A bios password or operating system password for XP and Vista? I will tell you for both. For the BIOS you can usually just remove the CMOS battery for overnight and it will reset. If you have XP or Vista and you need the password to login then you will need to either crack the password or remove it using a boot utility. I suggest downloading ophrack from www.ophcrack.org and burning it to an image. Then on boot select the cd drive and follow the on screen directions. If its an easy password and your luck it should take an hour or so.

Remove password from hardrive in bios


Depending on Make and Model if you remove the Battery from the motherboard for 20-30 seconds to be safe, it will reset the board and release any BIOS password and restore it to factory default. This doesn't always work especially on Lenovo laptops you would have to contact IBM/Lenovo

I have an acer travelmate 7730g. I turned off the fingerprint securlty and am now presented with a password request before anything boots up. The thing is I don't remember ever setting this password...


I ran into the same issue with a bios password The laptop is a newer Acer TravelMate and I was able to remove the password. Remove the hardrive first. Then remove the memory and unplug the black and red wires from the battery about 2 inches away wait a then plug it back in. With the harddrive out still I turned the computer back on and then back off, put the harddrive back in.

You will end up clearing the bios settings including the fingerprint readers settings.

I dont know the hdd 0 or hardrive password and am locked out of my laptop


The recovery/removal of a hdd password is a professional job, extremely expensive. Just buy a new one and reinstall, your data is lost anyway.

Bios locked out


If you know how to dissemble your computer and are comfortable with it, open it and remove the CMOS battery, wait about 10 minutes, put it back and turn on your machine. All BIOS settings should have been restores to factory defaults, including passwords. Hope this is helpful.

Hard Drive Password Lock out


If you are able to locate either the jumper (JBAT1) terminal from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2; or the cmos battery(remove for about 10 minutes) which will be on the motherboard although where is anyones guess, unless somebody does know, but i'm sorry i don't. Athough this may not open up the hardrive as sometimes there is a hidden file on some manufacturers hardrives that sometimes prevent formating.
