Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I have a compaq presaro 2500 mod 2850us forgot passwords can it be cleared to get in to bios?
If you have forgotten your password and it is stored in the BIOS, then you can reset the BIOS to the factory default state by removing the BIOS battery, wait for over 1/2 hour for the BIOS to discharge and wipe its contents, then reconnect the battery. You will need to reconfigure the BIOS before Windows opens.
I do not know this model, but if the password is stored in an EEPROM chip then it is near impossble to reset it without knowing the actual password. It would be difficult to remove, if you know a friendly hacker with a piece of hardware that can read the contents of the EEPROM chip and then identify the password, so he can tell you what it is.
Best of luck.
