How to Bypass or Remove aBIOS Password

NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a passworded Hard Drive. 3 wrongguesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lostforever. How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing theCMOS Battery:
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOSbattery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when itis turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small batteryinside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, thecomputer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOSpassword. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experiencedworking with laptop hardware. Anyway, open up thecomputer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallicCMOS battery. 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 removea CMOS battery. Make sure to power down thecomputer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they arepowered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this towork. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it backin. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power inits capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allowsenough time for them to discharge. Plug everything back in,power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well thereshould be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messagesduring bootup now, you will need to go to "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and savethe changes to fix them.

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.


try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

Battery maximum usertime&excessive heat generated while using. LENOVO G560 model Under warranty


Most newer lap top computers generate a lot of heat. The designers of the machine walk a narrow line between efficiency and customer satisfaction. The heat comes from the processor and the power supply of the screen. Designers incorporate a standard called heat pipe design into cooling the CPU along with a small fan sometimes. The heat pipe design is a static (no electricity used) means of wicking away the heat from the processor. When the temperature goes higher than the heat pipe can act, a small fan cuts in to reduce the temperature, but at a cost of using electricity from your batteries. The heat of the lap tops have caused people to seek medical help for excessive reddened legs, thus generating a medical syndrome called "Lap top Syndrome"

The batteries are LI-ion (Lithium Ion) construction and have to be re-charged with extreme care as excessive heat generated by charging can case the lithium to burn and cause a fire. Battery designers have placed a small smart chip in the battery pack to monitor the voltage levels and this chip will shut the battery down if too much heat is detected. Since the batteries are of Li-ion design, they start

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....


BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

Hi There, When I turn on my emachines D620 lab top the screen does not come on. It seems that the lab top is booting correctly but no screen. Can you help with this problem?


I would like to understand if the screen atleast flicker when the system is turned on. Is the screen power led lit on or flickering. In case you have no signal on the screen or no blinking also, you may have to get the lap for a HW repair as it could be a lap monitor HS issue. Else it should show atleast the initial screen while boot up as the screen would be working with the basic Bios Instructions which doesnt have any driver or complicated OS Code to run the screen. So ideally it should work at the initial stage of Bios to confirm that the screen has no hardware issue. Good Luck.

I just replaced my ac adapter for my gateway lap top mx 6931 thinking that was the problem for why my screen flickers when i plug my ac adpater in to charge my battery. The battery wont charge unless i...


Chances are the power jack in the laptop that is to blame. It's common for the solder connections holding the jack to the motherboard to break because of the power plug flexing. One way to check is to keep the laptop steady and wiggle the power plug. If the power indicator flickers, that's what's wrong.

The good news is that this is usually repairable. The bad news is that not all service shops are willing to get into this level of repair. The motherboard needs to be removed from the computer so the connections can be repaired. Sometimes the board needs some mechanical repair as well, and occasionally the only way to fix the trouble is to replace the board. Most shops want to replace the motherboard right off.

Call around to shops in your area and see who's willing to try soldering the board. That is usually all that's needed to get you going again.

Toshiba m115-s1061 very slow on the internet. what can i do to make it faster


  1. Keep it cool. Despite its name, you lap is not the best place to put a laptop. Laptops generate a lot of heat, which can have a severe effect on your laptop's performance. Try not to use it in a hot room. Never set it on a bed, pillow, upholstery or anything else that is soft. Instead, place your laptop on a hard surface like a table. If you like using your laptop in bed or on the couch, try putting a book or a thick magazine in your lap and then setting the laptop on top of that. Every ten minutes or so, turn the book over so the surface never gets too hot. This will absorb the heat.
  2. Step2Shut down unneeded programs before using power-hungry software like games or large spreadsheets. The more programs you have running at the same time, the worse your computer's performance will be. Most computers have a lot of unneeded programs running in the background from the moment you boot up your computer. Shut them down manually using Ctrl+Alt+Delete, or download a freeware application that will shut them down for you. If you have Wndows Vista, you can also access the start up configuration by selecting "Run" from the accessories menu, then typing "msconfig" in the box

When I start up my lap top, it will bring me to the Acer screen before you select profiles, but gives me a failure alert, and leaves me at the Acer screen.


if you can access bios then restore default settings save and exit,sometimes hitting the right button at just the right time on startup is difficult,could take a dozen tries ,sometimes holding down the button,or tapping it rapidly on start will get you there,if none of that works,remove hard drive ,and ram sticks ,and reinstall ,sometimes they get knocked loose,if still nothing ,pull the bios battery on motherboard for a couple hours to reset,if its still under warranty send it in for repair,opening it will void warranty,you could also try booting to the operating system disk,and select repair option.hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

Please post what the temperatures read after you have had the computer running for a little while. Most likely this issue is a heating issue. Thank you.
