DFI Motherboard Genie Bios Password.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am just listing a little advice to those of us with Genie Bios out there. I pushed my computer too far and I had to reset the CMOS through the jumper. When my system posted the Genie Bios was prompting me for a password.

"Wait a minute, I never setup a password for my bios!" I yelled at the computer (left out my uttered expletives for those of you with virgin eyes )

I searched through numerous threads at various sites and the only advice they gave was to reset the CMOS with the jumper. If this does not work for you, as it did not for me what you need to do is ---> Power down your system, remove your power cord, set the jumper to reset, pull your CMOS battery, set the jumper back to default, and insert the CMOS battery back in its slot.

Once I did this and posted to my bios the password prompt was gone. Hopefully this saves someone a little time.
