  • odai Mar 18, 2008

    Something finally came on the screen..A series of loops, one line says ..No operating system found..I then got to a blue screen which says windows sutup but when I insert my winxp CD, a message came back saying no hard disk available..I take the hard disk from another computer which is working fine only to recieve same message on windows setup...No hard disk available.

    A message appears on screen:

    \windows\system32\config\system is corrupt and

    C 0000221 unknown hard error

    \systemroot\system32\ntdll.dll

    If "not booting ... black screen" then it is not of any use resetting the bios.
    Probably your motherboard must be changed
    If the motherboard do not boot at all you cannot fix it resetting bios settings, this will just load default options for bios, but bios must work already.
    If you cannot identify bios reste jumper, take out the coin shape battery and put it back, it has exactly the same effect.
    You may need to change the motherboard or some other component.

    you need to check HDD slave/master settings, check the jumper at the back of hd.
    On some bios you also need to do hd detection first, and then save bios settings,
    cheers

How to Reset a BIOS Password.


Desktop Machines.

In desktop machines its very simple.
Just remove the BIOS Battery from the motherboard and place it back after 1mint.

Laptop Machines.

It is some what difficult in laptop machines. Because it is not an eassy job to remove BIOS battery from the mother board. So i'm just explaining some most commen methods.
1. Using a Backdoor BIOS Password

The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.

AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:
Manufacturer BIOS Password VOBIS & IBM merlin Dell Dell Biostar Biostar Compaq Compaq Enox xo11nE Epox central Freetech Posterie IWill iwill Jetway spooml Packard Bell bell9 QDI QDI Siemens SKY_FOX SOYO SY_MB TMC BIGO Toshiba Toshiba Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.

2. Resetting the BIOS Password using Software :

!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.

CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:
  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI
3. Resetting the BIOS Password using Hardware :

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it.

4. Vendor Specific Solutions for Resetting the BIOS Password :
Resetting a Dell BIOS Password For information on how to recover a Dell BIOS password, please refer to How do I reset Dell BIOS password?
Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.
Resetting an IBM ThinkPad BIOS Password For information on how to recover an IBM Thinkpad BIOS password, please refer to How do I reset an IBM ThinkPad BIOS password?
Resetting an IBM Aptiva BIOS Password Some IBM Aptiva's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you press both mouse buttons repeatedly while booting the system.
Resetting an Acer BIOS Password For information on how to recover an Acer BIOS password, please refer to How do I reset an Acer BIOS password?

I cannot recover my bios password could someone help plz?


Hi,

Most motherboards have a jumper switch usually situated close to the CMOS battery. The jumper usually connects over 2 pins with an open pin next to these. By moving the jumper over to the open & center pin you will reset all BIOS settings, including your BIOS password. Move the jumper back to its original position before turning your PC on.
In some instances you will find no BIOS jumper. In such a case you can clear the password by removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard for a few seconds and then replacing it.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

I updated the bios and now it will not boot up


There is NO real reason why you cannot reflash your bios back to the way it was.... You simply need to find out what type your, bios is... and there are many programs that will address your BIOS and re-flash it. This is unless your BIOS is so broken that the machine will NOT even read a DVD memory stick or driver at all. What happens if you try again?
Some links below... all about it.

will try to make a site with a tutorial to reset the tmp chip .. i think it works on every ibm notebook
here is a picture from an IBM X41 tablet i reseted the pass today
http://ug1.kw.cx/ug/0257/1549/123784929_full,r,470×470.jpg
you have to put the screwdriver between the 2 pins to contact them .. and now power on ya machine and go to the bios … you will receive a message with an security chip error or something like that
this chip was on the bottom of the mainboard … i think the T Notebooks (T40 , 42 , 43 , R50, R51 have the chip under the touchpad
will share this here for ya guys
