SL510 freezes at BIOS

2013-03-05, 2:23 AM
Hi all, I have seen similar issues on the forum but not one like this. Here is my situation when powering on I get the ERROR 0199: System Security – Security password retry count exceeded. It immediately goes into BIOS and then the computer freezes. My keyboard does not respond so I can not save/edit any bios settings and am stuck. I have tried using a USB keyboard but this also does not work. I have also tried a different hard drive but the same issue happens. And help would be appreciated!
