SOURCE: Bios Password Reset

The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.

Hope this is some assistance!

SOURCE: password for entring my bios

BIOS Passwords Basic settings on your computer such as how many and what kinds of disk drives you have which one are enabled and which are disabled and which ones are used for booting are held in a CMOS chip on the mother board. A tiny battery keeps this chip always running so that whenever you turn your computer off, it still remembers its instructions. A common method of entering the BIOS is pressing the Del key at Bootup other common methods are Ctrl +Alt +Esc and Ctrl + Esc. Most computers have a BIOS which can be configured to ask for a password as soon as the computer is switched on. If the Ask Password option is enabled then as soon as the PC is switched on a Dialog box welcomes you and asks you for the password. You cannot override this and there is no way of disabling this because to enter the BIOS you need to know the BIOS password. So what do you do? Disable it. Now to Disable the BIOS password you need to enter the BIOS. But as soon as you enter the BIOS the BIOS asks for a password. Now the most common method of overriding this password prompt is by trying out the default BIOS passwords. Some common passwords are: Lkwpeter j262 AWARD_SW AWARD_PW Biostar Many BIOS also have their default password that can be tried. "j262" opens most versions of Award BIOS it works about 80% of the time. "AWARD_SW" and "AWARD_PW" work on some computers as well, but much less often. In some BIOS shift+s y x z also works. The best way to find out the default passwords of various BIOS is to search at http://astalavista.box.sk which is the best search engine for security related matter Well if the default passwords did not work them get ready for some serious Hacking stuff. Now as the default BIOS password did not work we will try to reset the BIOS to its default settings so that it asks for no password at all. So to do following: First you have to open the computer and then look for a round lithium battery, it probably looks like a silver coin. So remove the battery and after 30 seconds or so put it back. Some computers may also require you to reset the jumper, so look for a 3-pin jumper and reset it. For example, on most machines you will find a three-pin device with pins one and two jumpered. If you move the jumper to pins two and three and leave it there for over five seconds, it will reset the CMOS. When you boot the machine some BIOS may give an error saying that the BIOS was reset or tampered with, but that is not such a big problem

SOURCE: Lost Admin or system password for Dell Vostro 1700.

First off is there two passwords one for bios one for gaining access to the O/s ?

If its a system startup password basically you need to take the battery out for a minute and replace ( Easier to do on desktops )
or Flash the bios can't promise that would work or be easy on a laptop either. Would have to google that.

SOURCE: I forgot BIOS password for SONY PCG-GRX520

The best way for the Sony is to remove the cmos battery for at least 30 minutes. Remove the main laptop battery and leave it out. Make sure the power adapter is not attached. The cmos battery can be reached after removing the keyboard and is attached to the motherboard vis a small cable. If you have a "jumper" that come equipped on hard drives to jump the pins on the back, you can "short" the pin connections on the cmos battery socket, power the laptop up using the ac adapter and letting the computer go through the bootup process. When this happens power the laptop back down, take the jumper off and replace the cmos battery. Power back on with just the ac adapter and boot the computer. If the laptop still askes for a bios password just hit enter and it should allow you to log in. Once in go into the bios and reset the date and time. Once that is done power down and replace the main battery. Reboot the laptop and let Windows load.

Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

How to reset the bios password on sony vaio vpcee42fx laptop


Just as you can set a password for your email account or online banking, it is also possible to set a computer password in the BIOS. The BIOS, or basic input/output system, is the first computer code that the computer runs when starting up. The computer's motherboard stores this password and requires you to enter it before the computer will load the operating system. Setting up a BIOS password is one method of discouraging unauthorized access but, unlike the Internet, there are no hints or recovery options for forgotten BIOS passwords. Instead, you must reset your motherboard BIOS to clear the password.

Shut down the Sony Vaio PC. Unplug the power cable and any other cords attached to the computer. Grip the left side panel and pull it away to reveal the internal components. There may be a lever near the cover you must press down or a set of screws on the cover you need to remove with a Phillips screwdriver. The CMOS battery looks similar to a quarter. Pry out the CMOS battery gently with a flathead screwdriver. Look for the battery on the motherboard. It is similar in shape and color to an American quarter. Remove the battery, wait 30 minutes, then replace it. Unplugging the power source and removing the CMOS battery for half an hour will reset all BIOS settings to the factory default, including the BIOS password. Since by default computers do not have a BIOS password, this removes the password. Replace the system cover and cords. If you wish to add a password to the computer to replace the old one, you must go into the BIOS and enter it.

Password on Bios of sony vaio VPCEB46FG


You don't need to put a bios password on it.

If the bios already has a password on it then it will not let you boot the computer without you putting it in. It sounds like you are already booted up and into the bios, if that is true don't set a bios password.

I have lost the bios password... any body help me to recover without opening case


This is a tricky one because the BIOS password is made to be the hardest password on a computer to break. Some manufacturers allow you to enter BIOS without the BIOS password but most do not. Here are some troubleshooting methods starting with the easiest and moving on to the hardest.

To enter BIOS hit the F2 key repeatedly as the computer boots up. You should enter BIOS after the first loading screen. If this does not send you into BIOS, try the ESC, DEL, and F1 keys. Once in BIOS find where you can set the password and reset it or enter a blank password as your new password.

If you can't access BIOS or are prompted for a password once you enter BIOS, try the following methods to flush the BIOS password cache:
1. Contact your manufacturer's support and ask if they have a backdoor BIOS password that they will allow you to use. This works to allow you to enter that password instead of your own and easily fixes the whole problem, but not all companies will tell you their password. You can also do a google search for your manufacturer's backdoor BIOS password since many of them have been discovered.
2. Send your laptop to your manufacturer to have them reset the password manually, although this takes an undisclosed amount of time and they will often make you pay a fee if you are not under warranty.
3. If you don't want to pay your manufacturer, open your laptop and locate the motherboard. On the motherboard there is a CMOS battery, if you don't know where this is use your PC manual. Remove the CMOS battery for an hour and then place it back on the motherboard. This should reset the password. After this turn on your computer and enter BIOS. This will reset all your BIOS settings so it may take a few minutes to open. After it is open, just exit BIOS and everything should be working properly. Just be very careful when opening the laptop and handling the CMOS battery because you can severely damage your laptop if you don't handle it properly.

Thanks for using FixYa and good luck!
