There should be 3 pins with a jumper on 2 of the pins on the motherboard. Put the jumper on the other 2 pins and turn it on. Once it boots turn it back off and put the jumper back. That should reset the bios password.

    I am forgot bios password in my lenovo g550 laptop.can i reset it ?


    Hi,
    Are you the one who set up the BIOS password? If not, unfortunately, there's no way for us to retrieved the password. The only way you can reset the password to default settings is to reseat the CMOS battery on the motherboard, its a circular thing that looks like a battery of a watch,sometimes a pin hold it, just detached it then wait for at least 30 minutes then connect it back again,
    Note: Before you reseat the CMOS battery,make sure that everything is unplugged on the computer, like AC adapter,battery and all external devices...
    Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    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

    Good luck...hope this helps...

    How to Change/Reset a BIOS password Posted on 30 December 2008
    Tags: Tech News, Tutorials If you are a normal computer user who has forgot his BIOS password and you are unable to access to your BIOS, then you need a simple way to change your BIOS. Its not that hard because you just need a simple trick to reset your BIOS password.
    Open your CPU cabinet after switching OFF the power and then try to locate the CPU battery which can be found very easily. Once you locate your battery you need to remove it once and restart your PC without the battery.

    cmos-battery-check.png Note : Once you remove your battery from the mother board, you will find that all your time settings in your computer would be lost, and some softwares may stop working which are based on your computer time.

    You need to shut down your PC again and now add back the battery which will enable you the time saving feature and also reset your BIOS password.
