I have this very-very old 486 board with an amibios.
thing is moved the wrong jumper and erased the cmos,normaly this would not be a problem but this BOARD HAS A BUILT IN password protection so if anyone erases the cmos they will not get into the setup without a factory-predefined password- a strange thing i have never come across before.The password is only 3 characters long and i do not know it, i get 3 guesses then it just freezes.Anybody out there who have any idea about how to get rid of it?i have tried to remove the battery for long times but it is probably written inside of the biosprogram.
