For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.

Bio password remove


From computerhope.com:

A laptop BIOS password is more secure than a traditional desktop to help protect the data if it was stolen. If you are the original owner of the laptop, we highly recommend contacting the manufacturer of the laptop. Companies such as Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba can reset the password if you are the original owner using the Service Tag, disk, or give you exact steps for your laptop.

It ask for bio pass that i don't know ?


You could try to remove the CMOS battery for a few hours, sometimes that will reset. Contact HP for a one time BIOS password or ask the person you got it from.

Why the The backlight of my keyboard on my Lenovo ideapad y480 isn't functional?


Many of the newer models (if you purchased during the Week/1TB sale Lenovo did) they do no include back-lit keys.
I received mine around 9/19/12 and it did not come with back-lit keys.

Unless you have physically inspected the underside of the keys and you see the diodes, then you should contact Lenovo.

How do i reset the bios password for my lenovo a310?


User passwords:
Power on
BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.

Hard drive
The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.

Administrative passwords:
Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.

Password Recovery is a feature of Client Security Solution 6.0. This makes it possible for an end user to recover from the problem of "I forgot my Power On Password or Hard Drive Password."

Main screen password issues


It's one or two problems,
1. If you are using linux as an OS it have time limit on your password that will lock you out of your system. Micorsoft is it!
2. Go to your bios setup and reset your password by using F2 key or the DEL key to get us to the bio setup to change your password. Take your time when you are in the BIO setup and read each step you do!
