No need to reset your BIOS to enter BIOS editing mode.
You'll need a keyboard that plugs directly into the keyboard port, not a USB keyboard. The USB keyboard does not function until later in the boot process and therefore doesn't send the DEL keypress signals when needed at initial boot-up.
Using a direct-plug keyboard, keep tapping the DEL key while your computer is booting up and it should catch the keypress at the appropriate time and enter BIOS editing mode. This way you don't have to get a single keystroke timed precisely to open the BIOS editor. If the computer starts beeping at you, don't worry about that. It's just telling you that you've filled up the keyboard buffer with DEL keypresses which is the intent.
Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.

CMOS error


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

Diagnosis: The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is probably faulty. It could also be another component on the motherboard.

You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent hardware or software change


If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.

If you don't know the settings you should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time

Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date.

Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.

Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps you

Hi,

Go to your bios again set it to default and then restart it.

If nothing happens you need to use your operating system disc to fix that.

Set your first boot sequence to CD first.

Hpe that helps you out!

Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios password to default on an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop? I have an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop. It is booting but it cant go beyond bios boot and i cant enter setup as it is...


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Problem on start up


there should be a cmos reset jumper on the motherboard somewhere close to the bios chip. Given you didn't mention the actual model and brand of mobo i cannot be certain. Also you can remove the little watch battery for a few minutes and it too should reset the bios.

Acer Aspire T180 - Booting Problem


You can attempt to remove the bios chip and reinstall it or replace it with another. They are available. Do a google  search.  It has been my experience that if one cannot get into the bios that the Mother board is shot and I then replace it, not gambling on replacing the bios chip.
