How to Bypass or Remove aBIOS Password
NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a passworded Hard Drive. 3 wrongguesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lostforever.
How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing theCMOS Battery:
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOSbattery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when itis turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small batteryinside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, thecomputer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOSpassword. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experiencedworking with laptop hardware. Anyway, open up thecomputer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallicCMOS battery. Some computers have this part standing upright. Once you have located it,observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to removea CMOS battery. Make sure to power down thecomputer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they arepowered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this towork. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it backin. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power inits capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allowsenough time for them to discharge. Plug everything back in,power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well thereshould be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messagesduring bootup now, you will need to go to "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and savethe changes to fix them.

Hello

There are a couple of ways you can bypass the motherboard code

Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing the CMOS Battery:

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Finding the CMOS BatteryAnyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. Some computers have this part standing upright.

Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

If this method didn't work, try one of the methods below.

Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password using Software:

iBIOS is a freeware utility which is designed to be a whole BIOS and security suite. It has the ability to decrypt the passwords used in some of the most common BIOS makes such as Award, Phoenix, American Megatrends, IMB etc..
It also has the ability to brute force the password (known as "blasters"). However, this method is dangerous and can result in some unexpected and unwanted results.

Note: Because of this applications password cracking abilities, some antivirus software may report it as a virus/trojan. This is a false positive.

To start using !BIOS, reboot your computer and take note of the BIOS type and version you are running. For example, If your motherboard uses Award BIOS you should look for the text "Award Medallion BIOS 6.0′ or something similar.

Download !BIOS and save it to your desktop. Then, open a DOS command windows by going to Start > Run and type: cmd

Once you see a black screen in front of you, type: cd desktop
You should now see something like: C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Desktop>

Now type the name of the file you just downloaded, if you haven't changed the name just type in: bios320.exe

!BIOS - Decrypting a BIOS Password
Use the down arrow and choose "Crackers" and then press the right arrow. Using the up and down arrows, select the BIOS that the motherboard is using and press Enter.

You should now see a menu asking what you want to crack, in most cases its the Supervisor or System Passwords you want to crack, so press the 1 key on your keyboard. It will then show you another menu asking how you want it to be cracked. Option 1 is pretty good so try that first by pressing the 1 key on your keyboard. You should now have your BIOS password.

Reboot the computer, enter the BIOS and try it out.

How can i rest the lenovo bios password of model g 400


Gautam,

It seems that you have forgotten the BIOS password. If this is the case then please remove the button cell on the motherboard for a few seconds and the password would have been nullified.

If you remember the password and want to change it then at bootup press F2 and enter BIOS. Here in the Password option you would be able to change it.

  • Hello smoozie73, if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are 'OK!' Lets just say [No] for now. Bootup / Start the computer, and follow these steps: 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12 or on other "Computers, the 'Key Sequence may be [F11]..." The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg 2. Once this screen appear, you will see a 'Listing" of different set-ups. There will be instructions in the [right] Help ? area. You be using the "Arrow Keys" to (Select and Choose Items). In the first screen, there will be on the (right of the screen). 3. Set Supervisor Password = This is the "Password Setting that will prevent anyone from getting into without authorization this area that you are in now, to "Change or Configure" CMOS or BIOS setting. 4. Set User Password = This Password is use for "Logins / User Accounts... You want to "Reset or Change the Supervisor Password. Do so, and to finish; remember to use the [F10 Key] to 'Save the Changes.' Thanks for using Fix' Ya, and I hope this fix it, paul7of9

Sounds like you have a bootup password set in the bios. Press the key for getting into the bios and if it does not ask for a password then you can change the setting for bootup password.

If not then you will have to have the bios reset. In a desktop it involves unplugging the computer and either removing the battery or using the jumper to clear cmos.

On the laptop it would be unplugging it, removing the battery, accessing the internal area to remove the cmos battery to clear the cmos.

Laptop locked with key


This symbol is a Power on Password.
If you don't remember the password you have a problem, because without this password there in no way you can bootup the computer. There is no backdoor password available.
This password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password.
IBM/Lenovo say you have to replace the motherboard.

Lenovo thinkpad R51e ,when i power on the laptop it show error271


This error message is generated when the BIOS Date and Time is incorrect. Go into the BIOS configuration to change the Date and Time. When you reboot and still get the same error message then the BIOS battery is flat and needs to be replaced and the Date and Time setting needs to be change to the current Date and Time after replacing the battery.
If you cannot get into the BIOS configuration (press F1 on bootup) or you get a lock icon in the top LH corner of the screen, this is a Power on Password symbol, enter the passsword to bootup the laptop and then press F1 to get into the BIOS configuration.
