B110 Desktop...the bios password has me locked out. How can I reset to the factory bios password. How do I set a new bios password when I don't know the current one????


Hi

You have to open up your laptop notebook by removing all the screws at the back of your computer but make sure you remove the battery and then remove the CMOS battery at the motherboard and return again to reset the BIOS setting and will remove the password.

I hope it helps you.

Setting the BIOS Password

There are two main varieties of BIOS used in Toshiba notebooks, each with its own unique method for setting and disabling a password. First, determine which type of BIOS is used in your notebook model, as follows:

Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button.

Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key. If the message "Check System and press the F1 key" appears, then follow the "Esc key BIOS" procedure, below.

If the computer ignores the Esc key when it's powered-on, or if you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup utility, follow the "F2 key BIOS" procedure, below.

Almost all Toshiba notebook computers will respond to either the Esc key or the F2 key when they're first powered-on. The Toshiba HWSetup program (found in the Windows Control Panel) may also be used for setting and disabling the BIOS password. See the HWSetup procedure, below.

To set a BIOS password, start the BIOS Setup program and enter a new password into the password field, per the detailed instructions below. Once a BIOS password is set, it will be necessary to enter it whenever the computer is started, restarted or reset. Choose a password that you can reliably recall, or make note of it in a secure location. If you forget the BIOS password, only a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider can remove it.

ESC key BIOS Password setting procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key, until the message "Check system. Then press (F1) key" appears on the screen.

2. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

3. Using the arrow keys or the tab key, move to the Password field, and highlight NOT REGISTERED.

4. Press the spacebar, and then enter a new password at the "Password = " prompt. Press the Enter key.

5. Enter the password again when the Setup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The Password field will change to REGISTERED.

6. Press the End key and then the Y key to save changes and exit the BIOS Setup program.

F2 key BIOS Password setting procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key.

2. The BIOS setup program should appear. If Windows starts, shut down the computer and try step 1 again.

3. Use the arrow keys to move to the Security tab.

4. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password". (This 'User Password' is equivalent to what is otherwise called, in this document, a 'BIOS Password'.)
(It may be necessary to set a supervisor password before setting a user password. A Supervisor Password may be thought of as a backup mechanism -- if a User Password is forgotten, the Supervisor Password will allow access to the computer. The next section describes how to set a Supervisor Password.)

5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Type in a new password at the "Password = " prompt, and then press the Enter key.

6. Enter the password again when the Setup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The password field will now change to indicate that a password has been entered.

7. Optionally, set the Password on Boot feature to 'Enable'. Otherwise the computer may not prompt for the password at startup.

8. Press the F10 key to save changes and exit the BIOS Setup program.

HWSetup BIOS Password setting procedure (This method works for most notebook models.)

1. In Windows, click Start, then Control Panel (or Start, then Settings, then Control Panel).

2. In Control Panel, click on the icon for HWSetup or Toshiba Hardware Setup.

(If neither of these icons are present, download and install the Toshiba utilities for your model from the Service and Support Website, or use the appropriate BIOS Setup procedure above.)

3. Click on the Password tab.

4. Click to select Registered. Alternately, there may be a choice for User or Supervisor Password. Select one or the other

5. Enter a new password at the "Password = " prompt, and press the Enter key.

6. Enter the password again when the HWSetup program prompts for it, and press Enter. The Password field will now say REGISTERED or SET.

7. Optionally, set the Password on Boot feature to 'Enable'. Otherwise the computer may not prompt for the password at startup.

8. Close the HWSetup program.

Removing the BIOS Password

Follow one of the procedures below to remove a BIOS Password. See the section 'Setting the BIOS Password', above, to determine which type of BIOS your computer has. Once the password is removed, the computer will no longer prompt for a password when it's started. Removing the BIOS Password requires you to enter it first. If you cannot recall the BIOS Password, only a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider can remove it.

ESC Key BIOS Password removing procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the Esc key. The computer will display the "Password = " prompt.

2. Enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The computer will display "Valid password entered, system is now starting up. Check system. Then press (F1) key"

3. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

4. Using the arrow keys or the tab key, move to the password field, and highlight REGISTERED.

5. Press the spacebar, enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The Password field will change to NOT REGISTERED.

F2 Key BIOS Password removing procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key. The unit will display the "Password = " prompt.

2. Enter the correct password, press the Enter key. (You may need to press the F2 key after you hit the enter key.)

3. The BIOS setup program will appear.

4. Using the arrow keys, move to the Security tab, and to Set User Password.

5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Enter the current password at the Old Password prompt, and press Enter. At the New Password prompt, press Enter (without typing anything into the password field). At the Confirm Password prompt, press Enter again (without typing anything into the password field). The password should now be removed.

6. Press F10 to save and exit from the BIOS Setup program.

HWsetup BIOS Password removing procedure (This method works for most notebook models.)

1. In Windows, click Start, then Control Panel (or Start, then Settings, then Control Panel).

2. In Control Panel, click on the icon for HWSetup or Toshiba Hardware Setup.

(If neither of these icons are present, download and install the Toshiba utilities for your model from the Service and Support Website, or use the appropriate BIOS Setup procedure above.)

3. Click on the Password tab.

4. Click to select Registered. Alternately, there may be a choice for User or Supervisor Password. Select one or the other.

5. Enter the current password at the "Password = " prompt, press the Enter key. If the HWSetup app prompts for the current password and then twice for the new password, simply press the enter key three times after entering the current password. By pressing the Enter key only, you are selecting no password.

6. HWSetup should now show that the password is Unregistered, which means there is no password set.

7. Close the HWSetup program.

I have acer aspire 4315.i have a problem in winows.i want enter bios set up,asks a password.but i dont knw the psasword.how can i remove the bios password


What you need to do is Flash the BIOS.

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4315.html

With this utility you should be able to FLASH BIOS to factory default and enter BIOS without password. Be extremely careful to follow the steps exactly, because one false move and your system could be rendered useless.

Hope this helps

I have a HP G6000 lap top & need a bios password / reset?


google for remove bios paswoord
Resetting the BIOS Password using Software Every system must store the BIOS password information somewhere. If you are able to access the machine after it has been booted successfully, you may be able to view the BIOS password. You must know the memory address where the BIOS password is stored, and the format in which the BIOS password is stored. Or, you must have a program that knows these things.
You can write your own program to read the BIOS password from the CMOS memory on a PC by writing the address of the byte of CMOS memory that you wish to read in port 0x370, and then reading the contents of port 0x371.
!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.
CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:
  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI

I lost my BIOS password


You will have to contact Gateway (or the manufacturer of the laptop) and ask them what you need to do to remove the bios password. Without an exact model number no one here can provide you with a 3rd party solution.

Most laptops made in the last few years require you to send the laptop back to the manufacturer and provide proof you are the origional owner of the laptop to remove a BIOS password as many BIOS passwords set up to prevent data theft.
