Ok, my problem is, someday I needed to go to the bios to turn on hyperthreading, and somehow it was locked with somekind of password. So I was told it might be because something tried to hack it.

But now I need to reformat and re-install but I need access to the BIOS to swich startup devices. Because the CD doesn't boot on its own. In any case I was told that I should be able to reset my bios (to the way it was before) by doing something to my motherboard and I do not know what that something is. Theres a photo of my mother board somewhere on the internet... just yahoo it.

I'm just a studient needing his computer in proper order... could anyone help me achieve that? I have classes tommorow so I really wish someone can help me fast if its not too bold on my part to ask that Wink

I really appreciate any help you guys can provide! Thanks in advance!

Tap the del key at boot and enter the BIOS. I believe you can set to default by pressing F9 but look at your selection at the bottom to see what your keys are set for.
