Please help me : :' my pc is lenovo g500 and i forgot password bios who help me please


Hi,

I do google your problem and look to the lenovo G500 manual.
here's the manual says.

sources: http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/g410_g510_ug_en.pdf

BIOS password problems I forgot my password. • If you forget your user password, you must ask the system administrator to reset your user password. • If you forget your HDD password, a Lenovo authorized servicer cannot reset your password or recover data from the hard disk. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the hard disk drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service. • If you forget your administrator password, a Lenovo authorized servicer cannot reset your password. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the system board replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.


But in my own way of troubleshooting.
1. open your Lenovo G500
2. Check your motherboard and look for bios/cmos battery.
3. Remove the battery
4. Get flat screw driver then put it between two pins where the cmos battery attached.
5. Hold it for 10 to 15 sec.
6. Put the cmos battery back and the motherboard
7. Power it up and holla the bios setting has been reset to default.

Here the sample image of Lenovo G500 motherboard

Stuck at BIOS password in my Thinkpad


The laptop cannot decide by itself to ask for a password. It was set by the owner. Ask around you to see if anybody admits doing it.
Or take the computer to a Lenovo service center to have the password removed. Be ready to show proof of ownership. Be ready to pay foe the service if the laptop is no longer under warranty.
Out of curiosity: have tried contacting Lenovo support?

How do I uninstall poweron password?


Not sure I understand your poweron password issue. Is this within BIOS, or a program you installed in Windows?
If BIOS, then I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool can be effective.:
Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords biospasswordrecovery. com

How to remove lenovo R61 thinkPad POWERON PASSWORD


THINKPAD BIOS AND POWER ON PASSWORD
The BIOS password is configured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an 24RF08 EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor password available and IBM/Lenevo support says the motherboard needs to be replaced. Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to the default settings will not allow you to bypass this password. This also applies to the Power On Password and the Hard Disk Password. There is a way to crack the password but you need electronic skills, electronic components and several programs plus a working computer to carry out this task. For details on how to do this check this WEB site. http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/

I have a dell latitude E6320 laptop . . . service tag#18QT4R1 - 1D3B HELP!!! FORGOT INTERNAL HDD-0 PASSWORD . . . ANY IDEA'S ON HOW I CAN ACCESS . . . . HELP!


Sorry, but you'll probably need to get yourself a new hard disk.

If its a ATA hard disk password, sorry, but you're pretty much screwed...
Its probably the hardest password to bypass.

IF the laptop still has a BIOS or POWERON password, that is the same as the hard disk password... ie, if you only ever had to put in one password, and, if, with the hard disk removed, it still asks for your password, you MAY be able to pay someone to RECOVER that password, and then use the recovered password to unlock the hard disk.
If however, the system doesnt prompt you for a password with the hard disk removed, either at turn on or to enter the BIOS, then the password is only on the hard disk.

No software will remove that password, unless you already know the password, as it is integrated into the hard disk electronics and stored on the platter. The hard disk will cancel any read requests until a valid password is input.

IF you need data, your only options are:
A. Remember password.... keep trying. :-(

B. Send the hard disk to a professional company that specialises in removing ATA hard disk passwords. For example:
http://www.nortek.on.ca/Password%20Removal/PasswordRemoval.aspx

There are probably a few others around too, but few and far between, and will charge dollars to do it.. I'm guessing $100USD+ to remove password.

Oh, and Dell won't help, in case you were wondering.:-(

Sorry about the bad news, and hope the info helps.

Forgot password to my ibm thinkpad 2373


Which password have you forgotten? If it is the Power On password this can be reset by briefly removing the connection from the system board to the cmos battery. If it is the Supervisor password you can either send it to Lenovo for a replacement system board and hard drive or send to me and I will return with password removed. fixmythinkpad@btinternet.com Regards Paul
