Ask him what the password is.

Otherwise you can remove the bios battery while the charger and battery are out for a few minutes.

That should clear it back to default, but it depends on your model whether or not that will work.

How can i have the password bios of laptop dell E6420


f you are running Dell servers, it is recommended to enable BIOS password. This is will prevent accidental changes done to Dell BIOS settings by others who get physical access to the server.

You can setup two different types of passwords in Dell BIOS:

System Password: This will be prompted before the system can boot up, and load the operating system.
Setup password: The system will prompt for this password only when you are trying to access the BIOS settings.

Depending on your situation, it might be a good idea to enable both the system and setup password at the BIOS level. I recommend that you at least enable BIOS password.
Press F2 for System Setup

When the Dell server is booting up, press F2 to start system setup, from where you can change Dell BIOS settings.

BIOS System Security

From the Dell BIOS main menu, scroll down to "System Security" and press enter.

Password Not Enabled

From here, you can see that both the System and Setup password is not enabled by default.

Enable System Password (and Setup Password)

Scroll to "System Password" and press enter, which will prompt you to enter the password that you like to set for the system. Please understand that if you set this password, you have to enter this password everytime you start the system. Do the same thing for Setup Password.

Don't forget this bios password. If you forget, then you have go through the painful process of resetting the Dell BIOS password.
Password is Enabled

Once you've enabled both the password, from the "System Security" menu, you'll see that that both system and setup password is enabled as shown below.

password is set

System Password Prompt (During Startup)

From now-onwards, anytime you start the system, it will not load the operating system, unless you specify the system password as shown below.

Setup Password Prompt (To Access BIOS)

If you press F2, to get to the BIOS, it will prompt for the setup password as shown below. If you don't enter a valid password here, you cannot access the Dell BIOS settings anymore.

Hi How do I clear BIOS password set by misstake on Acer Travelmate 2413 LCI? I can not get in to BIOS setup


When you turn on computer look for Acer logo on boot up. Press F8 or F10 or F2 while the logo comes up several times (if you miss turn it off and try again)and then you can access your bios. Use arrow keys and enter to clear the password. Follow the bottom of the screen for directions and if you need more help let me know and thanks for using FixYa.

Lose TravelMate 270 Series Notebook..bios paswoed


In order to remove password an (educational) solution is to open your laptop back with a screwdriver carefully and remove the bios battery (its a small silver colored round one) and put it back after 5-10 minutes. Then you can close the laptop back and access the bios setup utiliy by pressing the f2 or the f number displayed on startup and replace or deactivate the password. Another solution is to use a backdoor password according to the manufacturer and deactivate the password (search googlefor it) or use a small software utility like !BIOS if i remember correctly to retrieve the password but it may take some time. I hope that helped!

The labtop was found and i cant get into without


You can try to enter setup, most users either forget or don't bother to setup a password to enter it, and either add youself as administrator. With admin rights you'll be able to change/reset passwords, add or remove users and perform other system related functions. To enter setup startup the computer and start tapping the escape key before windows is completely installed. If your unsure of the various options in the setup do a web search for setup options.

Bios password


You will need the BIOS password to enter the BIOS setup.
To do a hardware reset remove the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes. Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
After you enter BIOS, go to the Boot tab and down to "Security" and make your changes there.
If you need help with the default password, please re-post your request.
Thanks and good luck.

You don't need to pay acer the 100usd to get the password removed, 
one thing you can try first, is to disable the elock service from

Acer travelmate 4000 password


No easy fix - your drive is either corrupted so the computer thinks it is locked or someone set a password on it. There is no easy way to remove a password from a drive - the password is stored directly on the platter itself - there is no "hack" i have ever found to download

This company can remove passwords from a drive over the internet for $40-$80 but you have to plug the drive into the inside of a desktop to do it....If you are not comfortable doing it then get a computer savvy friend to help.
