MOBO Wants BIOS Admin Password At Each Boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The password I set to protect access to the UEFI settings is now being prompted at every computer startup, not just when I hit Del to go into the bios.

 

This is happening after I updated my bios to fix another issue (see last topic). Using a Gigabyte Z390M Gaming motherboard and couldn't find anything relevant in the settings

 


Double check everything, I am usually wrong.

In the BIOS go to the "BIOS" tab and click on "Security Option". This is where the password would have been set. And is also where you can disable it everytime the machine boots.

It can be a pain depending on how many customizations you make, but anytime I get a slow BIOS, I set it the the defaults (usually an option), then reset my options.
