When you reset the CMOS, you not only reset the password, but all of the settings in the CMOS. You'll need to (at a minimum) go into the setup at boot and turn on the integrated peripherals (such as your IDE or SATA controllers) and then tell it to automatically search for hard drives. After you've reset all of those settings, it should then boot up.

Hp compaq power-on password


If you do not know the "power-on" password for the computer, you have to open the case and find the jumper labeled "Clear CMOS". When you find that jumper, move the jumper from its present position on say pins 2-3 to pins 1-2 and power-on the system. it may ask if you want to clear the power-on password or the CMOS in general, or it may appear to do nothing. Wait 10 seconds or so and power off the computer. Move the jumper back to its original position and power-on the computer. It may ask if you want to reset the CMOS settings by entering the BIOS and then select Default System Settings and save the settings and restart the system. This should allow you to boot the system after having erased the "Power-on Password".

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.

Bios boot password on a Toshiba c655-s5049


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
hope this helps dont forget to vote!

How do you get the password off of the


There are two ways to reset the boot or the bios password:

1.By removing the CMOS battery

You have to shut down the computer , disconnect the power plug and open up the unit and locate the CMOS battery ( which usually looks like a coin) . Carefully lift the battery out of its socket and set it aside.Leave the battery our of the computer for about 20 to 30 minutes and then return it to its socket. Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.
It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

2. By using the motherboard jumper


Shut down your computer and disconnect the power plug. Identify where the jumpers are located. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc. Then check the present pin location and the location of the jumper on those pins to determine their default location. As an example, the default location on the above motherboard is to have the jumper across pins #1 and #2. Write it down! Next, move the jumpers from the their default location (Example: from across pins #1 and #2 as above) and then place the jumper across pins #2 and #3.Leave the jumper in place for 20 to 30 seconds and then return it to its default location.Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.Next, move the jumpers from the their default location (Example: from across pins #1 and #2 as above) and then place the jumper across pins #2 and #3.Leave the jumper in place for 20 to 30 seconds and then return it to its default location.Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.
It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

I was forgot my assus motherboard bios password can any body help? without open the cabinet give me solution


There is no solution with out getting in the cabinet and removing the CMOS battery or moving the CMOS jumper on the CMOS pins. Desktop computers have a password reset built onto their motherboards. This reset area has three pins with a jumper on two of the pins, when you need to reset the cmos (and get rid of a password) this jumper has to be moved over to the pin next to it and the computer powered up to reset the cmos, then the computer gets powered down and the jumper placed back in the normal position.

Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios password to default on an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop? I have an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop. It is booting but it cant go beyond bios boot and i cant enter setup as it is...


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds
