Setting a Password

Follow these steps:

1. Use the cursor up/down keys to highlight a Password parameter (Setup, Power-on, Hard Disk, or Resume) and press the Z / 0 key. The password box appears:

2. Type a password. The password may consist of up to eight characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9).

IMPORTANT:Be very careful when typing your password because the characters do not appear on the screen.

  1. Press E . Retype the password to verify your first entry and press In .
  2. After setting the password, the computer automatically sets the chosen password parameter to Present.

Four password types protect your computer from unauthorized access. Setting these passwords creates several different levels of protection for your computer and data:

  • Setup Password prevents unauthorized entry to the BIOS Utility. Once set, you must key-in this password to gain access to the BIOS Utility.
  • Power-On Password secures your computer against unauthorized use. Combine the use of this password with password checkpoints on boot-up and resume from hibernation for maximum security.
  • Hard Disk Password protects your data by preventing unauthorized access to your hard disk. Even if the hard disk is removed from the computer and moved to another computer, it cannot be accessed without the Hard Disk Password.

When a password is set, a password prompt appears on the left-hand corner of the display screen.

1. When the Setup Password is set, the following prompt appears when you press M to enter the BIOS Utility at boot-up.

Setup Password

Type the Setup Password and press Ill to access the BIOS Utility.

2. When the Power On Password is set, the following prompt appears at boot-up.

Type the Power On Password (a symbol appears for each character you type) and press ll to use the computer. If you enter the password incorrectly, an x symbol appears. Try again and press Ill.

3. When the Hard Disk Password is set, the following prompt appears at boot-up.

Type the Hard Disk Password (a symbol appears for each character you type) and press In to use the computer. If you enter the password incorrectly, an x symbol appears. Try again and press Ill.

You have three chances to enter a password. If you successfully entered the password, the system starts Windows.

If you fail to enter the password correctly after three tries, the system hangs. To change a password, follow the same steps used to set a password.

To remove a password, follow the same steps used to set a password, except type nothing in the password boxes.
