    Does anyone know how to recover the BIOS password without having to
    manufacture anything? I purchased a used one 3-4 years ago for my wife. She
    was using the other night and it worked fine. The next day she tried using
    it and it gave an 0271 (Check date and time) error and then showed 2 symbols
    on a black screen; one was a screen and the the other was a lock. I tried
    entering passwords that I might have used, without success. It gives me
    three tries and then it locks me out completely. I replaced the CMOS
    battery, thinking that might be the problem since it is an old computer.

    Any help is appreciated,
    Ty Addison
