The FSC 1320D's are truely remarkable... We haev had a default BIOS password for our laptops for a while now, but it has recently started to have been guessed or found out. So of course, they needed to be changed. And suprisingly enough, the FSC 1320D will not allow you to reset the BIOS password through ANY user method so far, and we really have tried everything.
Removing the BIOS battery - This does nothing, at the best of times the system will display an error saying it has been removed but other than that the BIOS password remains.
Updating the BIOS - Most people would suspect that if you update the BIOS it compeltely refreshes the set system settings, including the BIOS password. This again, is not the case with this model, as every attempt at updating the BIOS so far has been deemed useless.
BIOS Corruption - This again, does not work. It leaves the system in a dead state, usually the BIOS resets. This has occured once, as during boot we noticed the options to scan memory had changed and it took longer, but the BIOS password remained.
Backdoor Passwords - Again, do not work. We have tried the entire list submitted by Ekse.
Reset VIA Software - There are some hacking programs out there which reset the BIOS through the Operating System. And i think we can all guess what im about to say... They don't work. It may just be for this model, as i've not tried them on others, but the BIOS password for the FSC 1320D does not get reset using this applications.

So, the verdict?
Apparently you can submit your laptop back to Fujitsu Siemens for an 'Out of warranty repair', and they will reset it for you. Assumingly by changing the BIOS chip completely. The only downside to this is that it can cost anything from £50 - £150 depending on service charges and delivery costs. My opinion, wasting time on a laptop that is past its sell-by date like the FSC 1320D is really not something you want to be doing. Buy a new laptop and sell the 1320D for spare parts.

Hi Keith,

Most current laptops have no CMOS/BIOS reset and (unlike what desktop motherboards have, a jumper and a removable memory battery). Their passwords are stored in an EEPROM and could not be bypassed.

Additionally, due to the very nature of the passwords and security/ownership issues, most concerns concerning BIOS passwords are usually referred to the manufacturer. No offense intended but you have to have proof of ownership.

Alternately and if you are feeling adventurous enough, you could try freezing the laptop (less the battery, HD and CD) inside a ziplock plastic bag.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    In most laptops there is no bios reset jumper but



    Removing the battery

    If you can't find the jumper to flash the BIOS or if such jumper doesn't exist, you can remove the battery that keeps the BIOS memory alive. It's a button-size battery somewhere on the motherboard (on elder computers the battery could be a small, typically blue, cylinder soldered to the motherboard, but usually has a jumper on its side to disconnect it, otherwise you'll have to unsolder it and then solder it back). Take it away for 15-30 minutes or more, then put it back and the data contained into the BIOS memory should be volatilized. I'd suggest you to remove it for about one hour to be sure, because if you put it back when the data aren't erased yet you'll have to wait more time, as you've never removed it. If at first it doesn't work, try to remove the battery overnight.
    Important note: in laptop and notebooks you don't have to remove the computer's power batteries (which would be useless), but you should open your computer and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard.


    Short-circuiting the chip
    Another way to clear the CMOS RAM is to reset it by short circuiting two pins of the BIOS chip for a few seconds. You can do that with a small piece of electric wire or with a bended paper clip. Always make sure that the computer is turned OFF before to try this operation.
    Here is a list of EPROM chips that are commonly used in the BIOS industry. You may find similar chips with different names if they are compatible chips made by another brand. If you find the BIOS chip you are working on matches with one of the following you can try to short-cicuit the appropriate pins. Be careful, because this operation may damage the chip.

    If you can boot up the pc, we can corrupt the bios so that it resets





    Flashing BIOS via software





    If you have access to the computer when it's turned on, you could try one of those programs that remove the password from the BIOS, by invalidating its memory.
    However, it might happen you don't have one of those programs when you have access to the computer, so you'd better learn how to do manually what they do. You can reset the BIOS to its default values using the MS-DOS tool DEBUG (type DEBUG at the command prompt. You'd better do it in pure MS-DOS mode, not from a MS-DOS shell window in Windows). Once you are in the debug environment enter the following commands:

    AMI/AWARD BIOS O 70 17
    O 71 17
    Q Basicly you need a start up disk with windows 98 dos on it, start dostype debugthenO 70 2E
    O 71 FF
    Q
    restart the pc and the bios is reset.

  • Ekse May 07, 2008

    Thats Generic



    debug

    o 70 2E

    o 71 FF

    q = quit



    Seems I ran out of space there.
