Hi,
If you forgot your BIOS password, then you can reset it by clearing the CMOS settings. Do to that, you have to remove a small battery present onto the motherboard in your laptop. Remove the back panel of your laptop and locate your motherboard carefully. There you can find a small coin sized battery which provides power to the CMOS to remember your system date, password and other settings. Remove that battery from your motherboard and replace it back after 15 mins. Then fix the panel back and restart your system. It will prompt you for setting up BIOS or to restore default settings. Now your password should also be cleared. I hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: How do I remove forgotten BIOS password?

1) You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing <Alt><F>

2) I am not sure about the laptops, but in the Dell Desktops usually there is a reset jumper on the motherboard which is seated on 2pins out of 3, you just need to remove that jumper turn on the pc once and the turn on the pc again by reseating the jumper to its original place. You can try this with your laptop, I guess the jumper should be somewhere close to the CMOS battery.

3) Remove the battery and keep it away for atleast 30 mins. and replace it again.

NOTE: make sure while following step (3) and (4) the system should be completely turned off. Unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery and hold the power button for atleast 8 - 10 seconds.

let me know the output

Forgot password


If you are trying to get passed the windows password, you will need a copy of Hirens boot disc, then go into Bios and make the unit boot from CD/ DVD drive. reboot machine.Then run the program "active password changer v3", select account you want the password wiped from, "Administrator" press enter. there is now no password on the Administrator account.

Too bad pal. Now open it and remove the button cell that is there on the motherboard. Insert it back after a minute or so. Re-assemble the laptop and remember never to give a password anywhere.

Reset the Bios by removing the small battery inside your laptop in few seconds. but you need to open your laptop if this under warranty don't open it to avoid broke the warranty bring your laptop to warranty if they ask you the payment for removing the password just pay them.. the inportant is the warranty still there.., if not under warranty open you laptop remove the battery or short it in few second to remove the Bios password.. if not Bios password. use the program password changer or password remover,, just donwload in ISOHUNT.COM program is available there..< program name> hirens, password changer...

Can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e


Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?

Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.

I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
