Remove the button battery on the motherboard and let it sit for a while. This resets the CMOS, and accordingly the BIOS. WARNING: this will screw up the motherboard's settings, and thus everything will have to be reset. Also, since it is a laptop, the battery may be difficult to get access to.

What BIOS is used, specifically? AMI, Award, Phoenix?
Sometimes a backdoor password can be used, or certain software to find/remove the password, such as !BIOS

Bypass bios setup password hp pavillion


Step 1:
All computer BIOS chips have a backdoor master password designed to be used in the event that you can't remember the password you set yourself or by a tech support agent who is fixing your machine. These passwords are set at the factory level and do not change, no matter what model of computer you own. You will use this password to bypass the currently set password in the event that you need to access your HP BIOS but cannot.

Turn on your HP computer. Strike the "F2" keyboard key. Your HP computer will attempt to load your BIOS. You will be prompted to enter your current password. Type "merlin" into the password prompt and hit "Enter." This is the backdoor BIOS password for HP brand computers. You will now bypass the user defined password and the BIOS screen will load as normal.

How to Bypass BIOS Passwords


BIOS passwords can add an extra layer of security for desktop and laptop computers. They are used to either prevent a user from changing the BIOS settings or to prevent the PC from booting without a password. Unfortunately, BIOS passwords can also be a liability if a user forgets their password, or changes the password to intentionally lock out the corporate IT department. Sending the unit back to the manufacturer to have the BIOS reset can be expensive and is usually not covered in the warranty. Never fear, all is not lost. There are a few known backdoors and other tricks of the trade that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS v Before attempting to bypass the BIOS password on a computer, please take a minute to contact the hardware manufacturer support staff directly and ask for their recommended methods of bypassing the BIOS security. In the event the manufacturer cannot (or will not) help you, there are a number of methods that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS password yourself. They include:
Using a manufacturers backdoor password to access the BIOS
Use password cracking software
Reset the CMOS using the jumpers or solder beads.
Removing the CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes
Overloading the keyboard buffer
Using a professional service
Please remember that most BIOS passwords do not protect the hard drive, so if you need to recover the data, simply remove the hard drive and install it in an identical system, or configure it as a slave drive in an existing system. The exception to this are laptops, especially IBM Thinkpads, which silently lock the hard drive if the supervisor password is enabled. If the supervisor password is reset without resetting the and hard drive as well, you will be unable to access the data on the drive.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Backdoor passwords
Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords

Superuser password as soon as you turn it on and dont know what it is it was a gift


laptop security is extra tight due to ease of theft. if password is in the BIOS it will have to be cleared at a repair shop. if it's based in the gard drive, replacing same will eliminate it but you'll have a blank hard drive. No operating system. since it was a gift, just ask the previous owner what is the password

How do I reset my password on m panasonic toughbook cf29


The boot-up passwords are normally set by the computer's BIOS. So a reset of the BIOS is normally performed in these cases. It requires opening your laptop's case, and removing not only the Big battery, but the tiny dime-sized battery on the motherboard. It's used to maintain BIOS settings and the Date/Time. Removing this battery will cause the custom settings to be wiped, and putting the battery back in will cause the default factory settings to be restored.

If you're talking about your windows password, it requires using software to crack your copy of windows. Which violates this site's rules.

Password retreval or bypass


f you need to bypass the BIOS password - assuming that this is a desktop pc, you need to remove either the BIOS battery from the motherboard or switch the bios reset jumper to another position for a while and then back, I can help you more with that if you first clarify is this a bios password or not and then is the computer a laptop or a desktop pc.
