I always recommend popping out the CMOS battery and then putting it back in. This resets all of the settings in the BIOS including the password. In the case of a laptop it can be a bit of work to open it, locate the battery and perform this but it is much less risky than uses the software that is available to crack the BIOS password and then remove it.

This site gives some useful software options for resetting the BIOS password:

Otherwise this is a diagram of the inside of the laptop once you remove the screws from the underside, remove the keyboard and touchpad:

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

SOURCE: forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.

    Lenovo laptop HDD locked/Sata port 0 locked, insydeh20 bios locked, can't go to boot selection(it brings me to the HDD prompt password again). help!

    Sorry, you're hosed. If you forgot your HDD password the only thing you can do is replace the drive and rebuild your S110. There is no way to remove or reset it without using the original password in the original motherboard. Period.
    If you're misinterpreting the screen information and it happens to be the bios user password that's forgotten it is possible to have an authorized Lenovo repair center reset it with adequate proof of ownership. Lenovo themselves will not do it. If it's the SVP password for the bios the only solution is to replace the motherboard. Period.

    Having passwords that can be reset like in the old days just by jumpering 2 wires defeats the purpose of having a password in the first place.

    Remove password supervisor

    You want to get it into safe mode, this can be done through spamming one of the F keys while its booting up, Either F5 or F8 most commonly. Once done enter in safe mode and there will be an ADMIN login with no password. Simply log in using that account and then go into account settings and delete the other profile.

    Toshiba 1070 bios satellite password

    This is supposed to be impossible, but there is a way to do it. Unscrew the case, locate the CMOS backup battery, remove it. Leave it out for a minute or so as to allow the capacitors enough time to discharge. Restore the CMOS battery to it's original position, screw the case back together, and power on the computer. Your BIOS password should be removed. Keep in mind that this will also restore all BIOS settings to factory defaults.

    Remove to your BIOS password download the CmosPwd, and follow the mention below instruction.
    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, and run CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

    3) C: [Enter] cd CMOSPWD [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 LAPTOPS!

    In my laptop lenovo g550 , i forget bios supervisior password, so kindly tell me how willremove biose supervisior password. i can open my laptop , i have remove bios battery but same issue,

    Are you the one who set up the BIOS password? If not, unfortunately, there's no way for us to retrieved the password. The only way you can reset the password to default settings is to reseat the CMOS battery on the motherboard, its a circular thing that looks like a battery of a watch,sometimes a pin hold it, just detached it then wait for at least 30 minutes then connect it back again,
    Note: Before you reseat the CMOS battery,make sure that everything is unplugged on the computer, like AC adapter,battery and all external devices...
    Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    A Windows log on password is removable. Just google it for a software solution. A BIOS [power on password] is not removable. You will have to contact Lenovo support with proof of ownership for help.
