The simplest way to do it is to remove the cmos battery, but this is inside the case, so I'm not sure if you want to try that. Do a Google search on "reset bios password" and you'll find several sites that will walk you through some of the more common fixes.

You can remove your bios password by reseting your CMOS battery or jamper. You need to open your notebook remove first the battery and all screw at the back of your notebook. You can see there a CMOS battery together with the CMOS jamper. Just read it you can read CLRSCR which means clear cmos, just pull it with in 10 seconds and insert it back. Now you are done to reset bios.

Reset bios password


Hi, its very easy to reset password for bios.

You have two methods to rest on two different conditions.

First if you want to re-set in normal mode and a second thing if you have forgotten the password.

First of all enter into Bios Setup then Security and Reset your password.

Second if you have forgotten your password and you need to reset without power on your computer take these steps;

1. Uncover your computer
2. See a jumper near to hard connector. This jumper sets on two legs total of three and one leg free.
3. Changer jumper side ... It sets on free leg and then one leg will free.
4. Now, starts on your computer, it will give you a message. Now follow the message and accept changes for Bios and press enter.
5. Once again switch off your computer.
6. Reset jumper on the same place and cover your computer again.
7. Start your computer enter into Bios without any password. Now you can set your password from security tab again.

Problem: You do not have access to change the settings in BIOS? . Have bought a...


There are two passwords in BIOS. One is start up password, the other isBIOS setting password. If you have forgotten the start up password thatmeans you cannot open computer at all. Then the first method is theonly thing you can do. Other methods can use to clear setting password.
==①:Motherboard Battery Discharge==
The common way toreset start up password is discharge Motherboard Battery. Most of thecurrent motherboard BIOS is using the button batteries to provideelectric power.That means if there is no electricity, the informationit contains will be lost. When it’s on power again, BIOS will set backto its original state, of course, there will be no BIOS passwords. Butyou will lose your setting at the same time.
What we need to dois to power off computer, open the computer box, and then unplug thepower plug of the computer to make sure that it is no electricity atall. Then locate the white silver button battery on the motherboard.Remove the battery carefully. Perhaps 30 seconds later, put back thebattery.
After put back the computer box then power on, thesystem will prompt “CMOS Checksum Error-Defaults Loaded”. That meansCMOS errors detected during inspections, had been included in thesystem default, BIOS password cracking success!
On somemotherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making itdifficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative.Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clearthe BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you willknow where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on themotherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to bethe case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper.This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannotlocate this jumper, you might short both of the points where thebattery connects to the motherboard.
==② : Backdoor BIOS Password==
Eachmotherboard manufacturer has set a backdoor password in order tofacilitate the provision of technical support. The backdoor password isa BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOSpassword to. These passwords are typically used for testing andmaintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwordsfrom time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Reported AMIbackdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW,BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Onereported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reportedAward backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595,598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARDSW, 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

Epox central
Freetech PosterieI
Will iwill
Jetway spooml
Packard Bell bell9
QDI QDI
Siemens SKY_FOX
SOYO SY_MB
TMC BIGO
ToshibaToshiba
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 realbackdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored atF000:EC60.
==③: Software Crack==
There are a lotsoftwares to test systems or start up password, but they need to run onWindows. So it is only used to reset BIOS setting password.
!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
Ifall else fails, you might be going to lose some money for technician.But they will use these same methods, try hard by yourself.

Bios password


There are several web sites pertaining to be able to get you into your laptop/PC if you forget your password.
Personally, I find it hard to believe that a person can forget a password as important as that and in my experience most forgotten passwords were not forgotten at all but people aquiring the equipment without the password however, try this link:

Supervisor password


A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.
