Re: Forget my bios password

Removing the battery will not reset the bios on this particular unit. I have the same problem and it will not work on these products. I have sent an email to tech support for acer looking for a master code. I will keep you posted on what I find.

Re: Forget my bios password

On the underside you can take off a panel with a screw driver by unscrewing the philips head screw, and from there, you should find a small, flat, round looking battery, it may be in a yellow or black coating. you have to disconnect this, and then reconnect it. this will reset your bios.

How can see my bios psswrd

BIOS passwords are only being generated if you do it manually. Just try to access your Bios and try a password that you often use. But try it only twice. Your unit will be screwed up if you do it the third time and it was the worng passowrd. or have someone probably a technician reset the CMOS battery inside the unit. This will surely remove the BIOS passowrd however your unit have to be opened physically.

Hope this helps.

My notebook has no disc drive, I want to change the order of booting from hard disk to usb disc drive, but I have forgotten the passowrd for getting into the bios, is there any other way to do this? Or...

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 alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Dear Sir I forgot bios password in lenovo g430. Computer is start. i want to fomatte pc at that time passowrd is ask i foget it so waht to do.

Disconnect all power sources, including the battery. Open the laptop and remove the CMOS battery (the little round silver thing). Hold the power button to drain any residual charge for 10 seconds. Boot the computer without the CMOS battery inserted. it should say password disabled. Reassemble the computer and you're done!

When i power on the laptop ask HDD PASSWORD SIR PLZ HOW CAN I REMOVE SIR

How to remove and unlock hard drive password? Is there any software to recover hard drive disk password? Where to download hard drive password cracker? Is it possible to reset the hard drive password?
According to Lenovo and many other manufacturers' website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.

I forget my password

First of all What password are you talking about?

If it is the BIOS-User Password, which comes at the startup then it is a serious problem and you have to go to a nearest service center of toshiba. There they will check your problem & solve it.

Last year the same happened to my laptop, i did my own research and tried many tricks, even i opened my whole laptop on my own but at last i had to report in service center and they replaced my mother-board.

Reset a password

if you mean the bios password you need to remove the bios battery for about 10 minutes, if you mean the windows log on password, then you will have to get into windows in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) and get in as administrator and delete or change the password on your user account.
