Yes.. That's a point, but I'm afraid this has gotten way off topic

wtf

your harddrive doesnt have a bios or mobo screws

and if you meant your motherboard then A. if you delete the bios your motherboard is trash and B. your using the wrong size screws
no no no no no as in the hard drive was $150 and now the system is sitting on my desk having overcome blah blah blah. It meant that I'd finished moving it. Entire system: Approx. $1300

AND the bios was cleared, I wasn't specific enough. As in I had to reenter the system time and boot drive priority and junk. Two seperate things, I kind of mushed them together. I've never been very specific about how I type things. And the mobo screws were in the mobo, nothing to do with the hd.


AND I still wasn't clear enough. I already had everything running in a difft case, this is the new case that I'm moving the stuff into. The mobo screws were stripped and wouldn't come OUT of the ORIGINAL standoffs in the OLD case. So much so that I had to take a hammer to it (the other side of the case with the mobo plate behind it to get the standoffs out so I could get the screws out of them easier.

Well if I'm copying a DVD then I can't do anything else. Plus I can brag about having 3 disc drives in my comp to the people at my school who barely know what a disc drive is. I'm, sadly, the only person at my school that knows how to build a computer.

It's for convenience, not security. When you scan your finger it puts in the username and password for you so you don't have to remember it, so it's more secure than IE or Firefox remembering it for you, but you could still just put in a usename and password.
