The only way to clear a BIOS password is to open the case and look for the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Small battery looks like a watch battery. Take it out, wait five minutes, put it back in and start. Password will be cleared.

Disabled primary master password status


You can only disable the master password within the BIOS. Select Master Password when in BIOS, type the password and then change it to a blank window. That will remove the password.

Hi!bios problem.ask for password.when type i cant du nothing anyway.shortly cant boot from usb or external dvd row.whay?


When you type a bios password, you won't see anything because this is a security measure; people looking over your shoulder wont know how many digits your password is. There is a way to bypass it, though. Disconnect the battery, unplug it, then open it up. There should be a small round battery called the CMOS battery somewhere in there. Pull that out. Then plug your computer in and boot it up without the CMOS battery. It should say password disabled. Turn it off, disconnect it, put it back together, and you're good to go.

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a


Hi,
When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

Password BIOS prompt comes up and do not know what to do.


Type the BIOS password, then press the Enter key.

If you are the Owner of the laptop, and did Not setup a BIOS password, then try this:
1.Type Password, press the Enter key
Or,
2.Type Administrator, and press the Enter key.
Or,
3.Press the Enter key, and do not type anything.

If this is not your laptop, and the owner set up a BIOS password, you are locked out.
