Please help me : :' my pc is lenovo g500 and i forgot password bios who help me please


Hi,

I do google your problem and look to the lenovo G500 manual.
here's the manual says.

sources: http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/g410_g510_ug_en.pdf

BIOS password problems I forgot my password. • If you forget your user password, you must ask the system administrator to reset your user password. • If you forget your HDD password, a Lenovo authorized servicer cannot reset your password or recover data from the hard disk. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the hard disk drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service. • If you forget your administrator password, a Lenovo authorized servicer cannot reset your password. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the system board replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.


But in my own way of troubleshooting.
1. open your Lenovo G500
2. Check your motherboard and look for bios/cmos battery.
3. Remove the battery
4. Get flat screw driver then put it between two pins where the cmos battery attached.
5. Hold it for 10 to 15 sec.
6. Put the cmos battery back and the motherboard
7. Power it up and holla the bios setting has been reset to default.

Here the sample image of Lenovo G500 motherboard

I forget my lenovo 3000 y500 bios password, how do i bios open without open the cmos


Normally, you can just move a jumper or unplug the CMOS battery to clear the password. But, I found the following in the Ideapad Y500 repair manual:

"A supervisor password (SVP) protects the system information stored in the BIOS Setup Utility. The user must enter the SVP in order to get access to the BIOS Setup Utility and change the system configuration.
Attention: If the SVP has been forgotten and cannot be made available to the servicer, there is no service procedure to reset the password. The system board must be replaced for a scheduled fee."

Remove the biose password lenovo x201


I always recommend popping out the CMOS battery and then putting it back in. This resets all of the settings in the BIOS including the password. In the case of a laptop it can be a bit of work to open it, locate the battery and perform this but it is much less risky than uses the software that is available to crack the BIOS password and then remove it.

This site gives some useful software options for resetting the BIOS password:
http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html



Otherwise this is a diagram of the inside of the laptop once you remove the screws from the underside, remove the keyboard and touchpad:

Forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
