Question about Computers & Internet
Machine contaminated with virus....will not boot past password...ie when password entered machine shuts down saying incorrect password
What may be easy to you and me darkchild IS usually tricky for the average end user. Just pulling out the battery doesn't always remove the bios password. Most laptops nowadays store the bios password on a chip and pulling the battery won't clear those types of stored passwords or HD passwords either, so keep this in mind.
I read on a forum that most Medion laptops use this bios password:
Give it a shot.
