A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. Many big name computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP lock the customers out of this area because they don’t want the customer changing anything and potentially damaging the machine (which the manufacturer may have to warranty). However, when someone like a computer technician or hardware enthusiast needs to make some hardware changes to the computer, they will need to access the BIOS. Here are some methods to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a pass worded Hard Drive. 3 wrong guesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lost forever.
How to 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 a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.
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 boot up now, you will need to go to “Load BIOS Defaults” in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.


Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

How do I get into my bios when F2 won't work


Try tapping the Delete key instead.

It say here you use F2, but you have to do a complete shutdown rather than a restart. You have to keep tapping as soon as you see a logo or life!

    My Acer One was given to me and I need the Bios password. Any Ideas???


    The Acer Aspire One has built-in BIOS recovery which can be used to flash its BIOS. Once the BIOS has been flashed, all BIOS settings are reset to default which gets rid of the BIOS password. This procedure has been posted Aug 2008 on macles for friends of the aspire one to address the BIOS failure that frequented early versions of the Aspire One BIOS. I have used the procedure on my own Acer Aspire One when it bricked in the fall of 2008 and once more in 2009 to install a later BIOS version. Acer also posted Feb 2009 the similar procedure on AcerSupport but has since removed it. Be aware that you must follow the procedure carefully and do so at your own risk. Here is the macles link.

    Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5535 with password in the bios


    Unfortunately, if he put a sysetm BIOS password and doesn't remember it, you need to contact Acer's website.

    You can have a electronics technician jumper all electrical current to wipe out the BIOS password, but contact acer first to make sure that there is not another method.
