bios password reset
« on: May 23, 2015, 04:23:59 PM »
I picked up two Reel Touch machines not too long ago they both came from an Indian casino in Canada. The issue I am having is they apparently set a bios password and I am unable to enter the bios to save the settings. Does anyone know how to clear the board so I can get to the bios?
They were originally bios 1 and I could not get into the bios .
I then swapped out the chip for bios 2 thinking this would allow me in. This did not work nor did removing the coin battery. If I can't save the settings I'm screwed. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Rich

All motherboards have a CMOS clear. Look for what is pictured below. It may or may not say CMOS clear. On the DFI's in the reel touch I think it's the one next to the battery. Pull the jumper off and put it on the other end of the 3 pins, turn it on for a few seconds then off and put it back where it was. you will have to set up the M/B from scratch but if you pick the default setting you should be OK.
If it ain't broke.....Stop trying to fix it.

Tried that Lin although I can't remember if I turned it on with the jumper moved. I'll try again when I get home. Should I do it with or without the battery installed?
Thanks

You have to turn it on. That's what clears the Cmos

Many M/B's will also clear if you leave the battery out for about 15 min. Myself I like 30 to be sure.

Thanks Lin
You must pull the battery, then switch the jumper pins next to the battery holder, then turn the unit on.
Installed the battery and returned the jumper to the original position and password protection was gone. :thank_you:
 
Note if you don't pull the battery with the jumper changed it does not clear the CMOS.
