To reset the BIOS password you must take out the BIOS battery on the motherboard of the computer.

On most desktops this is not a hard thing. Simply take off the side of the case, then take out the quarter sized battery on the motherboard, wait 60 seconds then reinstall.

On a laptop the same thing must be done but I must recommend you take it to a local Tech as this is not an easy thing to do if you have never opened up your laptop.

Locked myself out of my hard drive by putting a password on it in BIOS. I cleared the admin and user pwd's, but came up with a new one for the drive. I can't remember it.


You can either remember it to use your hdd or purchase a new hdd and start again with a fresh OS then restoring your data from your backups.

ID FROZEN ON MY ACER ASPIRE V5-471. I NEVER PUT A HDD PASSWORD IN IT WHEN I BOUGHT THE LAPTOP 4 YEARS AGO.HOW CAN I FIX THAT.


Does it makes any kind of sound when you boot? Is the HDD frozen or is it password protected? If it makes a clicking sound when you boot the computer then the HDD pointer inside the HDD is stuck.
If you can get to the BIOS, you can delete any password from the BIOS. If the HDD does not shows up in the BIOS, then your HDD is probably fry.

You should try www.unlockbiosrecovery.com and for $20 they will send you a bios master password that will clear any bios passwords set. I use them in my laptop repairs quite often.They also unlock hard drives on laptops for most brands.

I have the same concern as yours I hope that the procedural that I did could help you as well.

1. removed hdd from laptop`s tray (with power OFF)
2. powered ON the laptop and entered in BIOS SETUP
3. as the hdd was removed the BIOS read at 1st ata device but i was able to select field, which had as options
4. select option and the "manual" options for the hdd appear
5. don`t change anything, remain on that page and insert the HDD drive in the tray. as it powers up the bios completed me the field vith the values for my hdd automatically.
6. go back to the field "1st ata device" and selected the option
7. go to the bios SECURITY section and in the field "HDD Password" enter a password of your choice (but remember or note it down)
8. EXIT the bios setup and SAVE CHANGES (and reboot)
9. at the HDD prompt i found now the password matched the one i entered
10. run the bios setup again and remove the hdd password for easy use purpose..

that`s it, how it did work for me. now, i believe this steps to be usefull for anyone else.
my bios type is award medallion v6.0 but i hope to work on other versions as well...

You may be able to use backdoor bios password, not all bios chips have them, but its worth a try, check HERE
IF it is a HDD password and not a bios password, buy a new HD. You would need to install a OS and drivers, but you may be able to attach the old drive in a caddy and retrieve the contents.

If this does not work for you, please write back and i am sure we will fix it
