That sounds like a BIOS Password to me. Resetting that varies with make and model. Sometimes folk tell me the model series which is not good enough when it comes to exact procedures for a model.
OK, resetting the BIOS password part 2. Some companies will not help unlock the laptop unless you prove ownership. This has worked wonders to reduce Apple laptop theft.
Asus laptop says enter password. Black screen with blue block says enter password. It doesn't read USB drive; however it does read the disc drive. I called ASUS support, they said I have a virus. How do I fix this as I can not get past enter the password, no boot screen or anything. I believe it is a bios screen password. I can try to enter a password 3 times and it shuts off.
