You need to clear your CMOS settings, where the password is stored. It is volatile memory, but there is a small hidden battery that keeps the memory stored. You need to temporary remove it.Remove the small plastic cover on the bottom where your RAM/Hard drive reside. It should be a single screw. There will be a small 3v Lithium Ion coin battery in there. Remove that battery, remove your laptop battery, and unplug your power adapter. Leave it all unplugged fora couple minutes, put it back together, and your password will be gone.

A direct way to blank out a BIOS password would be to remove the CMOS battery for a bit; I'm not sure where that would be in that particular laptop but commonly it is a small round flat battery

I have a sony pcg-grt360 laptop, and I need to install XP from external cd-rom - I can not get into the bios to make the changes to select boot sequence - I need to remove the existing password


Unfortunately this laptop uses the restrictive style of BIOS password. Meaning if you can remove the cmos battery there is a good chance it will not forget the password.

Unfortunately the only way to truly clear it is to replace the whole motherboard which is a nightmare, especially with an older machine like this.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the BIOS password / remember it? I assume that is what is going on, correct?

Please let me know, just reply to my answer here...

Thanks
Tim

Asking for password on boot up password not known,after three attempts massage is system halted


Sounds to me as if there is a power on password set, can you get into the bios? try pressing <delete> or F2, if it asks for a password then you will need one to access the CMOS, within the CMOS is an Administrator password as well as a power on or user password, those have to be cleared in order to boot or the proper password entered at start up in order to continue the boot process

Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100


Hoping you are using some version of windows OS. Go to safe mode... press the power button to boot and while booting keep pressing F8 which will allow you to go to safe mode and reboot the machine if you are able to sucessfully able to go to safe mode. Now boot to normal mode as usual boot. If you still notice BSOD(blue screen of death) then once more go to safe mode and uninstall the new softwares if you have installed any on your laptop recently like graphics device driver or audio driver so on.... if you are not sure of new softwares installed.. use system restore method in safe mode to restore the system to older date it should resolve your problem. system restore tool of windows will be in start-> program -> accesories-> system tools-> system restore.

Cannot boot Dell inspiron 6000, need drivers and utilities CD.


This is a system board/bios problem relating to the date/time settings and the admin password to access the bios settings.
Try hitting F2 on boot and see if you can get into the bios to set the time/date.

there are some utilities which can remove system passwords but a goo method is to remove all power to the laptop INCLUDING the cmos battery deep inside the machine.

Go here fro a manual

Reset bios password


If you are not afraid to open the box, the simple fix would be to remove the cpu battery(looks like a quarter) for about 30 seconds and replace, then boot up. At that point it will ask for information such as date and time, but then you can access the bios

Laptop again lol


Is this a Windows password after the machine boots, or is this a bios or power on password before booting to the windows screen? If it's a Windows password, try running a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If it's a bios password get back to me and I'll send you a couple of links. In order to clear a bios password you'll need to Contact Dell support. The links will help only if it's a bios password. Let me know.
