SOURCE: HDD PASSWORD problem

I have had this happen to me too, and found no other way to resolve this other than just reformat the hdd and reinstall the OS. If you search further, you might be able to find a simpler fix; but if not, reinstalling your Operating System will definitely fix your issue.

This is a BIOS or HDD password. I'm assuming you cannot get into "setup"right when you fist boot the system? You will probably have to flash the bios or reformat the hard drive (or both) These are more advanced procedures, I recommend checking craigslist for a local PC technician.

Bios password reset


Usually if you open it and remove the battery for a few seconds...(30 or so ) ..in normal mode should remove the password cause the BIOS should reset to the factory settings ..when you cut the power..and delete all settings ..But ..there are laptops ...that will not reset ..cause they either have a separate power for the memory ..or ..the memory type used to store that info ..is not needing power to store them and remember..and in this case ..you either have to contact the manufacturer and ask for a back door master password ..and go in a disable this one ..or ..upgrade BIOS ..or reinstall it ..which is a tricky operation ...and risky ..or ..try to see if you can avoid making changes to bios ..for example ..if you want to reinstall the operation system ..and you need to rearrange the boot order ...use the F12 or F11 key instead...the one designated for the boot menu ..and just pick the cd /dvd or the usb device and hit enter ..and will work ..with no changes on bios..
If you really need to make changes on BIOS settings ..than you should try to get in side it ..and remove the battery for a few seconds..and this will reset to factory defaults ..and will probably erase the password..or ..at least you will default the settings ..and if it is a matter of recognizing new component (hardware ) this will work ..
by the way ..if the battery is not removable ..look for the pins for clr cmos..They should be visible and need to be shorted with a jumper ..and same way ..a few seconds..and this will clear the cmos (bios ) memory

Resetting BIOS password


If you have loast the password, to reset the BIOS password you need to remove temporarily the CMOS battery , so to reset BIOS settings.

Some model may be using NV Ram, in that case removing the battery is not enough.

The battery is located on the lower side on the motherboard.

On many DELL models the battery can be accessed from the side of DVD slot, battery slot, or RAM slot, without disassemblying the laptop.

On some model you may need complete disassembly (eg. Dell Le series).

The battery usually looks like a couple of coin batteries wrapped in plastic and connected to motherboard by a two wires connector.

Before disassemblying or removing covers, always unplug adapter and remove battery.

Several Dell Laptop can be set to use NV Ram to store the password.
In this case the problem cannot be solved removing primary battery, then accessing and removing CMOS battery for few minutes.

If you still cannot reset you have two way out.

Disassemble completely and access the NVRAM microswitch, or contact Dell and get master password.

You can also try one of this standard Dell factory CMOS password:

Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4"post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case and hold it for 25 -30 seconds. Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup.

How do i reset the bios password



How to recover your forgotten laptop BIOS password? There are 3 methods, each method has its strength and weakness but I am going to talk about the 2 easy methods that works across the board for everyone. Here they are:
Method 1 – Remove BatteryFor desktop user, open up your computer casing and look for the battery. Remove the battery for approximately 5 minutes (maybe longer, depending on the motherboard) and slot it back. By removing the battery and deprive the motherboard’s flash memory of power supply, you are essentially resetting the settings back to default when the existing data in BIOS are cleared.

laptop_battery_desktop_bios_remove_reset.jpgThis method works well for desktop, however this is not practical for laptop user unless the warranty expired long time ago. This method might or not not work, it depends on the type of motherboard.
Method 2 – Reset CMOS With SoftwarePC CMOS Cleaner is the best CMOS password reset software, it works setting the BIOS to the default state or revealing the password.
reset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove.jpgreset_bios_cmos_password_motherboard_remove2.jpgPC CMOS Cleaner is an easy-to-use tool to recover, delete, decode and display the superior passwords stored in BIOS whatever the brand is. Most types of BIOS are supported. It’s an bootable CD that runs on x86 and x86_64 computers. No need to pay expensive fees to experts. It’s a useful tool for users to get their lost BIOS password back, or clean passwords from an old computer bought from others.
  • Support all x86, x86_64 Personal Computers.
  • Support most BIOS, such as: AWARD, AMI, Compaq, Phoenix, Samsung, IBM, Compaq, DTK, Thinkpad, Sony, Toshiba and so on.
  • Display the superior passwords of the BIOS .
  • Remove BIOS password(will set the BIOS to default status, need reset date).
  • Set the BIOS to default state
