The default setting for the bios are: set jumper on pins 1 & 2. To clear them switch it to 2 & 3 for 20-30 seconds and then return to default settings. Hope this is what you needed. Good Luck !

How to reset or remove BIOS password


There are four common categories of solutions to remove or reset a BIOS password and here are the details on how to go about resetting your BIOS password.<br /> <br /><b>Manufacturer Backdoor BIOS Password</b><br /><br />Most of the BIOS makers have set a backdoor password on the older computer models. That is the master password for BIOS. To reset BIOS passwords first you need to check the manufacturer of your computer's BIOS. Most computers have BIOS include AMI, IBM, Award, and Phoenix. These are the most common BIOS. You can unlock your locked BIOS using this master password. It works, no matter what the user sets the password to. Many popular computer and laptop manufacturers such as HP and DELL lock the BIOS because they want to protect their machine's most sensitive areas (those areas which have warranty) from their customers. These passwords are usually used by computer technicians for testing and repairing. <br /><br /><b>Reset the jumper that holds the password<br /></b><br />Open the computer and locate on the motherboard the BIOS password jumper. The jumper is usually jumper 1 and often labeled as PSWD, PWD, CLRPWD, CLEAR, JCMOS1, CLR, CLEAR CMOS, PASSWD, or PASSWORD. Normally you would have 3 pins and to reset the password you just need to put the jumper on the 2 and 3 pins leaving pin 1 empty. After you move the jumper, turn the computer on to clear the password, then once password removed turn it off and put the jumper back to its original position.<br /><br /><b>Removing the CMOS Battery to reset the BIOS to default</b><br /><br />Switch off your computer, and open up the case. You'll see a circular metallic silver item on motherboard. This is called CMOS Battery. Remove it carefully, and leave it out for about 2 minutes. This act will remove the CMOS memory which contains BIOS password. Set the CMOS battery back and switch on the computer. Restore the CMOS configuration as default. Your BIOS password has been cleared now. <br /><br /><b>Using third party software utility to reset BIOS password</b><br /><br />To reset BIOS you can use third party software like Kill CMOS which wipes out CMOS, or CmosPwd which is a BIOS utility. Hiren's Boot CD has a few programs including the above two that will help you to reset the password. Here is a link to Hirens Boot CD website <a href="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/">http://www.hirensbootcd.org/</a>. To download the latest version, click on the Download link on the left side and go to the last page. You will need a CD writer to put the content on a blank CD.

Is asking for password when coms on forgot it


There is usually a jumper on the motherboard that you can remove to clear BIOS settings including password if the password is a request of the BIOS. If it is a Windows or other operating system that is asking for password you are probably going to have to reload operating system. Look on motherboard for small jumper with the word BIOS imprinted next to it. Make sure power is off, remove jumper and restart pc. When BIOS comes up do not set password protection. Shut pc down, replace jumper and your bios settings should be fine. Good luck

To reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you cannot locate the reset jumper, just remove the BIOS battery for approx. 30 mins.
This will discharge the battery voltage in the BIOS, then insert the BIOS battery back and you can go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

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.

Disabling Bios Writing Protection


Sometimes the BIOS calls this protection some sort of "virus protection" as past viruses, like the CIH virus would tend to overwrite motherboard BIOS' with jargon, bricking the motherboard. Try disabling any onboard "virus" protection and try flashing your BIOS again.

Based on the information that you gave us...You can't access your BIOS for reconfiguration. To go to BIOS settings, try to press DEL or F2 button when you see the LOGO of the manufacturer.. Then change its Boot Sequence: 1st Boot - Optical Drive..2nd Boot- Floppy (if there's one) and 3rd Boot - Hard Drive. If your BIOS is protected then you need to shutdown your computer, 1. remove the powercable, 2. open your Desktop CPU, 3. look for the CR2032 Button battery, 4. locate the jumper near this Battery with CLEAR CMOS label. 5. change the setting of this jumper by removing the jumper and mount it on the other setting. Maintain for 5 seconds and then remove it back from its original setting.. Note: dont forget the original setting of this CLEAR CMOS jumper. Also never to POWER ON your Desktop while the jumper is at CLEAR CMOS setting. This will destroy your motherboard. 6. Connect the power cables and power ON your Desktop and you will encounter an error on BIOS setting. press DEL button or F2 to configure BIOS. 7. Then change BOOT SEQUENCE of your Desktop to boot to Optical Drive or CDROM first and then press F10 to Save and Exit. ..................... Check your keyboard if its working well otherwise get a GOOD Known keyboard or a new one.
