Bios Password for vpx Matrix 2250 Computer

I went to boot my Matrix 2250 after having been gone for 3 weeks, it is now asking for a password before anything even starts to load? (I assume a bios password, which I never set.) Where can I find the password or how do I reset it to nothing?

    Do you mean VPR Matrix 2250? Is it asking for a password to boot into Windows or before it even gets that far?

This is a very common problem that not many people know how to fix.

step 1. Open the side of your tower

step 2 look around and you should see a small flat battery (like a watch battery)

step 3 - Remove the battery and wait a few minutes and place it back in.

if it is a BIOS password it will have been reset now. ^_^

I have a toshiba satellite pro 4300 series notebook and just after i boot up it asks me for a password.i think its the bios password because still after pressing F2 for boot menu,same thing happens. please...


This is the procedure for a desktop and I'm sure it will work for a laptop. Your CMOS holds the password in memory and this memory is backed up by a battery. Remove this battery, wait a minute or so and re-fit the battery. The password is gone. To save a lot of typing, have a read of this post [http://murfsgarage.cybertechhelp.com/cmos.htm ]

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.

I entered my administrator bios password wrong 3


there are a few different ways to resolve this issue
1. call the manufacturer and ask if they have a reset or a way to get the password

2.look in the manual and see if your laptop has a jumper setting that will reset the bio (including the password)

3 just go to the manufacturers website and get the latest bios update and flash the bios

4 remove the cmos battery leave it out for literally a week (7days) then replace it (best if the computer is off this entire time)- this way it forgets whats saved in the bios

HELP!!!! ---- HP Notebook (zx5060us) Asks for Bios Password Now...


Hi,
If the system boots to a windows screen, then asks for a password, it's definitely NOT a bios password, but a windows operating system password. Either way, if we had it here at the shop, I could have it done in a few minutes; to bad you're not in Tulsa.
What makes you think it's a bios password?
Good luck

PASSWORD PROBLEMS


Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
