Bios problem


Bios password is used to lock the BIOS (Basic Input Output Settings) in the computer system.


If you forgot the bios password use the steps below.

The password is stored in your CMOs which is powered by a very small battery on the motherboard. Theres only 3 ways to remove that password...

Send it to the manufacture to have them remove it as the following two step call for you voiding your warranty.

Open up the laptop by removing the 15-20 screws off the bottom of the unit, then find this small watch like battery and remove it, keep it removed for about 10 seconds then place it back in the unit.

If the battery cannot be found then it would be best to contact someone who is familiar with motherboard jumper settings or if neither of the previous answers I gave work for you then re-post asking for the specifics of your make and models motherboard jumper settings...

I have an acer aspire 5100 that someone gave to me and I don't have the password to it. I would like to reboot it; And I try f10 but nothing works is there and thing else I need to do?


if its a bios password, then whoever gave it to you SHOULD know the password. If it is an operating system password, then the same applies, to be sure reload an operating system and create your own password.

Friend gave me an old hp pavilion xz1185 laptop,but he dont recall password for cmos to get in,can i reset cmos?


This may not work but give it a try.
Remove the BIOS battery and the main battery from the laptop for 15+ minutes. Insert the batteries back into the laptop and the BIOS will return to the default setup, hopefully removing the BIOS password. You need to go into the BIOS configuration to set the Time and Date etc. again.

I CAN'T GET MY LAPTOP PASS THE PASSWORD SCREEN


remove the cmos battery for 30 secs at least - usually works

also try looking in your manual for mention of a cmos reset jumper,
short these 2 pins and it should reset your bios to defaults and remove any passwords

It sounds as if this is a BIOS password request.

Has anyone been changing setting in the BIOS recently?

Occasionally, static or electrical interference can cause a BIOS password to reset to it's default.

Bypassing the BIOS password is not easy, but is possible. First of all, I would suggest you try some of the common manufacturers default passowrda. You can find lists here and here.


Failing that, there are software programs available to recover/reset lost BIOS password or you can manually reset the BIOS. Details of how you do this are here and here.

If you are not 100% sure what you are doing, I would not advise you to reset your BIOS. There are setting in here that you will need to set in order for your computer to work properly. Wrong values could prevent it from working at all, or could even cause permanent damage.

Google for 'reset bios password' - You'll find lots more information...

Hope this helps,

Matt

Bios password???


Everex has a known problem with this model of laptop. It has been known to set its bios password by itself. It is a simple fix, but should be done by a proffesional. There is no charge for this repair at a Everex repair center.
If you want, this is what needs to be done. Remove the piece of plastic above the keyboard. Unscrew the 2 screws in the keyboard and lift the keyboard up( No reason to disconnect it ) Unscrew and remove the modem card in the center. There is 2 solder points c88 on the system board. You need to short those 2 points out while you press the power button on. This will reset the bios password. This should take someone about 5 minutes to do.


If this solved your problem please rate this solution as "Solved" or ask here again in order to find another possible cause
