No - the password is stored in non volatile memory which means even taking out the battery wont clear it. Some Manufacturers have a super user password to clear the admin password - call the support desk for the manufacturer of the laptop you have.

How to reset bios password


You'll need to find out which screws hold the keyboard in. Usually three or four and are on the bottom of the laptop. After unscrewing them you'll have to pry off the plastic part (carefully) that is just under where your laptops screen is. Then you will see two, three, or four screws that hold the keyboard in. Unscrew those, then gently lift up the keyboard and you should see a small round button battery somewhere on the exposed part. That is the CMOS/BIOS battery. (Note you might have to take more screws out on the back if the battery is hidden under a part, but usually it is visible and you can get to it) remove that battery for 1/2 hour or longer, and put it back. This usally will reset the bios and its password. Also note tho, that some newer boards that won't work on, and you'll need to buy software especially for reseting the password in the BIOS. Youtube has some 'videos' that advertise those softwares. Try the battery thing first tho. If uncomfortable doing that first part to get to the battery yourself, you will want someone who knows how to take apart a laptop to do it for you.

I set a password for the router after logging into it online, and the password never worked to get back into it. Worse, now I'm locked out because it wants a password, and since it doesn't accept the one...


Hello,
You will need to do a factory reset on the router. Unfortunately, you will have to re-configure the router as if you just removed it from the box brand new.
Source: Belkin
  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
    See images below:

kytechnology_8.jpg

  1. Leave the router powered on.
  2. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  3. Remove the paperclip.
  4. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
KYTechnology

My lenovo x61 show a lock hence does not boot. I had set up a bios password which i can't remember.could u have an idea?


For a desktop computer:
Depending on the motherboard of the computer in question you can:
  • Locate and change the position of a jumper that will clear the BIOS settings.
  • Unplug the machine and pull out the battery that maintains the BIOS settings in RAM.
For the Lenovo x61 and other laptops:
Follow this link to see the laptop manual: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/42x3550_04.pdf

1. Turn off the computer.

2. Remove the battery pack. (See "1010 Battery pack" on page 60 of the above link.

3. Remove the backup battery. (For how to remove the backup battery, see "1140 Backup battery" on page 82 and page 65 of the above link).
3a. You must remove the keyboard and battery pack to access backup battery.
3b. Remove 4 screws with keyboard icon to remove keyboard.
3c. Gently push the keyboard forward.
3d. Then lift up the keyboard slightly.
3e. Detach the keyboard connector.
3f. Remove keyboard.
3g. Disconnect the backup battery.

4. Turn on the computer and wait until the POST ends.
After the POST ends, the password prompt should not appear. The POP has been removed.

5. Reinstall the backup battery and the battery pack and the keyboard.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

I Bought A laptop at a pawn shop . its a 7730 the person who sold it had a bios password code . How can I reset it ? I need to update everthing on it but can't


Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the cmos battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password
