Reset the cmos


This depends on what you're trying to do. If you've changed something in the BIOS itself and it no longer works, but you can't remember the default, enter the BIOS and press <Alt><F>. If you have a password on the BIOS that you can't remember, there is a jumper on the board itself that will clear the password. There is also a jumper to clear the NVRAM, which may help you.

The schematics for the jumpers are here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsT3500/en/SM/a_sysbd.htm

If you've never used a jumper, you're looking for a little plastic bit on the motherboard. If you pull up on this plastic bit, (fingernails are very helpful here) you'll see two gold pins sticking up off the motherboard. This is a jumper. To deactivate the password or clear the NVRAM, remove the appropriate jumper connector (the plastic part) and power up your system for about 10 seconds. Then turn it off, replace the jumper and cross your fingers.

Hope this helps!

Bios boot password on a Toshiba c655-s5049


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that most of us 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 a 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 the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

Where can I find my jumper to reset my bio password on my hp computer?


On the edge of the motherboard - Most jumpers are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility, verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.

By the CMOS battery - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual cmos battery.

By the processor - Some manufactures will place the jumpers by the processor of the computer.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Other visible location - While it is possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

How can I reset password for Bios Phoenix? the problem is that i can't run windows also


Try this, this is called "Backdoor BIOS Passwords" (manufacturers use these passwords for testing and maintenance.)

Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.

OR

Try removing your CMOS Battery. (Note that all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.)
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 in your system.

OR

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. Power on your machine

Forgot password for bios setting


For this issue if you need to fix it with your self you need to follow the instruction from me. First you need to open your unit. Locate where the CMOS battery located.

Dell GX110, como remover en password del BIOS (CMOS)????????? ya removi la bateria!


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open you're case & find the 3.0v battery on the board. Use a flat tip screw driver & remove the battery. Wait about 15 seconds & replace the battery. Close the case & plug the power cord back in. Boot the PC. You will need to enter the bios to reset the clock settings & any other settings you may have made. Thats it.
