    How do i reset the bios password for my lenovo a310?


    User passwords:
    Power on
    BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.

    Hard drive
    The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.

    Administrative passwords:
    Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.

    Password Recovery is a feature of Client Security Solution 6.0. This makes it possible for an end user to recover from the problem of "I forgot my Power On Password or Hard Drive Password."

    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.
