If you forgot the biosw password, you need to access to the motherboard, and remove the battery for five seconds.

This will reset the bios password.

Just take out The Battery, wait for a minute, and put it back in. that resets the mainboard to its factory settings.  Dont forget to turn off electricity if you have board connected to power.

Laptop SONY VAIO VPCEB32FM: how to remove BIOS password


The BIOS password is probably the Power On Password.
This method may not work. Remove the BIOS battery for 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS is depleted. Insert the BIOS battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.
If this does nor work then the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work and there is probable no backdoor passwords.
The Sony support maybe able to offer a solution, check the support WEB site..

How do i reset the bios password for my lenovo a310?


User passwords:
Power on
BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.

Hard drive
The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.

Administrative passwords:
Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.

Password Recovery is a feature of Client Security Solution 6.0. This makes it possible for an end user to recover from the problem of "I forgot my Power On Password or Hard Drive Password."

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a


Hi,
When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

How do i reset the bios password



How to recover your forgotten laptop BIOS password? There are 3 methods, each method has its strength and weakness but I am going to talk about the 2 easy methods that works across the board for everyone. Here they are:
Method 1 – Remove BatteryFor desktop user, open up your computer casing and look for the battery. Remove the battery for approximately 5 minutes (maybe longer, depending on the motherboard) and slot it back. By removing the battery and deprive the motherboard’s flash memory of power supply, you are essentially resetting the settings back to default when the existing data in BIOS are cleared.

laptop_battery_desktop_bios_remove_reset.jpgThis method works well for desktop, however this is not practical for laptop user unless the warranty expired long time ago. This method might or not not work, it depends on the type of motherboard.
Method 2 – Reset CMOS With SoftwarePC CMOS Cleaner is the best CMOS password reset software, it works setting the BIOS to the default state or revealing the password.
reset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove.jpgreset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove2.jpgPC CMOS Cleaner is an easy-to-use tool to recover, delete, decode and display the superior passwords stored in BIOS whatever the brand is. Most types of BIOS are supported. It’s an bootable CD that runs on x86 and x86_64 computers. No need to pay expensive fees to experts. It’s a useful tool for users to get their lost BIOS password back, or clean passwords from an old computer bought from others.
  • Support all x86, x86_64 Personal Computers.
  • Support most BIOS, such as: AWARD, AMI, Compaq, Phoenix, Samsung, IBM, Compaq, DTK, Thinkpad, Sony, Toshiba and so on.
  • Display the superior passwords of the BIOS .
  • Remove BIOS password(will set the BIOS to default status, need reset date).
  • Set the BIOS to default state
