I always use a bios password. Can you access your bios (also called CMOS) I am sure there is a bios reset (usually a jumper you install over two metal prongs on the motherboard) or other method to reset your bios to factory.

SOURCE: removal of bios level password

Some laptops are passworded default at'oooo' or 'ooooo'. The bios re-set is the 'JBAT1' terminal, from jumpers 1-2 to 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2 again, but where the terminal is exactly on your motherboard i do not know. You may also try removing the bios didc shaped battery for 15 minutes or so, then replacing.

Buying a used laptop with a password protected bios


Folks when you are considering buying a used laptop. NEVER buy one that has a password protected bios. If you are looking at it and its not in a Windows screen asking for a password DONT buy it unless the seller shows you they can log on past it. Then make sure in that case you have that password when you leave. There is NO bios password work around, no program that can get past a firmware password at all. I think today I posted at least 10 times the same answer for people asking for a bios password. If they say they forgot it then that laptop is a paper weight unless your buying it for parts only.

Reset BIOS password for SAMSUNG NP-SF510 LAPTOP


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:

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools

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

Good Luck!

You need the bios master password for your Dell laptop which you can get at http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Dell_Bios.php Just order the Dell bios master password for $20 and they guarantee it to clear your currently set bios password. I use them often in my work repairing laptops.

Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password
Download (Keydisk) http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

Can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.
