You can go to BIOS setting and reset to factory default.

or use this to software if you forgot the BIOS password

This removes bios password from any Dell machine. unrar it and Burn the Boot CD, and then Boot to it.

Hi, the cmos battery is not under the keyboard, take the side off your PC and on the motherboard, (the first thing you should see) there should be a 3 volt battery (about the size of a 20 cent coin), remove to reset cmos. If you need any more help locating the motherboard just ask, Cheers

How can i restore my compaq cq70 laptop bback to its original settings,no password


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip.

So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop -

If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Hope this helps

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode


When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.

Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.

Bios password crack


Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

Cmos setting not saved


Look at the CMOS reset jumper, located near the battery:
86f0a83.gif
For normal operation there should be a cap shorting pins 1 and 2.
Set the jumper correctly, make sure it really shorts these two pins (once I've seen a jumper cap that didn't have the metal connector inside, only plastic), replace the battery and it should keep the CMOS settings.

My computer wont reboot in any mode


If it wont boot because you played with the BIOS settings, try resetting the CMOS. Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, open the PC, look for the CMOS reset jumper(it is near the CMOS battery or just look at your manual for a clearer location. It has three pins). At default the jumper is placed at pins 1 and 2. Move it to pins 2 and 3. Wait for a minute. Then place it back to pins 1 and 2. Or you could take off the the CMOS battery and wait for maybe 5 minutes.
