Remove the battery or slip a business card between the contacts. let it sit for about 5 minutes.

don't set a password in the future.

    To answer your question specifically, the default BIOS password is no password.



    As a volunteer question catcher at FixYa.com, I sometimes answer dozens of questions per hour, and I see stuff in that isnt there. For that reason, I missed on your question.



    I'm sorry.

    Have you set a "backdoor" password? Do you know what you are asking? Do you know what a BIOS password is or does?



    A BIOS password allows one of two things ...thing one ... lock the BIOS (generally used in corporate settings to prevent employees from changing the settings of company computers) ... thing two ... to require a password to log onto the computer. This method of security is very infrequently used today because it can be easily beaten and with the introduction of XP, Vista, 2000, and 7, logon security is much improved so what is the point of using a BIOS pass?



    Now then, you started out by saying you forgot your BIOS password. Then you wanted to know what the Default password was. Now you want a "backdoor" password.



    My friend, this is really starting to sound like a stolen laptop. If this is the case, I suggest you find another line of work. If you truly want some information and don't know what to ask, I will try to help. I have used the mud method of information collection in the past (Throw enough up on the wall and some will stick). This method is ineffectual. Please be specific and direct when you try to ask a question here. Be upfront if you don't know what the problem is - describe the symptoms. Someone will try to help.



    You can maximize the benefit of this site for all users by following the guidelines the owners of this site have established. Be mindful that the majority of folk who catch questions here are honest and sincere and genuinely want to help, in addition to being unpaid volunteers.

Hi I am having a ACER TRAVELMATE 4720 LAPTOP I forgot the CMOS password kindly help me..


when I have had this issue in the shop, we would open the bottom of the laptop , find the cmos battery (looks like a watch battery) and short out its terminals for a minute or so. this will reset the bios to defaults, and likely dump any passwords set in the bios. if this helps you leave some feedback. Cheers

Forgot my bios password please help benny


There are a number of reasons why we might set a password to protect our BIOS from changes. The problem is that we only need to go in there once in a blue moon, making the password easy to forget, locking everyone out. I had a situation many years ago where a colleague suggested the purchase of a new motherboard because they couldn’t remember the password. I got that little bit more frustrated with my job that day.
There are various options you can use to get back into your BIOS. All of them reset the BIOS back to default values, so make sure you’ve tried all of your regular passwords before attempting these methods. I have tried to keep it brief…
Newer Computers: Most newer motherboards have a jumper on them, which you can change the position of to reset the BIOS. Find your motherboard manual or search for the motherboards model number in Google. You want to find a diagram showing what and where various components and jumpers are on the motherboard. The manual should tell you which jumper needs to be changed.
Once you have changed the jumper, return the jumper back to its original position while the machine is off. You don’t want it to keep resetting itself. Turn on the machine and go into the BIOS. All options will be open to you.
Older Computers: The quickest way to get into the BIOS of an older computer that has been password protected is to remove the battery. The battery keeps the system clock going. Once you remove it, you can put it back in and start the computer.
When you start your computer, you will find your BIOS has been reset to its default values. You are now able to change any settings you want.
General: Some motherboard manufacturers have a secret password that will work, overwriting the password already locking the computer. These are readily available online with a bit of a search. I think this is becoming less common with time.
For more information on the methods above, tech-faq has a great article which goes more in depth.

Same problem but have got acer travelmate 4150


Check on motherbord again you can find cmos cell it is look like round battery cell.
Then pull it for 10 minutes so all bios settings are defaults.
Also you can clear bios with jumper find jumper on motherbord it has 3 -pin 1-2-3 right now jumper is in 1-2 position set it to 2-3 position so your bios is clear.Then again set it to it's original position.
then it not ask for password.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
