Desktop
Power off the computer and make sure that it is unplugged.
Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure.

Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery.
CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. (See Warnings)
Set the battery back into place and power on the computer.
The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine.
You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it. You may reset the BIOS password to something else by going into the BIOS configuration and setting a new User Password (The Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS, NOT the computer!)


Laptop
Remember that laptops can be trickier, especially if it's a newer model. If it has a security chip on the motherboard forget about it. You either have to physically remove the chip or contact the mfg for the "master" password. If you can boot up off of a cd or floppy try any of these methods:Create a Win98SE bootable media "or anything that lets you boot into MS-DOS" and boot off of it.
When the A:\> prompt appears type debug and press enter.
You will then only see a "-".
Type o 70 2E "include the spaces" and press Enter.
Type o 71 ff "include the spaces" and press Enter.
Type q and press Enter.
Here are a list of common mfg backdoor passwords: 
AWARD BIOS 
AWARD SW, AWARD_SW, Award SW, AWARD PW, _award, awkward, J64, j256, j262, j332, j322, 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598, HLT, SER, SKY_FOX, aLLy, aLLY, Condo, CONCAT, TTPTHA, aPAf, HLT, KDD, ZBAAACA, ZAAADA, ZJAAADC, djonet, %øåñòü ïpîáåëîâ%, %äåâÿòü ïpîáåëîâ%
AMI BIOS 
AMI, A.M.I., AMI SW, AMI_SW, BIOS, PASSWORD, HEWITT RAND, Oder

Other passwords you may try (for AMI/AWARD or other BIOSes) - LKWPETER, lkwpeter, BIOSTAR, biostar, BIOSSTAR, biosstar, ALFAROME, Syxz, Wodj gvs

How to disable HDD Bios password in dell Optiplex 990?


The easy way to clear the bios password and reset bios is to take out the bios battery and start computer for about 10 seconds and then turn it back off and replace the battery. When you turn it back on you may need to go into the bios and reset everything the way you want it, and don't forget to rest the time and date.

You are welcome

Unlock my asus from bios


If you mean you have to enter a password to get into Bios then do the following....

Simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

As far as I am aware, if you have a Windows password on your computer after startup, you can do nothing in Bios or CMOS to get rid of it. The best solution is to re-install Windows after formatting the Hard Disk. Of course you will lose all of your data then.

Dell Vostro 1500 Password Help


There are many types of passwords for Dells. Is the password set for Windows (on the welcome screen). This would be the easiest, you could simply restore the laptop and reinstall Windows if you dont mind losing all your files. If the files are important then there is software available that will allow you to reset the Windows password, such as 'Any password recovery'. If the password you set is through your BIOS, then the easiest way around this is to go on eBay, search Dell password, the seller will simply send you the master password using the servicetag you provide him, will cost you around 5-10$ max.

I forget bios password for HP DL160 G6 server, how do i reset the password ?


  1. Shutdown your server.
  2. Go inside the server, and remove the CMOS battery. It should look like this.

3. Be sure to power down your server before taking it out. Be aware that once you take this out the system will forget a lot of it's time settings. This is the battery that keeps the computer's memory of time, date, and BIOS password when it's shutdown.

Power-on password on hp 8510p


Power On Password & Hard Disk Password
With your next laptop you should protect it with a Power On Password AND put a password on your hard disk. This will stop anyone from using your laptop and if they move the hard disk from your laptop to another laptop they cannot access the data on your hard disk with the hard disk password.
BUT you need to write down or remember these passwords; if you lose or forget them you cannot gain access to your laptop.
There are no backdoor passwords to remove these passwords.
To set up or change these passwords, go to the BIOS configuration - then security configuration. http://techtips.salon.com/reset-hp-laptop-bios-password-1476.html

How can I by pass Bios Password for Acer brand?


BIOS passwords are used to add some extra security to computers. You can either set a password to prevent access to BIOS settings or to prevent PC from booting.
But sometimes this extra security might become a pain when you forget the BIOS password or someone changes your system BIOS password intentionally.
But there is no need to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:
  • By removing CMOS battery
  • By using motherboard jumper
  • By using MS DOS command
  • By using software
  • By using Backdoor BIOS password

Forget my bios password notebook hp 6720s


Removing the RTC battery and leaving it uninstalled for 5 or more minutes causes all passwords and CMOS settings to be cleared. BIOS password can be removed by temporarily disconnecting/ removing the RTC/ CMOS (Coin-cell) battery from the motherboard. Disconnect the coin-cell battery from the system board and it will reset the BIOS to its default setting and the password would be gone.
Please Refer to Page 77 of the REPAIR MANUAL HP 6720S.
If you can't do it yourself, you may seek help from local laptop service professional.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

How do I set a password so that others can't access my computer.


You can set a BIOS password, which means hitting DEL or F2 or F10 when you first start the PC, then finding which line will do it. Write it down, because if you forget it, you're screwed, literally.
Or, if you use Windows, just set a User Password and not let anyone in.The BIOS PW is bet but you cannot lose the password, or you are in big trouble.
