If this is really so, then you should shorten "Clear CMOS" jumper near the battery on your motherboard or even take the battery out for a short time. For detailed instruction how to do that, see your motherboard's manual

Hi,
Dont worry.. Dont search for him. you can easily reset the bios password. Follow below instructions...

  1. Power off the computer and make sure that it is unplugged.
  2. Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure.
  3. Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery.
  4. 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.
  5. Set the battery back into place and power on the computer.
  6. 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.
Thank you.......

On your motherboard next to the silver battery is a a jumper. Its going to be labeled JP1. This will clear the BIOS Password. There will be a piece of plastic covering pins 1 and 2. What you need to do is move that jumper so it covers pins 2 and 3. Then turn on the system and you should get into the bios.

If you change the jumper and your system doesn't turn on then that means its shorting out the motherboard which is fine. Regardless put the jumper back onto pins 1 and 2 and then turn on the computer and you should get into the BIOS as well.

Let me know how this helps you.

I would like reset the password of my d33005 motherboard


Go into the BIOS setup to reset the password. Start by rebooting the system. Before the system starts loading the operating system, the computer will give an opportunity to enter the BIOS setup utility. Usually a screen appears saying to press a key to enter the setup utility; i.e. "Hit DEL to enter Setup". You have to know what key the computer is looking for to get to Setup. DEL in used on the a lot of ASUS machines but you may that to refer to a manual or read the screen just before the operating systems to load. Once you get in, look for something related to security settings. Once it is found under the boot tab. Here is where you can reset the motherboard password. Hope this helps.

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?


The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

I cant remember my password to log into the computer


See if you can access the bios setup - usually F1 or F2 key right at the start up and see if that is where the password issue is. If so, try this:
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Let me know.

My computer has a password in the BIOS Setting. i forgot it


Do you know what the password is? If so, enter the bios and change it. When asked for a new password, just hit enter. If it asks a second time to confirm the password, just hit enter again.

Good luck

IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
Solution: Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
New computers Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.
A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.
