BIOS SETUP PASSWORD
I have recently tried to access the bios setup by pressing delete at startup
and I am being asked for a password which I have not put one on. is there any
way that I can bypass this to change the boot sequence.

Try removing the CMOS battery and re-jumpering the pins so the memeory
is wiped out. This will require you to look at your MB book to get it
right.

Re: BIOS SETUP PASSWORD
I think removing the cmos battery should be good enough. Keep it removed for
3 minutes atleast then that should reset the system board to where there i no
password.
