that might have been funny at the time, but really isn't

Hi,

The only thing I can come up with is to clear the bios by shorting the mainboard at the "Bios Clear" point.

Other than that have a loo at this website: http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/Clear+BIOS+Password,+All+tricks+!

Good page, interesting reading if your in to Tech.

Thanks

SOURCE: Gateway MX6030 bios/boot password reset

How long did you leave the battery out?
To discharge the BIOS you need to short out the battery contacts, or disconnect the battery for 1/2+ hours.
If this does not work the it is near impossible to remove because the password would be stored on an EEPROM chip.
Check with Gateway, they might suggest a motherboard replacement just like IBM.

I locked my computer and i forgot the password


Assuming you mean the 'BIOS Password', turn off & UNPLUG the power cable. Then open the case, find the little silver battery 'coin cell' battery (type CR2032) = on the moherboard, make a note which way round it is & and remove it for a coiple of miniutes.
After putting it back in, when you next power up, you will have to eneter the current time & date into the BIOS..

How do you unlock a computer


What's locked on it? There are three passwords that can be set on a computer. 1) Bios Password, 2) Hard Drive Password & 3) Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password. Which one are you talking about?

If you're talking about the Hard Drive Password, then 99% of the time it's a stolen laptop. If you're smart enough to set the hard drive password, you're smart enough to remember it. The Hard Drive Password is set the by original owner to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. Sometimes the original turns on the Hard Drive Password remotely once the laptop is stolen. The only way to break the code is for the original owner to put the password in. The stolen laptop is useless to the thieves without the Hard Drive Password.

Hi, if you are unable to get the bios master password from HP Support then use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_HP-Compaq_Bios.php This bios unlocking service can calculate the bios master password just like HP Support that will delete any current set bios password. For $20 unlockbiosrecovery.com will calculate you bios master password and email it to you within a couple hours and they guarantee it to work or you money is refunded. I use them for all laptop bios master passwords on laptops I repair when the bios is locked with an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password.

DELL XPS M140 MXC051 LAPTOP BIOS PASSWORD


Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

The BIOS being locked by a password will not stop the laptop starting up, it will just stop acess to the BIOS to change any settings so there is more here than we know.

Can you acess the boot sequence on start up and is the HDD listed?

Friend Locked out of her laptop.


What make/model of computer?  What operating system? What BIOS type/version/revision?

 

There IS a way to reset it without losing the data on the drive. It sounds like he has set up a password in the system BIOS or either password protected an entire volume in Win 200x/Vista.

 

If he has set a BIOS pw, you can remove the batteries and jumper the CMOS reset pin for a few seconds...IF you can get to it.  If you can determine the BIOS name/version, I can probably put you onto a boot diskette that will clear the BIOS.

 

For 3 bucks, I'll send the boyfriend a virus!!!   lol
