How to disable HDD Bios password in dell Optiplex 990?


The easy way to clear the bios password and reset bios is to take out the bios battery and start computer for about 10 seconds and then turn it back off and replace the battery. When you turn it back on you may need to go into the bios and reset everything the way you want it, and don't forget to rest the time and date.

You are welcome

How to bypass password request when pressing f2 on an acer 4720?


Good Day!!
Follow this advice but you have to be careful because it may create further damage....

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 alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables . The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 5 - 10minutes 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 bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

Hope it will help you.....

I forget bios password for HP DL160 G6 server, how do i reset the password ?


  1. Shutdown your server.
  2. Go inside the server, and remove the CMOS battery. It should look like this.

3. Be sure to power down your server before taking it out. Be aware that once you take this out the system will forget a lot of it's time settings. This is the battery that keeps the computer's memory of time, date, and BIOS password when it's shutdown.

My desk top computer has booting problem


The F1 or F2 takes you into the BIOS setting.
The problem could be a flat BIOS battery and the Date & Time needs to be set to the current date & time.
Replacing the BIOS battery with a new one will fix this problem. When you insert the new battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time.

Li m runing window 7 operating system i forget my bios password so help me to install window in my system


First you have to reset your bios password relax , you can do it. It just take time.There are two ways to approach forcing the Bios/CMOS to be reset to its default values: Option #1: Mechanically, by removing all power to the Bios/CMOS thereby forcing it to reset itself to its stored defaults, which include no password or the default password employed by the Bios manufacturer, and Option #2: Using a program to either locate and identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely. These are referred to as password by-pass utilities or cracks. Let's look at Option #1 first, and then move on to Option #2 if necessary.Most motherboards manufactured over the last decade or more use a battery to sustain the dynamic Bios/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. These dynamic settings are those manually set by either the computers manufacturer or you, the user. There are two ways to erase these dynamic settings, by either resetting a jumper on the motherboard itself (referred to as a "clear CMOS" jumper), or by physically remove the power from the computer (disconnecting the power plug) and then removing a battery (used to maintain power to the PROM chip that contains the Bios/CMOS information) from the motherboard.Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.But do not forget to put it back at its same pin as before.

I forget bios password.


THERE IS A BATTERY ON THE MOTHER BOARD . TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND POWER ON THE MB FOR A MOMENT. DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY AND INSERT THE BATTERY BACK. BOOT YOUR SYSTEM. THIS SHOULD HAVE SOLVED THE PROB. YOU NEED TO SET THE DATE AND TIME INCLUDING THE DESIRED BIOS SETTING.

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery.

If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware

Anyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like the picture to the right. Some computers have this part standing upright.
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 bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

Kids put wrong bios password three time the shutdown not even power come to computer


There are a few different ways to resolve this issue
1. Call the manufacturer and ask if they have a reset or a way to get the password

2. Look in the manual and see if your laptop has a jumper setting that will reset the bio (including the password)

3. Just go to the manufacturers website and get the latest bios update and flash the bios

4. Remove the cmos battery leave it out for literally a week (7days) then replace it (best if the computeris off this entire time)- this way it forgets whats saved in the bios

Hi. Were you able to see the the DELL post screen when you turn on the computer? Take out the battery and unplugged the power adapter from your computer and to the wall socket. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back in then turn on the computer.
