Question about Intel D945GTP Motherboard
I apparently bought a system thats not paid off yet. I got a nasty surprise recently when this system asked me to pay it off before I can use it... The protection is apparently on the MB somewhere but there is no socketed bios so I'm thinking I'll have to get a new MB. UNLESS !!!! any of u gurus got an idea how to circumvent that protection without changing MB?
Make 100% sure this is a BIOS (to be honest I cannot see how it can be), or MBR/operating system issue.
Take out the harddrive and substitute it with a fresh formated hardrive, if the warning does not appear then you can safely assume it is on your harddrive and a zero fill and reinstall will cure it, if it does appear then it is in the BIOS on the CMOS chip.
I am going to research your motherboard to see if there is a BIOS firmware update available that will hopefully overwrite your BIOS completely.

The password is in your bios there are at least 2 things to try
1) reset bios on motherboard will bewritten reset bios or words to that effect nearby will be a small 2 or 3 pin jumper setup
2) with 2 pin remove the jumper from the pin its on and fit over both pins for 20/30 seconds replace jumper back over 1 pin (not lose) and reboot
3) 3 pin remove jumper from the 2 pin it it on and fir over middle pin and the pin it was not on pins 1/2/3 jumper on pins 1/2 fit over 2/3for same amount of time
With both reboot and see if it works
Get Hirens boot cd Download burn to cd this has a lot of different programs on it some are for changing passwords etc

Format the hard drive to remove any unwanted items off the Operational Sytem. Do not use the system restore disk they provided . Or pay off the system .
