Bios Password Blockd


You have to use F10 to get into setup to restore defaults. Default is no password. When you change all the setup you wanted and save all the changes then you leave setup to restart the system. If you then get blue screen, you do the ctrl-alt-del to get task manager. Which can have new task config, you click ok. Don't put in any password again in setup or task manager. Learn setup and task manager software?

Dell Latitude D620 BIOS password help!!! I bought a Dell D620 and I noticed that some BIOS features are password protected. The previous owner said he doesn't know anything about it, so I'm not sure what...


Dell usually sets a default password as password or admin Try those first. If no luck go into the bios setup by continually tapping the exc key while the computer boots. If your licky you may be able to set yourself as administrator and give yourself admin rights. With admin rights you can do anything.

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a


Hi,
When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?


The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

Keydisk - http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe

** I have downloaded this file myself from the link above and scanned it with microsoft one care, it came up clean **

Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

Bios default password


The BIOS default password is just blank, and it is not asked.

When you set a bios password, you are asked to enter a value, therefore if bios is asking the password, the password had been changed.

To reset the bios password if you do not know the password you need to access to motherboard and temporarily remove battery for few seconds.
Removing battery will reset bios and delete the password.
Unplug power cord before accessing the motherboard, and try not touching the motherboard with your finger.
Put battery back in place before restarting computer.
