Hi All,
I was wondering if having a BIOS password is a good security measure, as far as stolen laptops goes?
Any info will be welcome,
Thanks

Bios passwords can be reset by simply removing the bios battery. A better option is to password lock the desktop... but even that will be wiped once the theif reinstalls the os.
Nothing you can really do once the laptop gets stolen.
