Assuming that the label "HPT 370(A) Host Adapter Device Driver For Win2000/9x/WINNT" is on a disk, then that sounds good! Rather than type a whole bunch of stuff off another web page, I'll let Microsoft document it.

My fault for a slight misunderstanding - I've been using the terms BIOS and CMOS a little too loosely. The BIOS password is stored within the CMOS memory, along with a bunch of other settings. The BIOS itself is stored on a FLASH chip that does not require power to keep it's contents. The CMOS memory requires power - if you want to wipe the password, you will have to clear the CMOS. There should be a jumper on the motherboard that allows you to wipe the CMOS clear.
Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
