Optiplex 745 PC / Administration Password in BIOS System

  • My Optiplex 745 PC System allows in the BIOS a System Password and a Administrator Password. I was successful to create the System Password. With the Administrator Password I'm having problems. Whenever I create the Administrator Password in the BIOS System, the password disappears after rebooting. My question : whatfor is the Administrator Password in the BIOS System ? how can I solve my problem and successfully create a Administrator Password in the BIOS System ? Thank you. James
  • jg_cdm,


    The administrator password locks the BIOS, so that no unauthorised changes can be made in it. To see if it is set, you need to look for a lock symbol in the top right corner of each setup screen.

    The only suggestion I could make if you are having trouble setting this passwrod would be to reset the NVRAM for the system. Please refer to the documentation for your system to determine how to do this.
