Hello I have a Phoenix Award CMOS.

Well I tried to get in there today to check some settings. And I noticed it is asking me for a password and I hadn't set one up. Well then I finally figured it out. My brother set one up. :evil: :twisted: . Well anyways I was trying to change the boot order. And I realized something very odd all the settings were greyed out and I was not allowed to make changes. I then went to the main menu and saw that I was a user and not a supervisor.

Is there anyway I can become the supervisor again or reset the CMOS so that I can be the supervisor.


Thanks alot.

Contact your brother for the correct credentials to fully access the BIOS.
