If you unplug the power adapter, take out the battery, open the memory cover, un plug the RTC battery, press the power on button to disipate any voltage, re-install cable for RTC battery, put memory cover back on, battery back in, power adapter plug back in, boot up, cmos checksum error enter set-up utility, set date, time etc.

How to reset or remove BIOS password


There are four common categories of solutions to remove or reset a BIOS password and here are the details on how to go about resetting your BIOS password.<br /> <br /><b>Manufacturer Backdoor BIOS Password</b><br /><br />Most of the BIOS makers have set a backdoor password on the older computer models. That is the master password for BIOS. To reset BIOS passwords first you need to check the manufacturer of your computer's BIOS. Most computers have BIOS include AMI, IBM, Award, and Phoenix. These are the most common BIOS. You can unlock your locked BIOS using this master password. It works, no matter what the user sets the password to. Many popular computer and laptop manufacturers such as HP and DELL lock the BIOS because they want to protect their machine's most sensitive areas (those areas which have warranty) from their customers. These passwords are usually used by computer technicians for testing and repairing. <br /><br /><b>Reset the jumper that holds the password<br /></b><br />Open the computer and locate on the motherboard the BIOS password jumper. The jumper is usually jumper 1 and often labeled as PSWD, PWD, CLRPWD, CLEAR, JCMOS1, CLR, CLEAR CMOS, PASSWD, or PASSWORD. Normally you would have 3 pins and to reset the password you just need to put the jumper on the 2 and 3 pins leaving pin 1 empty. After you move the jumper, turn the computer on to clear the password, then once password removed turn it off and put the jumper back to its original position.<br /><br /><b>Removing the CMOS Battery to reset the BIOS to default</b><br /><br />Switch off your computer, and open up the case. You'll see a circular metallic silver item on motherboard. This is called CMOS Battery. Remove it carefully, and leave it out for about 2 minutes. This act will remove the CMOS memory which contains BIOS password. Set the CMOS battery back and switch on the computer. Restore the CMOS configuration as default. Your BIOS password has been cleared now. <br /><br /><b>Using third party software utility to reset BIOS password</b><br /><br />To reset BIOS you can use third party software like Kill CMOS which wipes out CMOS, or CmosPwd which is a BIOS utility. Hiren's Boot CD has a few programs including the above two that will help you to reset the password. Here is a link to Hirens Boot CD website <a href="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/">http://www.hirensbootcd.org/</a>. To download the latest version, click on the Download link on the left side and go to the last page. You will need a CD writer to put the content on a blank CD.

I have a acer laptop and i cant remember the password at all. how can i fix the problem at home ?


I'm assuming the password is for your windows login and not a BIOS password.
You can try a reinstall but if you haven't backed up your system you may loose your data.
You can also check out this site for free windows password recovery tools:

See if your unit qualifies for HP's limited warranty, mine did and they repaired it for free.
HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000.

How do I unlock hp 530 laptop?


Inside of the computer you will see a small yellow(likely) button. Press and hold for about 5-7 seconds and then try, This is the CMOS reset button. If that does not work you can always remove the battery for a few seconds and that will work. This will also reset any bios settings you have saved to default.

There is a power on password in my laptop hp cant get it to boot


It is a BIOS password. If you do not remeber it the only solution is to remove the round battery from the mother board and reinsert it. Turn on the laptop. It will directly take you to the BIOS scree. Restore the default bios setting. Save and exit and your laptop will turn on

Reset cmos password for compaq nc6400


Assuming you can get to the CMOS button cell battery, remove all power, pull the button cell out for about a minute, then put it back. The next boot-up should load right to setup, or to an error screen telling that CMOS is corrupt and to run setup.

HP dv6000, laptop will not start up, screen stays blank and the lights and fan turn off about every 20secs and it just keeps doing the same thing over and over again, sounds like its starting up then OFF,...


Hi civic-95-uk ,

Try performing power drain steps on thenotebook:

1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook.
2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute.
3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery and try starting the computer.
Even if the issue is same then perform Hard drive self test from BIOS.

1. Turn on the notebook and press F10 immediately. Which will lead you to the BIOS setup screen.

2. Click on Diagnisis and choose hard drive self test. Perform both the short test and long test.
