Remove password from hardrive in bios


Before your computer loads your operating system, it starts by running the BIOS program, which is extremely important because of its various options.

You can even set a password on your hard drive so that nobody can use your laptop computer without your password.

Once you put in the password into your hard drive, you can only remove it by accessing the BIOS system and deleting the password completely from the memory of your computer.

Save all of your important files on an external hard drive or similar storage device.
This is a precaution to avoid losing all of your files when making changes to the BIOS.

Then, restart your computer.
Wait for your computer's operating system to ask you to access the BIOS menu.

This may be at different times, depending on the manufacturer of your computer.
It can ask you when the manufacturer's logo comes up, or on a separate screen indicating for you to click the "F2" button on your keyboard to start.

Access the BIOS menu by clicking the key or combination of keys that you are informed to click. This information can be found in your computer's manual, but it changes between different companies.

Commonly used keys for this process are "F10", "F2" and "Delete."
Go to the BIOS option that contains your hard disk drive password.

The option that will lead you to this password varies immensely due to different laptop models, but it may appear as something such as "Advanced" or "Security."


Look for the option for changing the password, which should say "User Password," and then click "Enter." Put in the existing password and then click "Enter."

Do not enter any password into the blank fields asking you to enter a new password, and this will remove the password.

Exit the menu by clicking "Save and Exit." Click "Enter."

I have lost the bios password... any body help me to recover without opening case


This is a tricky one because the BIOS password is made to be the hardest password on a computer to break. Some manufacturers allow you to enter BIOS without the BIOS password but most do not. Here are some troubleshooting methods starting with the easiest and moving on to the hardest.

To enter BIOS hit the F2 key repeatedly as the computer boots up. You should enter BIOS after the first loading screen. If this does not send you into BIOS, try the ESC, DEL, and F1 keys. Once in BIOS find where you can set the password and reset it or enter a blank password as your new password.

If you can't access BIOS or are prompted for a password once you enter BIOS, try the following methods to flush the BIOS password cache:
1. Contact your manufacturer's support and ask if they have a backdoor BIOS password that they will allow you to use. This works to allow you to enter that password instead of your own and easily fixes the whole problem, but not all companies will tell you their password. You can also do a google search for your manufacturer's backdoor BIOS password since many of them have been discovered.
2. Send your laptop to your manufacturer to have them reset the password manually, although this takes an undisclosed amount of time and they will often make you pay a fee if you are not under warranty.
3. If you don't want to pay your manufacturer, open your laptop and locate the motherboard. On the motherboard there is a CMOS battery, if you don't know where this is use your PC manual. Remove the CMOS battery for an hour and then place it back on the motherboard. This should reset the password. After this turn on your computer and enter BIOS. This will reset all your BIOS settings so it may take a few minutes to open. After it is open, just exit BIOS and everything should be working properly. Just be very careful when opening the laptop and handling the CMOS battery because you can severely damage your laptop if you don't handle it properly.

Thanks for using FixYa and good luck!

My sister gave me a Compaq evo computer. When i turn it on it goes right to a screen that says Power-on password with a picture of a key. She doesn't know what the password was and it doesn't let...


Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

How can I remove BIOS Password from Acer TravelMate 230/280 MS2132 laptop?


Use a Backdoor Password
  • 1

    Go to the Technibble website and locate the manufacturer of the BIOS for your computer. Write down the backdoor passwords that are listed.

  • 2

    Restart the computer and press the "F2" key to access the BIOS.

  • 3

    Enter one of the backdoor passwords to see if you can access the BIOS. Repeat this step until you find a password that works--but keep in mind, sometimes three wrong guesses will cause the computer to lock up.

  • 4

    Change the password for the BIOS to something else, then exit and restart the computer.

  • Remove the CMOS Battery
  • 1

    Unplug the computer from the wall outlet or power strip. Remove the screws on the back of the case that secure the side panel. Slide the side panel off and then locate the round CMOS battery that is attached to the motherboard.

  • 2

    Examine the battery to see how it is attached to the motherboard. Pull on the latch to release the battery and then remove it from the motherboard.

  • 3

    Wait about 20 to 30 minutes for the electricity in the capacitors on the motherboard to discharge or dissipate.

  • 4

    Set the CMOS battery back in the motherboard. Set the side panel back in place and the plug the power cord back in.

  • 5

    Restart the computer and press the "F2" key to access the BIOS

    Acer aspire IE3450P BIOS Password


    A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. Many big name computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP lock the customers out of this area because they don’t want the customer changing anything and potentially damaging the machine (which the manufacturer may have to warranty). However, when someone like a computer technician or hardware enthusiast needs to make some hardware changes to the computer, they will need to access the BIOS. Here are some methods to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

    NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a pass worded Hard Drive. 3 wrong guesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lost forever.
    How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing the CMOS Battery:
    The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.
    remove-battery.thumbnail.jpgAnyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like the picture to the right. Some computers have this part standing upright.
    Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.
    remove-bios-battery.thumbnail.jpg Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 – 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.
    Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during boot up now, you will need to go to “Load BIOS Defaults” in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.


    Please rate me if this solution works for you

    Thanks......Have a great time.

    Entering BIOS settings, Easy-Access, after POP, with external KB


    The Power On Password problem is near impossible to crack. It is designed to prevent unauthorized access to the Thinkpad and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
    There are no backdoor passwords available, the only option is to ask the person who set the password.
    OR
    There is a way to hack into the Thinkpad to see and remove the password but it requires electronic skills, a program and a working computer.
