Setup password reset


It sounds like you need to remove the battery on the motherboard. Bios has the ability to add a password. Removal of the battery will in most cases reset to factory defaults and remove the password?

Skip bios password




Try this Method:

One of the most common methods to reset the BIOS password is to remove or discharge the battery on the computer's motherboard. If the power to the battery is lost or drained, the BIOS configuration will be reset to the factory state with no password. System settings made to the BIOS will also be lost.
Step 1 - Turn off the computer and ensure it has no external power (ie unplug the power cable. If it has a battery, remove it).
Step 2 - Open the computer's case or box.
Step 3 - Locate the computer's motherboard and look for the white silver button battery on the motherboard.
Step 4 - If the battery is not soldered to the motherboard, remove it carefully and wait for approximately 30 seconds.
Step 5 - Put the computer case back together and boot the computer.
Step 6 - If the "CMOS Checksum Error-Defaults Loaded" error message is displayed, the BIOS password has been reset.
In the event the CMOS battery is soldered to the computer's motherboard, you will want to seek a different method to reset the BIOS password on the computer.

I lost my power-on password. What can I do?


remove the laptop battery, then remove the entire case of the laptop to reveal the battery on the motherboard. There is a 50-50 chance that it is removable. If so, just pop out the motherboard battery (looks like a watch battery) and wait a few minutes, and re-install and re-assemble your laptop.

Should remove any password that comes on before your computer boots.

If the password you are referring to is your windows password, then locate a pc-tech to reset it for you.

I have a sony pcg-grt360 laptop, and I need to install XP from external cd-rom - I can not get into the bios to make the changes to select boot sequence - I need to remove the existing password


Unfortunately this laptop uses the restrictive style of BIOS password. Meaning if you can remove the cmos battery there is a good chance it will not forget the password.

Unfortunately the only way to truly clear it is to replace the whole motherboard which is a nightmare, especially with an older machine like this.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the BIOS password / remember it? I assume that is what is going on, correct?

Please let me know, just reply to my answer here...

Thanks
Tim

It is bios password.

For that you have to open back cover of laptop.
Then find motherbord pull CMOS cell from motherbord for 10 minutes then put again to it's position.
Then it not ask for password.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

How to remove power on password? model# HP dv3-1075us thanks


do u mean to remove the power to reset the password because u don't know the password, if this is the case, you need to remove the internal cmos battery inside on the motherboard then put it back in, this should reset the password, if you want the box that comes up asking you for a password, then you need to go into the bios, and look for password, and disable it, to go into bios, when your laptop is booting up look for press F2, F12, F5, to enter setup, each laptop is different, might be F8, F9.

I have a staellite pro a200 and its asking for hdd1 password . and i need some help on this or the password if possibal. thank you r.s.hussain


Is this before or after your OS boots up? PW crackers such as OPHcrack will give you most or all OS passwords; BIOS-set passwords can be reset with boot-level tools on external media as long as the machine will boot from them or you can reset the BIOS to boot from them- if I remember, you can password the HDD in the BIOS independently of the BIOS PW protection. If you cannot access the BIOS, you'll have to open the case, remove the motherboard battery, and possibly manually reset on the MB.

Hp compaq nx8220 - Administrator password cannot be reset


If this issue started with a motherboard error that appeared to be a faulty CMOS battery and then it started incorrectly detecting your memory and now is asking for a password it could be a faulty motherboard. If you are 110% you or anyone else has set a password on that laptop then I would say your motherboard needs to be replaced. It is a difficult process to reset admin passwords on most laptops due to a security chip that will prevent the trick of removing the battery from working. In all honestly if no one has set a password and the motherboard THINKS someone has then even if you reset the password you will still have issues. There is a small chance your CPU or RAM could be defective. But, again going back to it saying you have a password set that was never set. It just yells faulty motherboard unless someone has set a password without you knowing.

Password


that is because the password in question that you are trying to get past is the BIOS password most likely. Verify that your computer is turned off, remove power cord from back of computer, and find the jumper near the Bios chip on the motherboard. It will usually be close to the battery ( another option, temporarily remove the battery for about 30 seconds, then replace the battery into its proper position ). Be careful when you do this as some battery sockets are a pain to work with. Anyway in nearly all cases, the Bios reset jumper is located very close to both the battery and the bios chip ( firmware ). Removing the Bios reset jumper and positioning it one pin over from the initial position will usually reset the bios and get rid of the bios password requirement. Always put the bios reset jumper back into its initial position before re-appying power to the motherboard. Be careful not to leave anything loose lying around on the motherboard or in the case, else you might fry the motherboard..
Once you have successfully managed to get past the Bios password, then you should see the computer start to boot up normally and prior to Windows boot up and in the Bios routine you can configure the computer to boot to CD first. In many more modern situations, the motherboard is already configured that way.

PASSWORD PROBLEMS


Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
