The most common way that we 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 the Cmos 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 cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
hope this helps you

I have had ares ultra for several years and had my pc worked on and it lost it and dont know how to get it back forgot password


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

Wait at least a half hour before trying again. That is a common lock out period, though not used in home situations. Ask if someone changed it. The options are not good.

I cannot log on to computer, dont know password


try starting in safe mode(press power button like turning on normally then tapping F8 when the screen shows dell on it). choose safe mode. put administrator in as thu username and leave password blank. hopefully it works. if it does get you into the system i think you can go to control panel and then user accounts. you should be able to see the other user names there and you can delete passwords too. then you can restart and log on normally hopefully

Am trap .


Is it asking for the user name and password at windows or at the bios?

If its windows then just boot the computer go into windows in safe mode, keep pressing the f8 ke during boot and you will have the option to go in in safe mode, when you get to the logon screen click on the administrator account, go into control panel, user accounts and just delete the password for the account name. Re-boot and you are in.

If that doesnt solve it let me know
