There are two passwords in BIOS. One is start up password, the other is BIOS setting password. If you have forgotten the start up password that means you cannot open computer at all. Then the first method is the only thing you can do. Other methods can use to clear setting bios password.

Dell inspiron laptop 1545 administrator password won't unlock


Will it boot into the operating system or is it stuck at the bios password?
If it is the Windows administrator password then I'll need more information such as what version of Windows you are on. If it is Linux then let me know.

If it is stuck with a bios/boot password then you'll need to reset it by removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds. This will clear any settings in the BIOS setup.

Lost bios password on toshiba satellite P305D-S8836


Lost BIOS password?
If you can remember, it will be much better,
If not, try rebooting in safe mode as administrator(hold down F8).
Else you need to put a second disk in another PC and run some password reset utility likeWindows Password Recovery Basic. http://www.windowspasswordrecovery.net/

If all these can't solve the problem, you have to reinstall the PC.

EliteBook 8530p bios password


Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten HP BIOS password. One is forcing BIOS/CMOS to reset itself to its stored defaults by removing all power to it. The other is to use a program to either locate or identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely.
And the most easiest and convenient method for erasing dynamic BIOS/CMOS settings is to remove battery directly from the motherboard. It applies to most motherboards besides HP Elitebook BIOS. At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.

How to reset BIOS password with SpareKey?
1. Before forgot BIOS password, you have set answers to three predetermined personal identification questions.
Write down the answers to these questions and put them in a safe place, away from the computer, so that you can always access them.

2. When you cannot remember the password to access the BIOS on your computer, turn on the computer and immediately press the ESC key to display the Startup Menu. And then press the F7 key.

3. HP SpareKey wizard pops up and prompts you for the answers to the three personal identification questions. If you successfully answer the questions, you are granted access and you can reset the password.
If you do not answer the questions correctly in the three attempts, you will be locked out of your computer. And then you must contact HP for assistance.

Note: HP SpareKey cannot help you recover a Windows 7 or Vista administrator account password. It is intended solely to recover system-level passwords.

Forgot my password


Lost passwords are never good. Not all hope is lost, so long as you aren’t using the master Administrator account. You didn’t specify which operating system you were using, but this tip is for XP only, as the main Administrator account is disabled in Vista by default.First thing you’re going to do is reboot your computer. When it comes on, press the F8 key (you may need to tap this a few times, just to make sure you’re hitting it at the appropriate time). You should be greeted with a prompt for booting into Windows, select Safe Mode. When the computer finishes booting, you should see an account labeled Administrator. Try to log into this account. If no administrator password was setup when you installed Windows, it may let you right in. Otherwise, you’ll need to remember that password that you set.
Once in this account, head into the Control Panel and access the Users area. You should be able to select the account you generally use, and reset the password. If you can’t get into the main Administrator .
Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor 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.For example generally

Vaio PCG7ZIL - CAN'T REMEMBER PASSWORD-HELP!!


Log into your computer as administrator to do this. Most likely the password is Administrator, Admin or something like that and the password will be either blank or the same as the user name 'Administrator' or 'Admin'. Once logged in as administrator you can change the computer passwords and users accounts.
