Re: Boot order

Sounds like someone has put a BIOS Boot password on your laptop. It's either that or a Disk Access password (which is also done through the BIOS).

If neither you nor your Roommate (trying to play tricks on you) have set a BIOS level password, you may need to contact Tech Support for ways to reset the BIOS.

If you have an HP or Compaq Laptop you can search for your exact model on HP's site. Here's a sample: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00502970/c00502970.pdf
