Hi there.
Take the side panel from the case, look for a battery like this >>>>>I want to get passed - b3131f4.jpg
Remove this battery for 10 minutes then put it back, make sure the power cord is taken out from the back before removing the side panel.
This should remove the password and reset the bios so you will have to set the date and time again.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

When turning on my Dell Inspiron 1525 the only thing that comes on the screen is asking for the Hard Disk Security Password and since I do not know this i cant get passed this screen other than it telling...

It seems that hard disk security password has been set from BIOS. This can be removed from BIOS, can you access BIOS or is it also password protected?

I 4got my password.

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Hope this helps you

Hi i have a toshiba satellite pro l450d-12x as soon as i start it it goes into a black screen & promps me for a password i have never loaded a password could you please help


This is a security password set in the BIOS. You will need this password to by pass this screen. If you got this pc from someone, you should contact them and request password or do a complete reinstall of the os and loss all data.

Good Luck

Doesn't pass the bios screen

You either remember the password or you probably have a large door stop. BIOS passwords are very secure to prevent theft. You can check my tip for possible ways to recover but no guarantee.

I have forgotten the password/security details of my old yahoo accounts. I wish to access them now.

Contact Yahoo and give them your information. They can email your user name and password, if you can answer your security questions.

I nedd my laptop

If you lost you password to your BIOS, you can reset your BIOS by taking out the CMOS battery and placing it back in.
On the bottom of your laptop, you should see a panel that is screwed on. Take out the screws, and in there should be your hard drive, or your laptops memory sticks. And around it should be a round battery connected to the motherboard with a wire. Un-plug and Re-plug the wire, and your BIOS should have reset back to its default settings.
