Remove password from hardrive in bios


Before your computer loads your operating system, it starts by running the BIOS program, which is extremely important because of its various options.

You can even set a password on your hard drive so that nobody can use your laptop computer without your password.

Once you put in the password into your hard drive, you can only remove it by accessing the BIOS system and deleting the password completely from the memory of your computer.

Save all of your important files on an external hard drive or similar storage device.
This is a precaution to avoid losing all of your files when making changes to the BIOS.

Then, restart your computer.
Wait for your computer's operating system to ask you to access the BIOS menu.

This may be at different times, depending on the manufacturer of your computer.
It can ask you when the manufacturer's logo comes up, or on a separate screen indicating for you to click the "F2" button on your keyboard to start.

Access the BIOS menu by clicking the key or combination of keys that you are informed to click. This information can be found in your computer's manual, but it changes between different companies.

Commonly used keys for this process are "F10", "F2" and "Delete."
Go to the BIOS option that contains your hard disk drive password.

The option that will lead you to this password varies immensely due to different laptop models, but it may appear as something such as "Advanced" or "Security."


Look for the option for changing the password, which should say "User Password," and then click "Enter." Put in the existing password and then click "Enter."

Do not enter any password into the blank fields asking you to enter a new password, and this will remove the password.

Exit the menu by clicking "Save and Exit." Click "Enter."

How do you get into the bios on a 785gt-e63 msi motherboard? read the book it said at start up press f1 did not work.


As soon as you turn on the computer start tapping (not fast, but steady) the F1 key, you could try F2, DEL, and other various keys that work on other boards.

Usually the screen will show you what to press in the corner or somewhere on the screen.

F12 for boot / F2 for BIOS / etc
Or it might say Press F1 or F2 or something to enter Set-up.

You have to catch it before the computer starts to boot into your operating system.

At this point you can push the power button for half a second and the computer should turn off instantly as you have not started booting up the computer.
Then you can try another key to enter the BIOS.

After locating the manual and skimming through it, I see that it states you need to press the DEL key to enter setup (BIOS).

Hopefully that helps.

My computer monitor is black with a white window that reads "computer going to sleep". I tried holding in the power button and I tried unplugging for 20 seconds. The mouse light is not on. Please advise on...


Somtimes holding the power button dosent work, you need to tap it as if you wher just turning it on.

There should be a FN key somwhere on the keyboard normally on the bottem left of the keyboard, then up the top you will have the F keys F1,F2, and so on, have a look and see if you can find one with a couple of zz's on it, hold down the FN key then press the F key with the Zz on it and the computer should wake up.

To stop this from happening you will need to go to controll panel and look for the power options, in there you should be able to adjust any sleep mode settings and even stop the computer sleeping.
