WinXP BIOS Password?
okay, I'm new to messing around with software, so please have patience with my question.....I recently had to enter BIOS to verify that I could boot from cd-rom, and while in BIOS I am fairly sure I only changed one thing: Setting the password. Afterwards my computer slowed waaaaaay down to where now it takes twice as long and twice as much processing to do anything (boot up, run apps, etc...) I didn't think that this could've caused the problem, but it was the only thing I changed. The only other changes made recently was the installation/uninstallation of PartitionMagic (decided to wait to install my new Linux). AFTER I had installed the PartitionMagic(and bootmagic) it was running fine, but all of a sudden.....anyways does anyone have any ideas? Could I have screwed up my registry in any way by uninstalling PartitionMagic(I had to do this manually, but was very careful)? Could a reg mechanic or first aid progream help? Please help, I'm worried about my baby!!!
