Open the chassis, locate the internal backup battery and disconnect it.
Let it be disconnected for 24-48 hours.

Remove the CMOS battery and wait for 1/2 +hour, reinsert the battery, The BIOS now has the default settings, now go into the BIOS configuration and set the Time 7 Date settings.
If you ar trying to remove the BIOS or power on password, you will find that the password/s are stored on an EEPROM chip and there is usually no backdoor passwords.

I forgot my cmos password what will i do to reset it


You're out of luck. A forgotten CMOS password cannot be bypassed or reset. You are stuck with a locked CMOS.

This only means the CMOS settings are not accessible. This shouldn't stop your computer from booting. That would be the CMOS boot-up password. If you can boot you can reformat. But, you cannot reformat (flash) the locked CMOS.

If you can't boot into the O/S then you're stuck until you can remember your CMOS boot-up password.

Next time, write it down and keep it safe.

Toshiba satelite bios password recovery


On laptops there isn't an easy way to recover passwords in the BIOS. Sometimes you can reset the password. Other times, you'll have to contact the manufacturer to get it reset.

Some laptops will allow you to reset the BIOS password by pulling the CMOS battery. The CMOS battery is typically located under one of the bottom panels for access to the memory or wireless cards. Some models have the CMOS battery connected by a small wire with a clip connector, others have the CMOS battery placed directly on the motherboard with a metal retainer clip.

Here is a link to a removable CMOS battery with wires: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/removable-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

Here is a link to a CMOS battery that is directly on the motherboard: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/coin-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

On a laptop, if you unplug the power cord, remove the laptop main battery and then remove the CMOS battery - and then wait at least 5 minutes, some models will blank out the BIOS password. Not every BIOS password can be erased by removing the CMOS battery - but if you are comfortable working on the laptop parts it is worth a try.

If removing the CMOS battery doesn't fix the BIOS password, the only option left is to contact the manufacturer for a reset. (If you took your laptop to a certified technician - they would just contact the manufacturer for the reset, and then bill the time to you!)

The number to contact Toshiba is 1-800-457-7777.

How can i reset the cmos in my ms200 all in one computer?? it shows that my hasrd drive is not working, and it is really working in other computer


Hi,

To reset the CMOS the easiest way is, remove the motherboard battery for ten minute then install it again. It will clear the CMOS. Then reset the CMOS/BIOS setup, date/ time etc. Another way to clear CMOS is, reset the CMOS Jumper in motherboard.

To detect your hard drive you can try to check by change the hard drive cables. Change the port in motherboard. Check the BIOS setup and reset it if need.

Reset Cmos Settings for Acer Computers


There might be a jumper on your motherboard that's labelled CMOS, or reset... you just have to move the jumper to the other pin combination, power up your PC, then turn it back off and replace the jumper.
If you can't find a CMOS jumper, try unplugging your computer and removing the battery on your motherboard for a few minutes. When you turn it back on, your CMOS should reset to factory defaults.
