........

still no joy Undecided
but i did find this if it helps anyone else ...

ftp://ftp.packardbell.com/pub/itemnr/CS2...4HR_SG.pdf

page 71 shows how to reset the jumpers or run a dos programme ... i cant see how i could run a programme in this state so it would have to be the jumpers ...

also page 96 shows how to move the ram board out of the way ... it seems to be just four plastic tabs that need to be opened ...

i didnt mention it was a Easynote ts 13hr

well ... suprisingly it worked , i crossed the four small solders (marked j1 and j2) each way with a screwdriver for a few seconds , replaced the ram and it booted without the password request! Big Grin i can now enter the bios again . needless to say i wouldnt have tried this if i hadnt had the manual ...

my problem now is the bios even with no passwords doesnt let you change the boot order ... their in the boot menu but greyed out and not selectable , ive never seen this before - surely theres some way of running a bootable cd .
