    What make and model System Board is it?

    There is usually a way to clear CMOS settings (including the password) but it helps to know what you are working with.

I forgot my password on my desk top computer its an older gateway running windowsxp. how do I reset my password or restore the computer to factory settings?


Just take out its bios battery [back-up lithium battery; disc type]; thus disable the bios memory. The re-insert the battery. All bios settings will be lost, but no data loss will occur. You have to re-set the bios settings, by holding F1 button during startup.

Unable to open bios on e-machine to change logging order


Boy everyone needs to be more specific on their questions! If you mean you want to get into the BIOS but cannot because you forgot the password, I have never seen any program that will retrieve it for any computer. But not all is lost, you can reset it to factory defaults if your comfortable with electronics, you can open your computer and remove the CMOS BIOS battery and leave it out for 15 minutes (some computers will need a little more or a little less time but 15 minutes will usually be long enough for most of them) Replace the battery and close your computer. You should now have the original factory settings for your computer and the password should be gone.
NOTE: only do this if you know how you had all of the other settings, because it will revert to original factory settings and all BIOS modifications you had done will also be lost as well! Also removing the CMOS BIOS battery is not something that could be done by anyone, you must have a good understanding of electronics to properly do this action.

Forgot my password but i don't have the discs


Hello,

You can clear the password with a program like active@ password changer. It is a bootable cd that will allow you to clear a windows user password. You can purchase it from their website at www.password-changer.com If you forgot a BIOS password, then you will have to sent it to Acer to have it cleared. They charge $100 for this service in Canada.

Hope this helps!

B110 Desktop...the bios password has me locked out. How can I reset to the factory bios password. How do I set a new bios password when I don't know the current one????


Hi

You have to open up your laptop notebook by removing all the screws at the back of your computer but make sure you remove the battery and then remove the CMOS battery at the motherboard and return again to reset the BIOS setting and will remove the password.

I hope it helps you.

How do i bypass the primary drive lock password


On the mainboard near the coin battery you'll find a jumper. take it off and reboot. Replace it and reboot again. that works sometimes. If not you can go to the motherboards' BIOS like Phoenix and they have backdoors built in. Read on:
Backdoor passwords Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords
Award BIOS backdoor passwords:
[TABLE]
AMI BIOS backdoor passwords:
[TABLE]
PHOENIX BIOS backdoor passwords:
phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS
MISC. COMMON PASSWORDS
[TABLE]

Good luck...hope this helps...

Forgot password to log in to pc


Hi,
Please mention your problem clearly....
If its BIOS password (when system boots it will ask for password) then shutdown the system and remove the COMS battery for 2 minutes which is present in the one of the corner of the motherboard.
If its user password (asking the user name and password) then you need to install a fresh copy of windows xp. to install a windows xp, Insert the XP bootable cd into the CD-ROM. Restart the system. Then the system will boot from cd. If its not asking to boot from cd then you need to change the settings on BIOS menu. When system restarts keep-on pressing the DEL or F2 keys or both. then it will take you to BIOS setup. there change the boot priority. Select first boot device as CD/DVD ROM. After please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Follow the steps.
