how can i remove advent ert2250 bios password


Hello there,
To remove the bios password from you advent laptop, Power off the computer and make sure that it is unplugged. Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure. Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery and leave it out for about 120 seconds then put a piece of wire or metal between the battery contacts. This will remove the bios password stored.. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. (See Warnings) Set the battery back into place and power on the computer. The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine. You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it. You may reset the BIOS password to something else by going into the BIOS configuration and setting a new User Password (The Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS, NOT the computer!)
All the best. Elect_Comp

The basic input/output system (BIOS) is essential computer motherboard firmware. Using the BIOS menu, you can configure many system settings--for instance, the computer boot sequence--and also configure hardware, such as optical (CD/DVD) drives or a monitor. An optional password protects BIOS from unauthorized access. However, you may need to remove the BIOS password to facilitate the configuration of your system.

how i can remove Bios password from Toshiba


There is NO way that it can be fixed OTHER than returning it to the manufacturers or agent. They have proprietory Software Challenge Codes and this will do the job. However they cahrge for this usually around $125. Also one must provide proof of purchace and ownership. You can also find places online too, however they also cost.

i have a advent 7113 laptop and i have done everthing to get passed the bios password with no luck been at it for a week now and i think i am going to hit my son over the head with his laptop can any one help out there before i go nuts thanks


The BIOS Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask your son for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you computer is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.
