Default Re: Hdo Password Reset!!!

Can a mod move this to the suitable area.
Also please don't type in caps!

You would have to go into the bios and adjust it, not sure.

Exclamation Re: Hdo Password Reset!!!

Hi there. I am having the same issue. Did you find a solution? PS I'll look for the appropriate area, and the HDO password is needed to disable/enable/change it in the BIOS.
