Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your biosI cleared the bios password, but still asks me for - 2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:

• Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.

• Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.

• Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.

• Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.

• Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.

• If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.

NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

Check below for the picture of the HW Password reser gap. The gap that needs to be "shorted" is G77.

Cannot get to windows


that is a BIOS power on password. If you have the password then start up the laptop and press f1 to get to the bios. It will prompt you for the password type it in then you will gain access to the bios. In the bios go into security then password then power on password. type in the old password then leave the next 2 spots blank and that will clear the password. If you do not have the password then I would suggest asking whomever you got the laptop from and ask them for it. if that is not a possibility then look for a copy of Hiram's boot disk and use that to hack it.

Forgot CMOS Password


Try leaving it blank see if that works first. If that don't work you may try to type in microsoft in the user name, and leave password blank, maybe that will work, If that don't work there are password retrieval disks you can buy, or you may have to reinstall the operating system, By doing a full OS (Operating system) restore. you will loose all info that was on the laptop, I sure Hope that Helps you out, If you need something else just ask here, thanks bear001
