Remove the cmos battery from the motherboard for about 5 seconds, replace & reboot. All should be reset to factory settings. Hope this helps.

Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.

Ive got a E system and it needs a bypass password this wasnt entered in to the system when it was first brought please help


Does the laptop ask for a password as soon as you power it on?? If so it is your bios master password to bypass any current password that is set. http://unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Fujitsu_Bios.php can supply you with the bios master password you need for only $20 and they guarantee it to work or your money back. I do laptop repair and I use them when I need a bios password reset or a hard drive password reset.

Just need to know how to unlock it. I purchased it and it has a password need. can you tell me how to open/bypass this?


What model is it?
Where or when exactly is it asking for the password?
It could either be a BIOS, hard drive or Windows password. Can you be more specific?

Most, if not all, Compaq Presario notebooks have a recovery function that can be accessed by pressing EITHER F10 or F11 (depending on the model) when you power the machine up.

This will revert the computer back to factory settings, deleting all files currently on it, including Windows passwords. If you have files on it & it's asking for a Windows password, there are other ways to bypass it without deleting files.

It should work unless it's a BIOS or hard drive password that's preventing you from using it. Should that be the case, the password may have been put on there at the store where it was bought or the previous owner, if applicable. You may have to contact them if the recovery fails or cannot be accessed because of said password.

Procedure for setting a passcode for laptop so that nobody can open it.


To prevent and secure anyone from accessing your laptop, you can place a Power On Password on your laptop. This Power On Password comes up as soon as you switch on your laptop and won't allow access any access unless the correct password is entered. There are no backdoor passwords to bypass the Power On password to get into your laptop.
You can also place a hard disk password on your laptop and this will prevent anyone from accessing the data on your hard disk, even if they install the hard disk into another computer. There are no backdoor password to bypass the hard disk password.
You may also enable a BIOS password to prevent anyone from changing your BIOS settings.
These passwords are configured in the laptop's BIOS under Security settings.
Once you create these passwords, I suggest you write down these passwords and place them in a safe place should you need need them.

BIOS restore


To reset the BIOS to factory settings read the information from this link, disregard the first point as that applies only to bypassing the BIOS password, the other 3 solutions not only will reset the BIOS password but will also bring the BIOS to factory settings.

My laptop IBM 2652 is locked .A padlock appears at top left of screen.I would appreciate help in unlocking and returning it to factory settings.My user guide is lost.


The Thinkpad is locked with a Power On Password and its purpose is to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop..
This password is set from the BIOS configuration.
Removing the BIOS battery to set the BIOS back to the factory default will not remove the password because it is stored on an EEPROM chip on the motherboard.
There is a way to remove this password, but it requires electronic knowledge and soldering skills. Please click on this link and follow my instructions.

I can't remember the password to unlock my Lenova laptop. Is there any way to bypass?


hi dbcaloha, one way of bypassing the password is to power drain the pc.

Turn off the pc, unplug cables, remove the battery , press and hold the power button for 5 seconds, replug cables and reinsert battery.

Turn on the pc and check if it bypass the password, otherwise your system needs to perform factory reset...

Hope this helps...
