Forgot BIOS Passcode for computer

I have a computer and I need to take it down from the system that is on it now. The system that it originally had was Vista Basic now it has Vista Premium. In order to fix this I know I need to get to the BIOS screen but I can not for the life of me remember the passcode. Do you have any ideas on how to fix this?

Easiest way to remove bios password is to unplug power to actual computer case open it and on circuit board (motherboard) remove batterie (about the size of a 10 cent piece) carefully from board, wait a minute then put back in, this will reset the bios and remove password.......take care to not try to touch anything else except the battery

I have a dell inspiron code 21m6kk1 and i forgot the opening password how do i open it


Jimmy blash,
If it is a system password that your computer needs you will either have to format and reinstall Windows or search the internet for software that will help you recover your password. Dell does not have any generic passwords to help you get back into Windows. If it is a bios password that you forgot you will need to contact Dell Support at 1-800-624-9896bsat4ube4gblqiaaaaasuvork5cyii= and have them help you reset your bios password.

Thank You,

Unable to open bios on e-machine to change logging order


Boy everyone needs to be more specific on their questions! If you mean you want to get into the BIOS but cannot because you forgot the password, I have never seen any program that will retrieve it for any computer. But not all is lost, you can reset it to factory defaults if your comfortable with electronics, you can open your computer and remove the CMOS BIOS battery and leave it out for 15 minutes (some computers will need a little more or a little less time but 15 minutes will usually be long enough for most of them) Replace the battery and close your computer. You should now have the original factory settings for your computer and the password should be gone.
NOTE: only do this if you know how you had all of the other settings, because it will revert to original factory settings and all BIOS modifications you had done will also be lost as well! Also removing the CMOS BIOS battery is not something that could be done by anyone, you must have a good understanding of electronics to properly do this action.

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

I have my Ipad apple 10 i forgot my passcode..how can i a open it?


If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.

I forgot my passcode on my i4


contact apple they can provide you with a master code if it the bios password. otherwise search the net. I am quite sure that noone is going to tell you how to find the password or get around it as it presents legal liability if the i4 is not yours.

Hi,i set password on my BIOS but now after a long time i forgot my pass word..now i want to change it or remove it but dont know how to do that..it would be nice if u guys help me..thanks.


PC users can use two way to protect our computer,one is BIOS password, the another is WINDOWS password, since password can be cracked or forgot easily, when this happen,the password recovery/remover solution is also different.
assuming its a BIOS password, you need a bios/cmos password recovery tool from http://www.biospasswordrecovery.com
assuming its a windows password, you may need a windows password recovery tool from

Forgot the system password. This not the administrator password for the vista side but the bios system. Is thee a way to reset it or will I need to reinstall the original software.


You can either short the "Clear CMOS" jumper, or pop the CMOS battery out. Everything will reset back to factory state - the only effect on windows ill be the date change.

Accidentaly turned on the "power down when system fan not recognized" in the bios. my system does not have a system fan so it shuts down before i can get to the bios to change setting. how can this be...


Hello there:
what i would do is open the case and locate the cmos battery and remove it also remove the cord that connects the motherboard to the powersupply and then wait about 4 minutes now press the power button and the reset button if it has one this will help release any esd that may have built up. after this has been completed reconnect the powersupply to the motherboard and reinstall the cmos battery and reboot the computer now it should give you a error and tell you that you need to go into bios and correct the time and date go ahead and go into bios and do this and now you will be able to solve your other problem from here but it should be corrected anyway ok?
best regards michael
