You will probably need to 'default' the mainboard. There should be a 'jumper' (set of 3 pins with a small cap spanning two of them) may say CLR or similar in silkscreen on the board next to the jumpers. Definitely get a manual for your computer to help you find this jumper - hopefully it will be as simple as moving the cap to the third pin (move from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3) This will short the CMOS and clear it. If everything else is default settings - then you are good to go. Move the jumper back to original position and try to start.

Asus f9sg bios password


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

I bought this from a friend and they wont let me have the mastercode unless I am the primary owner. I need to reset my bios password on my asus G50vt laptop. Without the password my battery doesnt charge...


There are two ways I can think of to reset the BIOS password. 1) Get the password from your friend or have him contact ASUS to get it changed. 2) Remove the BIOS battery for a few seconds to reset the BIOS.

I have not had the opportunity to do any internal repairs on this particular laptop, but after 3 years as a Dell Field Rep I can tell you that it is not something for everybody to try.

Bios password, how do i remove it. I need to change the boot system to install windows.


Unplug the power cord from the power supply.
The fastest way to clear the bios password would be to first find the bios/cmos battery on the motherboard. See the picture below.
8931cc0.jpg

Next find the 3-pin bios jumper. Asus motherboards usually mark the motherboard bios pins as, CLRTC.
It will be rather close to the bios battery. Pay attention to the current position of the bios jumper. It is currently set as normal. The jumper will cover pins 1 and pin 2.
Remove the jumper and place over pins 2 and pin 3. Doing this will clear the bios and will reset all bios settings to DEFAULT. Grab a small flat- head screw driver. Gently insert the screw driver slightly under the battery edge to help you to remove the battery. Wait 30 seconds and reseat the battery. Reset the bios jumper back to pins 1 and pin 2.
Reconnect the power supply cord. You will need to enter the bios and re-configure all your settings. Use your motherboard manual to help guide you through all your bios settings. Next time include the model number of your Asus MB.

Happy holidays!

Reset password thinkpad 2656


Resetting the BIOS Password using Software Every system must store the BIOS password information somewhere. If you are able to access the machine after it has been booted successfully, you may be able to view the BIOS password. You must know the memory address where the BIOS password is stored, and the format in which the BIOS password is stored. Or, you must have a program that knows these things.
You can write your own program to read the BIOS password from the CMOS memory on a PC by writing the address of the byte of CMOS memory that you wish to read in port 0x370, and then reading the contents of port 0x371.
!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.
CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:
  • 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

Hard drive locked


First check in bios that your harddisk is detected or not?

You can ente rin bios with following method:

When u powerup press F2 or "del" F1 key to enter in bios.
but if u have problem of bios password followbelow procedure

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user passsword

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
