All the passwords will obey the following rules:

  • All the passwords can be set or cleared in BIOS Setup Security screen.
  • The password entry consists of eight alphanumeric characters. At least one character must be assigned.

Supervisor Password controls the access of the whole BIOS Setup Utility. If the Supervisor Password is set, the system will pop up the password dialog box to ask for the password when the users press <F2> for entering BIOS Setup Utility.

If the Supervisor Password is set and Password on boot is enabled, the system will pop up the password dialog box to ask for the password when the system is powered on or resumes for S4 state.

If the users fail three times consecutively in password verification, the system will be hung up and the users need to manually power off the system.

If the User Password is set, the system will pop up the password dialog box to ask for the password when the users press <F2> for entering BIOS Setup Utility.

If the Supervisor Password is not set at first, the User Password can not be set. If the Supervisor Password is cleared, the User Password will be cleared, too.

If the User Password is set and Password on boot is enabled, the system will pop up the password dialog box to ask for the password when the system is powered on or resumes for S4 state.

If the users fail three times consecutively in password verification, the system will be hung up and the users need to manually power off the system.

  1. Highlight the item and press "Enter", a dialog box will be shown to ask the users to enter new password and confirm new password.
  2. If the users want to reset password, a current password will be required to be tapped in at first. If the current password is correct, the users are permitted to enter new password and confirm new password for verification. If the verification is OK, the password setting will be complete after the users press "Enter".
  3. If the password entered does not match the current password, a dialog box will be shown to ask to re-enter the password.
  • Set HDD Password: When shown as "Locked", the hard drive password currently can not be changed or disabled. To change or disable it, turn off the system and enter Setup immediately after turning it back on. Press "Enter" to input change, or disable hard drive password.
