Is it possible Disable BIOS on Dell and HP hardware? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry if this is the wrong forum.  I wish my users not to have access to the BIOS.  Is there any way to hide or disable it?  Thanks in advance!

  • This is not the right forum, but it's a quick answer: most BIOS interfaces allow you to set a password (look under the security settings). The user may be able to see the settings, but can't change them without the password. If they are really intent on making changes, though, and have access to the hardware, they can open the machine and clear the BIOS on the motherboard. (The steps to clear it depend on the specific motherboard.) It's not perfect but it will at least slow them down.

    Good luck!
