Question about Medion Computers & Internet
When powering my notebook up it says system bios m1.00 system date: 09/09/2005 then at bottom of page says entering system configuration utility, then flashes to enter password boot password
You need to clear your CMOS settings, where the password is stored. It is volatile memory, but there is a small hidden battery that keeps the memory stored. You need to temporary remove it.Remove the small plastic cover on the bottom where your RAM/Hard drive reside. It should be a single screw. There will be a small 3v Lithium Ion coin battery in there. Remove that battery, remove your laptop battery, and unplug your power adapter. Leave it all unplugged fora couple minutes, put it back together, and your password will be gone.

Here is the link to your service manual, when you click on it and bring it up...it is a pdf file so you'll need adobe or another pdf reader, go to page 40, that is the directions for resetting and removing the BIOS/hard drive password. Good luck

A direct way to blank out a BIOS password would be to remove the CMOS battery for a bit; I'm not sure where that would be in that particular laptop but commonly it is a small round flat battery

To enter the CMOS setup BIOS you hit f2 during the power on. After you enter the bios to the boot up screen and select first boot up = CD ROM. Save the configuration and reboot. Now pop in your windows XP cd into the CDROM, your computer will bootup from the CDROM. You can now reinstall windows.
