How resest password bios in msi cx620


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

My dell pcc i just bout at a yardsell is asks for user name and password and i dont have it


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.


Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
hope this helps you

How do I reset my bios password on my Dell Studio 1537? I forgot the password and I've already tried removing the cmos batt.


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Not only the chip inside the motherboard can do it. All you have to do to DISABLE Jumper Setting near by Lithium CR2032 Battery or else in the motherboard by removing in a second (10 secs.) Then put back again and the BIOS were back into default setting.
Good luck!

Dell latitude d820 can't get intothe bios set up screen


The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine.

Hope you find this information usefull.
your feedback is appreciated.

I need to clear my Bios Password for My IBM Thinkpad R52


OK, I posted this the other day, so for the benefit of those who missed it. "None" of these techniques will work on the R52, as it has a different chip. The above well intentioned solutions mentioned above will work with older models but not this machine as the bios chip has been changed. FYI

P5NT won't boot


Have you tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery with PSU off and then shorting the 'reset cmos" (or similar) pins on mobo?

Also found this on the ASUS web site under the specs for the P5NT WS board...

01.gif ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support DVD. Users can reboot their system through the support DVD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process. ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

Have you tried this?

Forgot CMOS Password


Try leaving it blank see if that works first. If that don't work you may try to type in microsoft in the user name, and leave password blank, maybe that will work, If that don't work there are password retrieval disks you can buy, or you may have to reinstall the operating system, By doing a full OS (Operating system) restore. you will loose all info that was on the laptop, I sure Hope that Helps you out, If you need something else just ask here, thanks bear001
