Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


select safe mode with command prompt


Then type at the C:\> prompt: type

    Your detailed solution much appreciated. However, problem remains. Pressing F8 repeatedly as suggested fails to get into Safe Mode. Black screen message reads:

  • pttde7 Dec 03, 2012

    Type the password and...press to leave password security enabled. press to disable password security. Enter password: _ Tapping F12 repeatedly during start-up, brings up this on the screen: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A02, followed by the Phoenix Technologies and Dell Corporation copyright information. Dell System Dimension 8100, Keyboard failure. This is followed by: Type the passwordand ...--press to leave password security enabled. --press to disable password security. Enter password: _ Attempts to recover/reset BIOS password have all failed! Floppy and CD drives are okay but can't run Dell diagnostic disc or Dell Installed Programs CD until I get past the BIOS password hang-up. Excuse the two-part message!

How do I run a set up program


Generally, one enters the BIOS Setup screen by pressing either F2 or Del. There is usually a message on the bottom of the first boot screen that indicates what button is correct for that model.

Looking further into the details that you have given, it seems that your CMOS battery has died, so you will need to replace that. (This is what is causing the "Time of Day Not Set" message most likely.) You can get the appropriate battery at Radio Shack (if nowhere else) for about $5 or $6.

Hey Brian,
Follow the information below to hopefully, resolve this error message.
Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
floppy (if present)
CD/DVDROM
Hard disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered (Press R to start the Recovery Console), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually 1).

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
chkdsk /r (there is a space before the /)
Enter

Thank You,

Typical Usage for DOS and all Windows users ¦

1) Identify your BIOS manufacturer (usually displayed at boot-up)

2) Start in DOS, or start a DOS session in Windows 95/98/ME.
For Windows NT or Windows 2000 boot from a DOS or Windows 95/98 boot
disk (you can find boot disks at http://www.AnswersThatWork.com), and run
CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

3) C: [Enter]
CD\CMOS_Pwd [Enter]

4) Type CMOSPWD at the DOS prompt and press Enter.

5) CMOSPWD will display a list of possibilities. Use the possibilities
itemised against your BIOS manufacturer.
Remember :

a) For AWARD BIOSes, use the Numeric Keypad (with NumLock ON).
b) AWARD 4.50PG BIOS always accepts "AWARD_SW", or "d8on",
or "589589".
c) Old Phoenix BIOSes will accept "phoenix".

6) If the standard method does not work, then try to kill
the CMOS password with CMOSPWD /K (and press Enter),
and then see if you can get into the CMOS without a password.
If you can, you successfully "killed" the old CMOS password.
DO NOT KILL THE CMOS on IBM ThinkPad 765 laptops.

7) If you cannot kill the CMOS with CMOSPWD, then try the following,
all done from the DOS prompt of real DOS or of a DOS session :

DEBUG [Enter]
O 70 2E [Enter]
O 71 0 [Enter]
Q [Enter]

(The first character of each line above MUST be a letter, so whenever
you see "O", read it as the letter "O" and not the digit ZERO, "0").

'General Usage (List of commands) '

cmospwd [/d]
cmospwd [/d] /[rlw] cmos_backup_file restore/load/write
cmospwd /k kill cmos
cmospwd /m[01]* execute selected module

/d to dump cmos in ascii and scan code
/m0010011 to execute module 3,6 and 7

Keyboard:
/kfr French AZERTY
/kde German QWERTY
default is US QWERTY

Platforms
- Dos-Windows version
Well, ... it works!

- Linux && BSD version
Users can work on cmos backup but they need root priviledge to
use ioperm function to have full access to cmos.

- Windows NT, W2K, XP
Users can work on cmos backup. To work on cmos memory, gwiopm need to be
installed and running.
gwiopm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode process
(ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess kernel functions.

1- You need administrator priviledges to install this driver
"instdrv gwiopm c:\tmp\gwiopm.sys"
(To remove the driver, run "instdrv gwiopm remove".)
2- Start the service if needed with "net start gwiopm"
3- Run "Cmospwd_nt /w cmos_backup"
4- Run "Cmospwd /l cmos_backup"

'Laptops '

On laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard,
you need an eeprom programmer (electronic device) to retrieve it.

You can get/buy eeprom programmer in electronic shops or labs, you need
another PC to use it.
You can desolder the eeprom with hot air or you can try to "clip" the
eeprom. With the eeprom programmer, backup your eeprom and run
"cmospwd /d /l eeprom_backup". If you don't see the password, you can try
to fill the eeprom with zero or FF, don't forget the reset the cmos.

'Toshiba '
-
Differents passwords give the same 32-bit CRC, so CmosPwd can only give one
of them.
To reset the password of an old Toshiba, you can use KeyDisk. (cf my web page)
If this doesn't work, you can try to build the Toshiba Parallell loopback.
To make a simple device that you connect to your parallell port, a lot of
Toshiba computers remove the password when you boot it up.
The device, named "loopback" by some, could be made out of any
parallell wire with 25pins connectors (db25). You should connect
these pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, 18-25.

A db25 looks like:
1 13
_______
\_____/
14 25

---------------------------------------------------

Divers
- Award 4.50PG
There is an universal password AWARD_SW.
(d8on, 589589 ... works too)
- Award
Differents passwords give the same 32-bit CRC, so CmosPwd can only give one
of them. Use the numeric keypad.

Scenic Mobil 700, Josef Benda: "cmospwd /k" works! Phoenix Note BIOS v4.0
Scenic Mobile 510AGP, Bernd: "cmospwd /k" works! Phoenix 4.0 R6 Version 3F31 dated 9.2.2000

What to do if you can't use cmospwd to clear your cmos ?
You can use debug to reset cmos CRC stored at 0x2E-0x2F
debug
-o 70 2E
-o 71 0
-q



What to do if cmospwd don't work on your PC ?

Try to clear password with cmospwd /k.
If cmospwd /k doesn't work, password is stored in an EEPROM. Try to find a
reset jumper on your motherboard or contact your PC vendor.
If it works, I can try to discover how passwords are encrypted.
I need to know what Bios you used and
some cmos memory backup with their passwords. (cmospwd /w backupfile)
For passwords, choose
- some 1 and 2-letter passwords

- BBBBBBC

How do I reset my password that I forgot on my Dell Vostro 220


if you forgot the password for tyour winows log in theres no real easy way to change the password. one way is to get a password recovery tool. you have to be carefull because there is a alot of scams out here. in my experience heres the top five i suggest
  1. Stellar Phoenix Password Recovery - Simple startup utility resets a forgotten admin or users' password using a familiar Windows-like program interface instead of command-line.
  2. Password Kit - Top rated version of Passware's Password recovery app, supports Windows Vista and RAID/SCSI/SATA drives.
  3. Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - A great boot CD/Floppy that can reset the local administrator's password.
  4. Openwall's John the Ripper - Good boot floppy with cracking capabilities.
  5. EBCD - Emergency Boot CD - Bootable CD, intended for system recovery in the case of software or hardware faults
  6. the next step i could recommend if you do not want to do this is to try a system restore. if you have the system cds that come with the computer you can put them in and when starting up computer you should see setup or system restore in bottom right or left corner. it will say hit f12 or f2 you are going to want to go into there and boot from cd. once you boot from c you will be able to do the system restore and set computer back to factory defaults.

Using a Backdoor BIOS Password

Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.

Or

Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password
Download (Keydisk) http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

Can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.
