    ok, so I got my power supply.

    I tried the program (softpaq) that is supposed to reset the original bios settings, but it was cock blocked by the bios password. I also tried most of the passwords listed above.

    is there anything else I should try before going after CMOS batteries?

    I head there is a program called 911cd, but I don't know if it has the ability to bypass bios.

    yeah, I was planning on doing the simulation this weekend, but I have to work a lot, try to get my laptop up, do a bunch of lab reports for my classes, and watch the super bowl. it will probably be next weekend before I get to it. unless I decide to go out of town, which would push it back again.

    anyway, I found a owners manual for my laptop finally. I think I can just remove the batteries to get the password off. see section 1.3 of the manual to see what I am talking about.

    removeing the battery (it's about the size of a quarter) will clear the cmos, yes.


    i have noticed that on certain ami chips the password is reset to ami
    upon removeing the battery

    nothing like that is mentioned in the manual so it probably will be reset to null

    yeah, about that... turns out, my nice new 40GB hard drive was light enough to be mistaken as trash by my roommate. that is about the most depressing thing thats happened to me in a long ass time. not only have I been waiting, what feels like forever, to get it up and running, but my whole justification for not doing homework was that I would get my laptop running. and to top it all off, I have to wait 4-5 days for paypal to have enough money in it to buy a new hard drive, so I probably wont get it till the middle of next week.

    I am so pissed

    most women i know are clean freaks

    another thing about women i noticed is
    they like to rearrange the furniture about once a week
    but they expect you to do the rearrangeing
    they just tell you where to put it
