Problem: You do not have access to change the settings in BIOS? . Have bought a...


There are two passwords in BIOS. One is start up password, the other isBIOS setting password. If you have forgotten the start up password thatmeans you cannot open computer at all. Then the first method is theonly thing you can do. Other methods can use to clear setting password.
==①:Motherboard Battery Discharge==
The common way toreset start up password is discharge Motherboard Battery. Most of thecurrent motherboard BIOS is using the button batteries to provideelectric power.That means if there is no electricity, the informationit contains will be lost. When it’s on power again, BIOS will set backto its original state, of course, there will be no BIOS passwords. Butyou will lose your setting at the same time.
What we need to dois to power off computer, open the computer box, and then unplug thepower plug of the computer to make sure that it is no electricity atall. Then locate the white silver button battery on the motherboard.Remove the battery carefully. Perhaps 30 seconds later, put back thebattery.
After put back the computer box then power on, thesystem will prompt “CMOS Checksum Error-Defaults Loaded”. That meansCMOS errors detected during inspections, had been included in thesystem default, BIOS password cracking success!
On somemotherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making itdifficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative.Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clearthe BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you willknow where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on themotherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to bethe case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper.This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannotlocate this jumper, you might short both of the points where thebattery connects to the motherboard.
==② : Backdoor BIOS Password==
Eachmotherboard manufacturer has set a backdoor password in order tofacilitate the provision of technical support. The backdoor password isa BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOSpassword to. These passwords are typically used for testing andmaintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwordsfrom time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Reported AMIbackdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW,BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.

Freetech PosterieI
Will iwill

Packard Bell bell9
QDI QDI
Siemens SKY_FOX
SOYO SY_MB
TMC BIGO
ToshibaToshiba
Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password,this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the realbackdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored atF000:EC60.
==③: Software Crack==
There are a lotsoftwares to test systems or start up password, but they need to run onWindows. So it is only used to reset BIOS setting password.
!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
Ifall else fails, you might be going to lose some money for technician.But they will use these same methods, try hard by yourself.

I want to remove a ASUS Eeepc 4g bios password which i forgot please guide me thanks.


http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_ASUS_Bios.php can calculate a bios master password for your ASUS notebook for $20 and they guarantee it to work. The bios master password will clear the currently set bios password, giving you full access to bios setup. I repair laptops and I use them when I get a laptop with an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password and they have always worked for me.

How to Change/Reset a BIOS password Posted on 30 December 2008
Tags: Tech News, Tutorials If you are a normal computer user who has forgot his BIOS password and you are unable to access to your BIOS, then you need a simple way to change your BIOS. Its not that hard because you just need a simple trick to reset your BIOS password.
Open your CPU cabinet after switching OFF the power and then try to locate the CPU battery which can be found very easily. Once you locate your battery you need to remove it once and restart your PC without the battery.

cmos-battery-check.png Note : Once you remove your battery from the mother board, you will find that all your time settings in your computer would be lost, and some softwares may stop working which are based on your computer time.

You need to shut down your PC again and now add back the battery which will enable you the time saving feature and also reset your BIOS password.

Administrator Password for BIOS lost


Nope, if you do not have the bios password, the only way to reset it is by accessing the motherboard, removing case and keyboard, and either removing Cmos coin shaped battery for one second, or bridgeing the Cmos reset jumper (that interrupts contact to battery, same as removing battery).
