Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
I have a CF-53. While I was in the BIOS, I had loaded the default BIOS settings. After rebooting, I realized my BIOS was now password protected!! WTH?? I called Panasonic Tech Support at 800-527-8675. The tech was VERY knowledgable, and when I explained the situation to him, he said that didn't seem normal and that Panasonic doesn't normally password protect the BIOS. On what seemed purely like a hunch, he suggested typing in "password" - Voila! It worked!!
Thanks Panasonic Dude!!!

The only way to remove the bios password is by removing the CMOS chip and read or swap it with one from another Panasonic CF-53 motherboard. Here is the location of that chip. It is usually has a bit of green or purple paint on it.

Bios password cannot be removed by just reseating the cmos battery. You might need to short the board to reset the bios password. Please take not that this is a critical job you need technical expertise in doing this.
