How to reset bios password in linovo g560


Sadly, on this board, the CMOS battery is soldered in, not removable. Generally, removing the CMOS battery and waiting a few minutes ought to erase a bios password. Removal would take a trip to a service center. With tech skills, it is possible to erase the CMOS by creating a short. But I think you better forget that. However, if no password has been set, why not look up the procedure to make a password reset disk and try it? Technicians generally have master passwords for different BIOS. Your master password may be winbond. You probably could download and run Speccy to find out your BIOS, by the way.

There is a commercial Windows Reset Key sold for about $20 but I have not researched its validity. I hesitate to mention hacks as such might damage your machine. Bluntly, I don't know what has been done to this machine to get you to this point and don't know if you have tried system restore or made use of any recovery software on the machine. So, pardon the kitchen sink advice.

How can i off the password at bios settings lenovo corei3 desktop


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

I set a bios password and now i forgot it (like most people would). it asks for a password before it loads windows. i would like to get pass the password and into the windows booting system.


Welcome to Fixya

There is no way for you to decipher the motherboard BIOS password. You may try to take out the CMOS battery of the motherboard to reset it the board but it is not 100% guarantee that the password will be wiped out.

If taking out the battery will not fix the problem then you need to send in the computer to lenovo and have them reset the motherboard. They have the right tool reset the board.

Thank you for using Fixya!

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."

My ibm thinkpad r-52 is locked with bios password.how can i remove that .i dont know the password.plz help me mohitagrawal08@gmail.com


Please note that Thinkpad stores the password in a special security chip which is accessed during boot time.

The only option I know to reset BIOS password in a Thinkpad is to disassemble the system and then use the steps mentioned in the following link

My Lenovo 3000 G400M Laptop's BIOS password was set automatically and unknowingly. I dont even know what password has been set. I tried a lot to reset it according to my knowledge, but all in vain. Please...


The easiest way to do this is to remove the keyboard and look for the bios battery. Unplug the laptop and remove the normal battery and then remove the bios battery for about 10 mins. Replace the Bios battery, replace the normal battery, plug the laptop back in and the password should be gone.
