Fijustu ah530 corei 5 bios password


BIOS on a Fujitsu C-Series LifeBook b> Resetting the BIOS system of a computer can help revitalize the computer's usage. Oftentimes computers are "broken" when they are misconfigured in the BIOS menu of the computer before it boots up. When the settings are improperly selected, the BIOS prevents the computer from working properly. To get the computer back up and running again, the BIOS needs to be reset. The Fujitsu LifeBook C2111 has its BIOS system located on the motherboard beneath the keyboard.

Turn the Fujitsu laptop over with the computer powered off. Remove the AC adapter and push the battery release latch in and pull the laptop battery out of the Fujitsu. Remove the screw holding the hard drive in place and slide the cover off of the laptop. Remove the two screws underneath the cover that holds the hard drive onto its bracket. Slide the hard drive out of the laptop. Turn the computer back over and lay the screen down so that it is parallel to the surface on which the laptop is resting. Remove the small screw above and to the left of the keyboard with the Phillips screwdriver. Push the keyboard toward the screen until it disengages. Fold the keyboard over the screen and rest it there with the keys facing the screen. You will now see the motherboard of the Fujitsu C2111. Locate the small, round lithium-ion battery on the motherboard and remove it. This is the BIOS battery that stores all of the settings and password of the BIOS when the computer loses power. Hold the power button in on the computer to drain the BIOS system and leave the battery out of the laptop for at least 30 minutes. Place the BIOS battery back into the motherboard and reattach the keyboard. Tighten the keyboard screw that you removed earlier, and turn the Fujitsu back over and reattach the hard drive along with the covers for the hard drive and RAM. Push the computer battery back into place and attach the power cable to the computer. Turn the Fujitsu back on and the BIOS menu will be reset.
or b> Start the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots, if the computer is currently off. If already on, restart the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots. The BIOS setup utility will appear. Press the right arrow on the keyboard and scroll over to the "Exit" tab. Press "Enter." A drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down to "Default Settings" using the down arrow key and press "Enter." A dialog box will appear, asking if you are sure you want to load the default settings. Scroll over and select "OK" using the arrow keys and press "Enter." All BIOS settings will reset to the default value. Scroll back to the "Exit" tab using the arrow keys and press "Enter." Scroll down and select "Save Changes and Power Off." Press "Enter." The computer will save the default BIOS settings and power down. Fujitsu Lifebook T Series b> Restart your Fujitsu Lifebook T Series computer. Press "F2" as soon as the computer starts booting. Enter your current BIOS password if prompted. Use your right arrow key to select the "Security" menu. Use your down arrow key to select the password you want to reset. Press "Enter" to select the password. Enter the current password when prompted. Enter your new password or a blank password if you want to clear the password. A blank password resets the BIOS password completely, meaning you do not have to enter a password to enter the BIOS or boot your computer. Press "Enter" to save your password settings.
Repeat the process if you have multiple passwords set. Press "F10" to save all settings and exit the BIOS.

How to reset the bios password on sony vaio vpcee42fx laptop


Just as you can set a password for your email account or online banking, it is also possible to set a computer password in the BIOS. The BIOS, or basic input/output system, is the first computer code that the computer runs when starting up. The computer's motherboard stores this password and requires you to enter it before the computer will load the operating system. Setting up a BIOS password is one method of discouraging unauthorized access but, unlike the Internet, there are no hints or recovery options for forgotten BIOS passwords. Instead, you must reset your motherboard BIOS to clear the password.

Shut down the Sony Vaio PC. Unplug the power cable and any other cords attached to the computer. Grip the left side panel and pull it away to reveal the internal components. There may be a lever near the cover you must press down or a set of screws on the cover you need to remove with a Phillips screwdriver. The CMOS battery looks similar to a quarter. Pry out the CMOS battery gently with a flathead screwdriver. Look for the battery on the motherboard. It is similar in shape and color to an American quarter. Remove the battery, wait 30 minutes, then replace it. Unplugging the power source and removing the CMOS battery for half an hour will reset all BIOS settings to the factory default, including the BIOS password. Since by default computers do not have a BIOS password, this removes the password. Replace the system cover and cords. If you wish to add a password to the computer to replace the old one, you must go into the BIOS and enter it.

EliteBook 8530p bios password


Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten HP BIOS password. One is forcing BIOS/CMOS to reset itself to its stored defaults by removing all power to it. The other is to use a program to either locate or identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely.
And the most easiest and convenient method for erasing dynamic BIOS/CMOS settings is to remove battery directly from the motherboard. It applies to most motherboards besides HP Elitebook BIOS. At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.

How to reset BIOS password with SpareKey?
1. Before forgot BIOS password, you have set answers to three predetermined personal identification questions.
Write down the answers to these questions and put them in a safe place, away from the computer, so that you can always access them.

2. When you cannot remember the password to access the BIOS on your computer, turn on the computer and immediately press the ESC key to display the Startup Menu. And then press the F7 key.

3. HP SpareKey wizard pops up and prompts you for the answers to the three personal identification questions. If you successfully answer the questions, you are granted access and you can reset the password.
If you do not answer the questions correctly in the three attempts, you will be locked out of your computer. And then you must contact HP for assistance.

Note: HP SpareKey cannot help you recover a Windows 7 or Vista administrator account password. It is intended solely to recover system-level passwords.

I boiught used computer but cannot start up bvecause of passcode


you need a password reset utility. these can be found on this site
You want to get a bootable cd that will allow you to reset the administrator password so that you can get into your os.

If the password comes up on a bios screen you need to open up the computer and disconnect the round bios battery and then reboot the computer. Remember to reinstall it later.

If you mean the BIOS password that comes up in the first few screens, then you will have to Disable the password in the BIOS utility. To open the BIOS utility, press F2 during the logo screen.
Then go to the Password screen and disable it.
To reset the windows logon password, you will need a boot disc such as "UBCD4Win" . Boot from the disc and use the password recovery utility on the disc to reset the pass word or to create another user without a password to start the computer from.
