It is very rare for such an error to occur. Some motherboards have a unique switch which links directly from the case to a number of jumper pins on the motherboard. This is usually a reed switch or it could be just a simple spring switch.

What the switch does is to check if the case has been opened. If that is the case, the BIOS will lock up the system, a process which needs an administrator password so that it can be reset once again.

In the event that your case lacks a fitting that is meant for the intrusion switch or you do not want to use that feature at all, then you will need to check the instruction manual of the motherboard to see how disabling the feature is done. That will depend on the mobo being used.

Dear user,

In some motherboards there is a switch which hooks up to the casing. Or vice versa

First check if your casing is open. If so, please close it . The error will disappear

If not, you can simply disable this by accessing your BIOS.

* Instructions easily be found on the user manual.

Refer to it so you can have a better understanding about the product you use

Thank you
