1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

Caveat: All settings are set back to factory standard.
You'll have to enter a correct date/time and change the settings to your needs.

Note: pls strictly keep to the sequence.
Re-starting with the main battery and or RTC-battery inserted will spoil the job.

    I could not break the BIOS password. I forgot the password.


    BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

    1. using software 2. using hardware.

    I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

    !BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
    You can download it here:
    http://www.syschat.com/download120.html

    CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
    http://www.syschat.com/download121.html&act=down

    You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

    Good Luck!

    I want to remove a ASUS Eeepc 4g bios password which i forgot please guide me thanks.


    http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_ASUS_Bios.php can calculate a bios master password for your ASUS notebook for $20 and they guarantee it to work. The bios master password will clear the currently set bios password, giving you full access to bios setup. I repair laptops and I use them when I get a laptop with an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password and they have always worked for me.

    I forgot the security password


    here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

    For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
    For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
    pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
    Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
    It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
    then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
    Then it not want password.

    And if u tell about windows password
    Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

    then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
    But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
