Your computer provides two password features in System Setup to help you secure you computer:
l
Supervisor Password
l
User Password
Supervisor Password
The Supervisor Password is the highest level password present on the computer. When the supervisor password has been set, it must be entered to access
computer Setup. It also can be used to boot the computer if a User Password has been set.
Once set you will be prompted for a password when you enter system setup. Passwords can be up to eight characters long.
NOTE: If an incorrect password was used, you can still view the settings in System Setup. You will not be able to change any settings until a correct password has been entered.
NOTE: The supervisor password is a systems level password. Do not confuse this password with any operating system account password. If an account password is enabled in the operating system users and administrators must enter the operating system account password to gain access to the
operating system.
If the supervisor password has been forgotten or lost, the password can only be removed using the CMOS jumper on the system board. More information on
the use of the CMOS jumper can be found in the system board jumpers page. Using this jumper will also clear the user password.
Enabling Supervisor Password

4.
Enter System Setup.
Highlight Change Supervisor Password and press <Enter>.
Enter a password at the prompt and press <Enter>.
Enter the password again to confirm and press <Enter>.
User Password
The User Password is for users who only need to boot to a operating system on the computer. It does not allow access to System Setup. When the user
password has been set, it must be entered in order to boot to an operating system.
Once set you will be prompted for a password when the system is booting as illustrated above. Passwords can be up to eight characters long. Once a correct
password has been entered the system will continue to boot.
NOTE: The user password is a systems level password. Do not confuse this password with any operating system account password. If an account password is enabled in the operating system users and administrators must enter the operating system account password to gain access to the
operating system.
Enabling the User Password
NOTE: The User Password is not visible or accessible on the System Setup menu until a Supervisor Password has been set. 1.
