Hi Doug Cleland!, if you JUST want to clear your BIOS password because you forgot it and cant login on your PC / cannot book if you set a bios pass before boot it is quite simple ;-))
on the motherboard is a small metal batteire (looks like a button)! just carefully remove the battery, unplug the powercord from the motherboard and from the PC end! wait 10minutes and before you do wait also press the POWER ON button -> this will remove the Rest voltage from your motherboard. after like 10mins you should put in back the battery then reconnect all power cables and just turn it on and i will be sure that the BIOS password is deleted because your pc STARTS with DEFAULT settings (is no pass set)
HDD password is a security tool which prompt for password during boot.
If you forgot the HDD password then it can be disabled in BIOS settings
Incase you can't go into BIOS settings then you need to reseat Jumpers on HDD inside the Tower(On Motherboard, you ned to open it though"
Hope this helps
Man, I have the same, on different laptop. It's very hard to remove
bios main pass. If you have your motherboard sheme you can shortcircuit
correct pins in bios chip, use google to find what ones for your mb.
There is method with paraller port too. You must search, I cant help
you can remove the bios password by removing the battery wait for 10 to 15 seconds then return power on. you can also reset this by transferring the cmos clear pins from pin1-2 to pin3-4 wait for 10 seconds then return to pin1-2 then power on.
