One of two ways to go about this, one is to restore defaults through BIOS it self or simply remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard, it looks like a large watch battery, about the size of a quarter, and a bit thicker

How can i reset the cmos in my ms200 all in one computer?? it shows that my hasrd drive is not working, and it is really working in other computer


Hi,

To reset the CMOS the easiest way is, remove the motherboard battery for ten minute then install it again. It will clear the CMOS. Then reset the CMOS/BIOS setup, date/ time etc. Another way to clear CMOS is, reset the CMOS Jumper in motherboard.

To detect your hard drive you can try to check by change the hard drive cables. Change the port in motherboard. Check the BIOS setup and reset it if need.

I got toshiba satellite pro l4500 when booted up it shows bios password and it wont even run cd dvd rom any ideas thanks


Hi Rickie,

In most notebooks/ laptops the BIOS password wont reset. As to reset you need to replace the jumpers or re-seat the CMOS battery. Which in notebooks are locked and if you open the notebook the warranty will be void. I would suggest to take it to the Toshiba authorized service center or local store and get it reset.

Regards,
Shrey

P.S. I tried it with my HP DV6000 just to test, the batter was easy to take out but then it wont go in, a lock was broken when it came out.

I have a Wipro Laptop. His BIOS is Phoenix. It has a CMOS password. How shall I clear the password.\?


Hi Nayanranjani.

As you trying to reset the BIOS password, let me provide the required steps.

You may reset the BIOS password by just removing and inserting the CMOS Battery.

The CMOS Battery will have the Computer date, time and also the BIOS password saved in it.

Hence, removing and re-inserting the CMOS password will reset the BIOS password.

Once the BIOS password is removed, you may assign a new BIOS password.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

How do i remove bios password on my hp 6730s?


On HP DV6000 series laptops, to clear the BIOS password, find the Cmos Battery (or RTC battery) and disconnect it from the motherboard for at least 10 minutes. This will clear the CMOS and clear the passwords. This is straight from the service manual. Once the time is over reconnect the battery and power the system back up, make sure you go right into the BIOS and reset the date and time. This is usually accomplished by striking the delete key or the F2 key during the HP splash screen.

Checksum error


Hi Oliver, the most common error related to the message,
(Bios Rom Checksum Error). Someone has left a floppy disk in the floppy drive. Once the floppy disk has been removed press the reset button on the PC, your windows will start normally. Next place to look is in your bios.
Open your manual to page 27.
Enter your bios & go to the title Advanced BIOS Features. Check First, Second & Third boot devices they should be as follows. Floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive & primary hard disk drive. If both of the above are ok than try clearing the cmos/bios by resetting the cmos jumper (JP1) location on page 5. Descriptions of page five on page 6. CMOS settings on page 9.
When your system restarts re-enter your cmos & reset up your bios settings. Lastly if none of the above has fixed the error message, than remove the cmos battery & check its voltage. It should maintain 3volts. If yours' is lower than 3volts replace the cmos battery. There is one other possible fix. It’s an option not given lightly. Flashing a cmos/bios is not recommended unless all other options have failed.

Hi - Benimur


Hi again,

If your motherboard is for a desktop, there would often be a 3 terminal jumper very near the Lithium battery marked CMOS Reset. A jumper is currently positioned shorting one end and the center, temporarily removing this jumper and moving it to the opposite end/pair would reset the CMOS/BIOS. Alternately, you can also remove the 3.0Volts coin size battery for about 30 minutes wold reset the CMOS/BIOS.

Cheers.
