    Default BIOS password

    Hi yesterday I just bought a new Asrock mobo H61M-VS. Work perfectly. But now I have problems getting into the UEFI bios to check settings due to password protection. Is there a standard password I should find somewhere?
    Thanks

    New board bought yday..and its now pword protected? What like youve forgotten pword already..


    The "old" method of getting past bios password protection was holding down f8 or cntrl+f8 .
    Newer boards or that one in particular..dunno.

    The (does) F8 does not seem to work with this board. Everytime I get in the BIOS i need to enter this password i do not know. Any suggestions?

    In the BIOS i want to change boot order to USB 1st. Are there ways to achieve this without going into the BIOS?

    Thanks

    Clear CMOS or remove the battery for 30s to discharge the capacitors. Cut any power to the PSU before doing that.
