Try removing the main battery and unplug the power then hold the power button down for 30 seconds, if that doesnt work you will need to take the cmos battery out for a minute and replace it then that will clear the password

SOURCE: remove password on f2 bios setup utility access,

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

How to reset all settings to my lenovo a269i mobile thru pc


Is it a think pad ?
Power off your Thinkpad.
Press and hold the "F1" key and turn your Thinkpad on, still holding the "F1" key down.


Release the "F1" key when you hear repeating beeps. Wait for the "IBM BIOS Setup Utility" to load.

Select "Startup" using the arrow keys and press "Enter."
Select "Boot" or "Startup Sequence" and press "Enter."

Select "CD-ROM Drive."
Press the "F6" key repeatedly until "CD-ROM Drive" sits at the top of the list.

Insert your recovery CD into your Thinkpad's CD-ROM drive.
If you have multiple recovery CDs, insert the CD that has "Disc 1" on its label.

Press "F10" to save your changes and exit the BIOS Utility.
Select "Yes" and press "Enter" when the "Setup Confirmation" window appears.

Your laptop will restart. Wait for the Recovery Utility to load.

Select "Restore to Factory Specifications" to erase the contents of your hard drive and reinstall the Windows version and drivers that your Thinkpad originally came with.


Follow the Recovery Utility's onscreen instructions.
When prompted to insert another disc, do so according to the numerical labels on your recovery CDs (e.g., insert "Disc 2" after "Disc 1" and "Disc 3" after "Disc 2").

Your Thinkpad restarts when the restore process finishes. Power off your Thinkpad.

Hold down the "F1" key and power on your laptop to access the "IBM BIOS Setup Utility."


Select "Boot" or "Startup Sequence" and press "Enter."
Press "F9."

Select "Setup Defaults" from the menu and press "Enter" so that your Thinkpad no longer boots from the CD-ROM drive.

Press "F10" and select "Yes" to confirm your changes.
Your Thinkpad will restart and load your newly installed operating system.

Can't access bios utility setup


You have different keys to click on different PC. Since you have not specified the kind of laptop you have, here are few keys you have to strike: Turn off computer first then before it opens, you have to click DELETE key randomly to enter to bios utility setup. If it does not work, turn off again and try F12, if it doesn't turn off then try these: F1, F11 and ESC.
Congratulations.

My toshiba satellite a55 s326 owners' manual says i can view the bios settings by going to HWSetup through the control panel. HW Setup isn't there. How do i view the bios settings?


With the older toshiba, you can access the bios when starting up by oressing esc key.. Now they have to make everything cheap and difficult (making money). However the newer version such as your satellite, you can't, access the bios via startup anymore. It's only going to prompt you of boot up order, or loading default value y/n for your bios. These Toshiba laptops are "legacy-free" and only have access to the bios through a Windows-based utility called Toshiba HWsetup. It comes installed with toshiba laptops (and, I think ,through their recovery cds etc). Check out your recovery disk to see if it has that application. I hope this help.

HOW CAN I RESTORE MY ACER TRAVELMATE 2200 without the original disk??????????????? NOW CAN U ANSWER THAT...ASAP


Hello !

Note: the recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software content that is installed when you purchase your notebook.

You can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle. This should prompt the laptop to access the recovery partition on the hard drive.

If it doesn't work :

Activate BIOS Setup Utility, press <F2> during POST.

Check the BIOS settings.

a Check to see if "Acer disc-to-disc" function is enabled or not.
b Make sure the [Acer D2D Recovery] setting in [Main] is
[Enabled].
c Exit the BIOS Setup Utility and save changes. The system will
reboot.

Hope this helps.
