Easiest way to wipe clean the Bios password is as follows:

  • Perform a power drain by removing laptop battery pack and/or docking station power supply and hold power button down for 10 seconds
  • Locate the CMOS battery (usually under the smallest panel on the bottom of the laptop)
  • Remove CMOS battery for 20 minutes (20 is arbitrary can wait longer if you wish)
  • Replace CMOS battery and panel
  • Replace battery pack and/or replace to docking station
  • Power up
The Bios password should now be removed and you should be able to boot with no issues. Thank you for using Fixya and please remember to return to rate this answer.

Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords

Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords

One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords

Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers

Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:

Manufacturer - BIOS Password:
VOBIS & IBM - merlin
Dell - Dell
Biostar - Biostar
Compaq - Compaq
Enox - xo11nE
Epox - central
Freetech - Posterie
IWill - iwill
Jetway - spooml
Packard Bell - bell9
QDI - QDI
Siemens - SKY_FOX
SOYO - SY_MB
TMC - BIGO
Toshiba - Toshiba

Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.

SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

for removing bios password you must have to remove cimos bettery for few mnuts but for doing this you have to open case of laptop
and it is not adviceable because your notebook is new one
so find any service station if yor laptop is in warranty period or you may lose your warranty
there isn't any other way to clear cmos without opening case of your laptop and remove cmos bettery
unless you will get cmos password but as u said you didn't put password in your laptop it might be possible that your notebook manufacture him self had put any password in cmose as a company policy
in that case also you must have to go to them

SOURCE: bios password

is there not a jumper on the motherboard to reset bios? you could also try to remove the bios battery (a watch-type battery located directly on the motherboard)

you can flash bios most commonly by downloading the bios update to a floppy, and then booting with the floppy in the drive, but if you do it wrong, the end result will be a very expensive paperweight, hence flashing bios should be a last resort...

SOURCE: Gateway MX6030 bios/boot password reset

How long did you leave the battery out?
To discharge the BIOS you need to short out the battery contacts, or disconnect the battery for 1/2+ hours.
If this does not work the it is near impossible to remove because the password would be stored on an EEPROM chip.
Check with Gateway, they might suggest a motherboard replacement just like IBM.

Enter password when turned on msi notebook


There are many password options on computers.Windows PasswordDisk Encryption passwordHDD password (Set in BIOS)BIOS config password (Set in BIOS)Boot password (Set in BIOS)

If you have your boot order to boot to CD/DVD before HDD then you can download the Hiren Boot CD, burn it to disc and use one of the BIOS password wipers available.


Alternate method, some laptops will be easier than others. You can open the laptop up and remove the CMOS battery for about 30 seconds to reset all BIOS settings to defaults. The battery will look like a watch battery but about the size of a quarter. or a round disc with a couple wires coming out. Google "CMOS battery for images" Start by openingn the back panels and you may get lucky and have easy access to the battery or you may need to remove either the front or rear body completely.

I have a sony pcg-grt360 laptop, and I need to install XP from external cd-rom - I can not get into the bios to make the changes to select boot sequence - I need to remove the existing password


Unfortunately this laptop uses the restrictive style of BIOS password. Meaning if you can remove the cmos battery there is a good chance it will not forget the password.

Unfortunately the only way to truly clear it is to replace the whole motherboard which is a nightmare, especially with an older machine like this.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the BIOS password / remember it? I assume that is what is going on, correct?

Please let me know, just reply to my answer here...

Thanks

Older Toshiba laptopsmag-glass_10x10.gif can be convinced to boot without their power-on BIOS password by attaching a dongle to the parallel port which crosses a number of the pins. The pin out is:
