Once in above site, scroll down to "Locking the hard disk drive" sub-heading.

Re: Bios password

Venkatesh,

The notebook was secured as per the section you referred to on the link. Unfortunately i have changed the password by overwriting the original password i set by pressing the enter key and that the enter key is not recognised as the password is the problem. Anything you can advise would be a real help. Many thanks in Advance

Re: Bios password

Chad,

I found the manual and it says exactly the same just omnibook 6000. I am not sure whether the other models were sold here in Australia.

Re: Bios password

I ran to the same problem just moment ago. Trying to disable the password by setting only enter as the password sets the password to something weird. Has there been any solutions to this?
