MSI gt 683r Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi, new here, and don't even know if this is okay to do, but I have the MSI GT683R, I bought in for my son from ebay, my ebay handle is "jaackdeth" and he wanted to put in a different hard drive, I believe a SSD drive, anyway when he tries to go into bios, it asked for a password, I have tried everything on Google to help him, but to no avail. I/He is the owner, and I can prove that, so you don't think it's stolen, I hear that a lot. Can anyone please help?? Thank you

You could try resetting the BIOS by unplugging the CMOS Battery wire and leave it for a couple of minutes (the red and white twisted cable near the fan)

Of course you need to open the bottom cover first :D

Hope that one works.

Make sure your main battery is also unplugged while you reset the CMOS.

Hi, yes had the main power out of the laptop. I still can't believe this thing. Grrr.

The CMOS reset is a fool-proof method. If all else fails, perhaps try contacting the seller? Or you could flash a new BIOS onto the laptop.

Okay, here is what I've tried, unplugging the cable for cmos battery, flashed the new bios, contacted seller, and turns out he runs a pawn shop, and had NO idea of password, he wouldn't return it either, he said that is modifying what he has for sale. Apparently he doesn't realize if you can't get into the bios, you have half a computer.

I've tried some somewhere that I found on the web, and hiren's boot cd. nothing gets rid of that password!!

Why do the posts disappear? I just asked if anyone else had an idea, or if Xonar had any other thoughts? Thank you

If you read the forum rules, you'd know why. Posts do not disappear, unless they are deemed as spam or double posts.

This only applies if you are a new user, <5 posts. Instead, they take time to appear (approve by a moderator). Once you reach 5 posts, your posts will no longer have to be approved.

I have deleted the first post now because it was a double post.

Ok, sorry about that, I read the rules but I apparently missed that, sorry again. Do you know of any more things I could try Xonar? I appreciate it.
