    How is it password protected? What operating system are you running? (If it is encrypted) can you still "see" the file names or acess the encrypted files? What kind of hard disk are you using (internal/external)? Does it have a lockout feature after a certain number of failed tries? And for the sake of Pete, before we EVEN start, did you write it down somewhere?

How to Clear BIOS Password


Method 1 of 3: Using the Password Breaker

  • 1. Using another computer, load up your Internet browser. Go to this website, and write down the code shown on the locked computer.

  • 2. Pay the Small fee, and then enter the code you have written down. A few codes will be provided, so try them all until you find the one that works.
This also works for locked HDD drives, so make sure you take a look.
  • 3. You're computer is now unlocked! Keep the backup password handy, this will be invaluable if you locked out of you're pc again.
Method 2 of 3: Reset Jumpers to Clear a CMOS Password
http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-bus3iqmg0jrasilho1abbg4j-3-0.jpg
  • 1. Unplug the computer and remove all peripheral connections like monitors and printers.
http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-bus3iqmg0jrasilho1abbg4j-3-2.jpg
  • 2. Reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD). Wear a wrist strap to eliminate ESD, or make sure 1 hand is holding a metal piece while you are working inside the computer. Wear rubber soled shoes, and stand on an ESD mat if possible.
http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-bus3iqmg0jrasilho1abbg4j-3-5.jpg
  • 3. Open the computer. Locate the CMOS jumper. The jumper will usually consist of 3 pins, though on the rare occasion, 2 pins (requiring you to supply the jumper itself). This often is labeled with "clear," "cmos," "password" or some abbreviation that indicates it is the password jumper. It is usually located near the CMOS battery, or processor. In laptops, it is often a dipswitch at the bottom of the laptop. Consult your motherboard documentation to find the location if you are unsure of where it is located.

  • 4. Make note of which pins the jumper covers. Remove the jumper. Reinstall it so that it covers the pin that is currently not covered. For example, if it covers pins 2 and 3, change it so that it covers pins 1 and 2.
http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-bus3iqmg0jrasilho1abbg4j-3-14.jpg
  • 5. Reassemble the computer, and re-connect the power. Turn on the computer. Check to see that the password is cleared.

  • 6. Turn off the computer. Disconnect the power cord, and open it. Change the jumper settings back to the original position.
Method 3 of 3: Other Methods to Clear a BIOS Password
Clear BIOS Password Step 7.jpg
  • 1. Search online for generic CMOS passwords. Older computers sometimes have a generic password set by the manufacturer. To find one, search for the name of your manufacturer. Keep in mind that the computer password may have changed or no longer is in use.

  • 2. Download a utility to bypass the computer password. These can be found online and loaded with a CD or floppy disk.
Clear BIOS Password Step 9.jpg
  • 3. Take out the CMOS battery. Leave it out for longer than 5 minutes, and then reseat it. This will clear all BIOS settings, including the password. Keep in mind that you will have to reset the BIOS date, time and other settings.
Clear BIOS Password Step 10.jpg
  • 4. Contact the manufacturer. Find information about the motherboard, and call either the motherboard or computer manufacturer. They can tell you whether there is a CMOS default password or solder beads that must be jumped.

I have a IDE HDD from my old Medion computer, which I want to install as Master in a newer HP dx5150MT computer. Having installed it; and, having tried and exhaused ALL options within BIOS & CMOS


You have to change the boot information in the MBR (master boot record) on the hard discs. To do this, you need either the install or update CD/DVD for your version of Windows (make sure that the SP matches). Note: if the drive from your original Medion computer has the drivers (motherboard and other hardware) from that computer, you need to reinstall the OS on to that drive. Then fix the boot record as you install the OS. Usually uninstalling the motherboard drivers is recommended before moving a hard drive to a new system.

You need to boot from the optical drive. Either set the BIOS to check the optical drive first or press F12 repeatedly as the computer starts up. (I usually have to restart and try again to access the change boot order menu.) Once you are in the Windows, you need to access the recovery console and the command prompt. You need to have the recovery program identify all the Windows OS options on the discs. If you have XP, first use the map command to identify the discs. Then use the command fixboot (devicename) and fixmbr (devicename) to put a new boot partition on the appropriate drive and then fix the MBR.

With Vista or Win7, the commands are slightly different. Use the Bootrec command. First use Bootrec /ScanOS to identify the versions of Windows on the drives. Next use the /RebuildBCD switch to list the available OS versions. Next use the /fixboot (if you want the Vista or Win7 OS to boot first) and /fixMBR switches.

Any hard drive repair utility CD for Windows will likely have a program to repair the MBR. These may be easier to use with some combinations of OS versions.)

I hope this helps.

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.


Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

Still have trouble, post it here.
