SOURCE: lost password for my packard bell easynote

Only way to remove a BIOS password on any computer is to remove all power sources from the motherboard so its memory can be cleared.

First, remove the main battery from the laptop. Then you must locate and find the little coin cell battery (It looks like a watch battery) on the laptop and remove it for about a minute or so. Then you can replace them in the opposite order.

Unfortunately, some laptop coin cell batteries are difficult to locate, or require an in depth dissection of the laptop to get to them. Without the model of the laptop, I cannot tell you how to get to it.

Hello,
you're out of luck, unless you're familiar with "shorting" the bios chip.
Of course, you can contact Toshiba for a workaround. Proof of ownership is necessary.
good luck

SOURCE: need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region free locked on o1

You can only change the region code up to 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play any region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Need BIOS password for Packard Bell R1938 notepad


If you don't know the password, you will need to make an BIOS reset. You must open your laptop, and find the internal battery in the motherboard. Take it off, for 10 seconds, without any power cable or battery on. After that, put the internal battery in his place, and turn on your laptop. It must open the BIOS without password needed.

PACKARD BELL LJ71 WON'T START UP


can you be more specific as to the actual text? Also you should press F2 or whatever key is your bios hotkey and check your boot order. Make sure that the hard drive is your first boot device. it actually kind of sounds like you have a cd in the drive and it's trying to boot from it. please physically verify that there are no discs in the drive.

I can not get into a password protected, Hewlett-Packard (G62) laptop. An employee left the company under bad terms and would not give us the password. How can I get in and unlock the computer?


Unless you have a "hack CD", the only other way is to "reimage" the laptop. In other words, insert an operaing system CD and turn it on and hit "F12" until it asks you if you want to boot from a CD/DVD, it will give you options on where to boot from as well, select DVD drive. Then when the operating systems set up menu appears, annd you are on the page that has the hard drive letters (e.g.- C:\ ; D:\ and so on select a drive (anyone will do) and then goto the bottom and select "driver options" and basically you want to fromat\delete all the drive partitions(partitions=different letters)

I bought a laptop at a yardsale and it has a bio lock how do i unlock it?


The solution will offer many approaches to resolving a BIOSpassword you need removed.

1. Using a Backdoor BIOS password
Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password isa BIOS password that works regardless of what any other user has set as a BIOSpassword. Although manufacturers change these passwords with newerreleases of hardware, it's worth trying these passwords first before employingmore time-intensive methods.

AMI:Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW ,AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.

AWARD:
One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Awardbackdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 ,ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW,AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo,d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter,PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, andZJAAADC.

Phoenix:Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, andPHOENIX.

Other Manufacturers: VOBIS & IBM - merlin Dell - Dell Biostar - Biostar Compaq - Compaq Enox - xo11nE Epox - central Freetech - Posterie IWill - iwill Jetway - spooml Packard Bell - bell9 QDI - QDI Siemens - SKY_FOX SOYO - SY_MB TMC - BIGO Toshiba - Toshiba 2.Using Software to Reset BIOS Password Thereare two programs that can be used to reset the BIOS password: !BIOS andCmosPwd. !BIOSwill recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM,American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix. You can download it here.Click on Download DOS executable. CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOSversions:
  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI
You can download CmosPwd here. Scroll down andlook for Cmos password recoverytools 5.0 (October 2007) and click the zip that contains a hyperlink.

In order to use these two programs you will need toboot into DOS from a Windows 98 disk or create a DOS boot disk that you can burnto CD or copy to a flash drive. If you don't know how to do this, thenpost back and I can post further instructions.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

When I turn on my packard bell computer on it comes up with a black screen saying "Boot from CD / DVD" and a BIOS password?


Remove the battery on the motherboard to restore default settings.
check the connection to your Hard drive (the system is not seeing it)
The battery removal will take care of the password, and you will be able to get in the BIOS.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!
