Reset Bios Passwprd



You set a BIOS password on your computer. The next time you start up the computer, you forgot what it was. How do you reset it?

1. Open up the computer to expose the motherboard. For normal desktop computers
,you will have to slide the case cover or side door off. For Laptops,remove the keyboard by unscrewing the screws securing it to the unit.
2. Look for a battery on the main board. It will either look like a large watch battery or like half of a AA.
3. Remove the battery for about 10 seconds.
4. Place the battery back on the motherboard.
Ifthis doesn’t work, it is likely that you will need to look in thedocumentation for your motherboard to learn the jumper that will resetthe BIOS password.

It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
