Instead how can I get passed the password on the bios cmos setup utility


The cmos setup info is maintained by a small battery on the motherboard. Removing the battery will clear the password. The battery is a small silver coin sized type. There's also usually a reset jumper that will do the same thing.

After clicking f2 and entering setup, what is the process of disabling the CMOS. After doing that, how do you save and exit and return to the operating system?


Were you locked out of windows? Clearing the CMOS will not fix that, it will only set your motherboard to standard factory settings. It is possible that in clearing the CMOS you have lost settings that are required to have the system start and until you reset those you may not be able to exit the bios.

X7DBI+ bios password


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon1333/5000P/X7DBE.cfm

Remove the cmos battery on the mainboard for like 15 min. and inset the battery again.

This will clear the bios and remove the password.

But you have to setup the bios clock, date, boot settings, when the pass is gone.

The cmos battery look like this:

Password is forgotten. I can get passed the booot up screen. I cant get into the boot menu or setup with out the password. please help


You will have to do a hard cmos clearing which will load your bios back to it default value. 99% of the time if will clear the password. In order to do this, you may have to tear your laptop apart just to get to the cmos battery which is located on your laptop motherboard somewhere. Once you located your cmos battery which is silver/nickel size of a nickel, you need to take this battery out for a few minute and then reinstall it back, then put your laptop toghter and then it will clear the bios and reload to it's default setting.

How to remove cmos/bios password ?


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Where is Cmos Clear jumper on motherboard to clear Bios password.


If you can't find the jumper, just remove the CMOS battery wait for 1/2 + hour and the re-insert the battery. This will reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you then need to set the Time & Date.
It may not remove the BIOS password if the laptop stores the password on an EEPROM chip.

Sony vaio VGN FJ290P password reset sony vaio VGN FJ290P


I have set the password for administrator when i entered the bios set up. you can change its setting but not the configuration unless you've entered the password. you can't change the password with a new one if you cant enter the old password. Next time dont forget your password because laptops has its security even when stolen you cant open its bios set up if its protected by password. CMOS battery is in the mother board. You need a service technician to open your laptop to reset the bios setup battery.

Problem


That particular board has PS2 ports on it. I would suggest a couple of things. If you have a PS2 keyboard, plug it in and use it since legacy USB support might not be turned on in BIOS.

If that works, go into BIOS and turn on legacy USB support and then try the USB KB again.

Secondly, if you don't have a PS2 keyboard, get your manual out and clear the CMOS. It might be that the legacy USB is turned off and clearing the CMOS will re-enable that (assuming it is done at the factory).

Good luch.
