed?
Understood, so cmos battery removed, and no luck, no silly secondary cmos type battery on the motherboard?
I don't see any jumper terminals on this, which are usually only good for if the CMOS battery is soldiered on...The problem you are describing sounds more like some type of hard-drive password, would you agree?
Shane, let me know when you are back.
Shane, i'm back on....Please let me know when you are around.
