    Sam: not always sometimes they just lock the bios setting and it will still boot.

    senario 1:will run OS but cant change settings
    download Ultimate Boot CD boot Go to bios tools any there will work i found one that just wiped the BIOS memory tryed one safe wipe and it worked.

    Senrio 2: wont run OS
    take out CMOS located on mother board (only for those who know what there doing). or take out the battery and leave it for ages and it should lose all power to the CMOS and it will forget its settings
