I am having problems on an update to my board. It was suggested to me that I go to the Intel site to update my board. I downloaded the update and when the PC rebooted it wants me to give the CURRENT password. I do not have a password or I do not know what it is. This has rendered my PC useless, dead, inoperative. Is there someone that has a suggestion as to why this happened? I cannot get pass this on the screen. I am using Windows XP Pro.
Are you referring to the BIOS password? If yes, please check this out: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-002842.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-002842.htm
For the BIOS configuration jumper, refer to page 75 of the Technical Product Specification: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865perl/sb/c3176401.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865perl/sb/c3176401.pdf
