There is usually a 3 pin assembly with two of them connected with a jumper. They are labels pin 1,2 & 3.

you connect the middle pin to 1 or 3 for normal operation and the opposite to reset the bios and remove the password.

start looking for them near the motherboard battery and bios chip.

if you change the jumper on the wrong pins then it is very unlikely you will do any damage, just put it back to how it was before that.

My son changed his password on his netbook. now he doesn't remember it. he cannot log in at all. he can do absolutely nothing with it. how can we fix this?


at Windows XP's Welcome Screen, simply press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys sequence together twice, and you will be shown a Log On to Windows menu where you can specify the User Name and Password. In the User Name text box, key in "Administrator" (without quotes) and leave the Password field blank. Then press Enter or click on OK. If there it is not a password protected Administrator account, or blank password is set, then you will be able to access the Windows with full administrative privileges as Administrator.

Then simply click start > control panel > User accounts then select your sons account and click edit then click remove password. once done simply log off and then log in to your sons account and no password will be asked for. If your son is the root administrator then you will need to get software to reset the password for you

Net bios password work around


Hello,
There will be a back door password , password can reset for some model in dell platform.A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. Many big name computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP lock the customers out of this area because they don't want the customer changing anything and potentially damaging the machine (which the manufacturer may have to warranty). However, when someone like a computer technician or hardware enthusiast needs to make some hardware changes to the computer, they will need to access the BIOS. Here are some methods to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

Unable to change bios settings


are you sure your are exiting the bios saving your changes?
if for some reason you are unable to save your changes it is possible that the cmos battery is going bad, replace the battery and test.

another reason why you may not be able to make any changes is because you may not be a supervisor or accessing the bios as a supervisor but as a user. you may have set a bios supervisor password. if you don't remember what that was you may have to reset the password:

to reset your password do the following:

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Open the computer case.
  3. Locate the blue J8C2 Flash/PWD jumper block on the motherboard.
  4. Place the jumper on pins 2 and 3 for clearing the passwords.
  5. Turn on the computer. Wait for an audible beep from the computer. A message appears stating that the NVRAM and password have been cleared.
  6. Turn off the computer.
  7. Place the jumper back on pins 1 and 2 for normal operation.
  8. Place the lid back on the case.
  9. Turn on the computer.
good luck!

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how


Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.
