Unable to set BIOS user password

  1. I’ve never had to set the BIOS password, but the kids are growing up and I need to lock access to my PC.

    My Bios has two Password Options: Supervisor and User.

    The Supervisor password was accepted, and before I attempt to change the BIOS settings, the Supervisor password is asked for.

    Then I set the user password.

    However, when I boot up the PC, I am not asked for any password and windows loads as usual.

    What am I missing?

    The BIOS is Award Software International, Inc. F4 HI 07/03/2007

    Thank you very much, Clifford.:)

    Under “Advanced BIOS Features”, there was an option “Password Check”.

    By default that was set to “Setup

    I changed that to “System”, and all systems are go!
