Desktop,on the motherboard there's a little silver battery that pops out,by doing this ,it resets your password.
on a laptop,it's on the back of the laptop,unscrew the cover and unplug the cmos battery for 30 seconds and that will reset your passwords.
i hope this solves your problem.

Hi, Try opening your laptop up, Take out the CMOS Battery, leave it for 10 seconds, Make sure there are no AC cords attached, as well as the battery removed.

After making sure that is well, Start hitting your power button to drain all the power up. re insert your CMOS battery, laptop battery. and Charger then turn your pc on. then Congratulations you have refreshed your bios. your computer then should just load as normal.

Remove hdd password


You can change it but not 'remove' it. Simplest is to use '00000' as the default password.
Instructions
1 Shut down your computer.
2 Press the power button on your computer. While it is booting, press F2 repeatedly (do not just hold it down) until you arrive at a system screen showing a series of
options. This screen is called the BIOS Setup.

3 Use the down arrow key on your keyboard to scroll down to "Security" in the left-hand column.
4 Arrow right to display a sub-menu under Security in the left-hand column.
5 Arrow down to "Internal HD PW" in the left-hand column. (That stands for Internal Hard Drive Password.)
6 Delete the old password (if any) and, in the same box, enter a new password of at least four characters in length in the main screen at right.
7 Write the password down and keep it in a safe place.
8 Hit Enter.
9 Hit the Escape button on your keyboard to exit the Internal HD PW menu, then hit Escape again to proceed to the Exit screen of the BIOS Setup.
10 Arrow right to save the changes you made to the password, then hit Enter on your keyboard to exit the BIOS Setup.
11 Restart your computer and use the password you created in the BIOS Setup to gain access to your hard drive.

Fijustu ah530 corei 5 bios password


BIOS on a Fujitsu C-Series LifeBook b> Resetting the BIOS system of a computer can help revitalize the computer's usage. Oftentimes computers are "broken" when they are misconfigured in the BIOS menu of the computer before it boots up. When the settings are improperly selected, the BIOS prevents the computer from working properly. To get the computer back up and running again, the BIOS needs to be reset. The Fujitsu LifeBook C2111 has its BIOS system located on the motherboard beneath the keyboard.

Turn the Fujitsu laptop over with the computer powered off. Remove the AC adapter and push the battery release latch in and pull the laptop battery out of the Fujitsu. Remove the screw holding the hard drive in place and slide the cover off of the laptop. Remove the two screws underneath the cover that holds the hard drive onto its bracket. Slide the hard drive out of the laptop. Turn the computer back over and lay the screen down so that it is parallel to the surface on which the laptop is resting. Remove the small screw above and to the left of the keyboard with the Phillips screwdriver. Push the keyboard toward the screen until it disengages. Fold the keyboard over the screen and rest it there with the keys facing the screen. You will now see the motherboard of the Fujitsu C2111. Locate the small, round lithium-ion battery on the motherboard and remove it. This is the BIOS battery that stores all of the settings and password of the BIOS when the computer loses power. Hold the power button in on the computer to drain the BIOS system and leave the battery out of the laptop for at least 30 minutes. Place the BIOS battery back into the motherboard and reattach the keyboard. Tighten the keyboard screw that you removed earlier, and turn the Fujitsu back over and reattach the hard drive along with the covers for the hard drive and RAM. Push the computer battery back into place and attach the power cable to the computer. Turn the Fujitsu back on and the BIOS menu will be reset.
or b> Start the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots, if the computer is currently off. If already on, restart the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots. The BIOS setup utility will appear. Press the right arrow on the keyboard and scroll over to the "Exit" tab. Press "Enter." A drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down to "Default Settings" using the down arrow key and press "Enter." A dialog box will appear, asking if you are sure you want to load the default settings. Scroll over and select "OK" using the arrow keys and press "Enter." All BIOS settings will reset to the default value. Scroll back to the "Exit" tab using the arrow keys and press "Enter." Scroll down and select "Save Changes and Power Off." Press "Enter." The computer will save the default BIOS settings and power down. Fujitsu Lifebook T Series b> Restart your Fujitsu Lifebook T Series computer. Press "F2" as soon as the computer starts booting. Enter your current BIOS password if prompted. Use your right arrow key to select the "Security" menu. Use your down arrow key to select the password you want to reset. Press "Enter" to select the password. Enter the current password when prompted. Enter your new password or a blank password if you want to clear the password. A blank password resets the BIOS password completely, meaning you do not have to enter a password to enter the BIOS or boot your computer. Press "Enter" to save your password settings.
Repeat the process if you have multiple passwords set. Press "F10" to save all settings and exit the BIOS.

When trying to enter setup, the enter password screen appears


Hello,

You need to reset the cmos password. You need to open the case. On the motherboard look for a set of pins that say PWORD or PWRD. There are normally 3 pins. A jumper should be connected to two of them.

Make sure the power cord is disconnected. If the jumper is on pins 1 and 2, remove the jumper and place it on pins 2 and 3 for about 10 seconds. (Or vice-versa) Then replace the jumper in its original spot. That should allow you to get to the cmos setup.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. You don't give the computer make and model or the motherboard make and model so the instructions above are basic.

What is 1/4 moon symbol on top left of my compaq keyboard ? when i press it seems to put my computer into sleep mode . how do I get my computer started again ?


You are correct. The moon is sleep mode. Closing and opening the lid will often take it out of sleep mode. You might have to "unlock" the keyboard as well by entering a password (just hit return if you haven't entered a password.)

Under power options, you can select what the computer does in sleep mode.

Wireless Keyboard not connecting


I opened up the Logitech Mouse and Keyboard Settings, turned my keyboard off, changed out the batteries and turned it back on. It then detected the Keyboard and asked for a password, I entered in the password, it said it was rebooting it and asked for another password which I entered (both passwords were given to me in the Settings). Now it is working just fine! Not sure if you have tried this but it might work for you.

KRZR k1....


It sounds just like a keyboard lock and you need the code to unlock it. though it should be prompting you,

if you push * and # on the same time your keyboard locked. When you press it again, you unlock your keyboard

Your phone’s four-digit unlock code is
originally set to 1234
The six-digit security
code is originally set to 000000
If you forget your unlock code: At the
Enter Unlock Code prompt, try entering 1234 or the
last four digits of your phone number. If that
doesn’t work, press s and enter your
six-digit security code instead.
If you forget other codes: If you forget your
security code, SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, or
call barring password, contact your service
provider.

hope any of this helps .
