How can i reset login password to my pavilion dv6


Common approach is to remove cmos battery for a few minutes to reset bios info. On compaq F10 bios, you can go into bios setup and go back to default setup, which resets to no password set in bios.

Tip

Resetting BIOS password


If you have loast the password, to reset the BIOS password you need to remove temporarily the CMOS battery , so to reset BIOS settings.

Some model may be using NV Ram, in that case removing the battery is not enough.

The battery is located on the lower side on the motherboard.

On many DELL models the battery can be accessed from the side of DVD slot, battery slot, or RAM slot, without disassemblying the laptop.

On some model you may need complete disassembly (eg. Dell Le series).

The battery usually looks like a couple of coin batteries wrapped in plastic and connected to motherboard by a two wires connector.

Before disassemblying or removing covers, always unplug adapter and remove battery.

Several Dell Laptop can be set to use NV Ram to store the password.
In this case the problem cannot be solved removing primary battery, then accessing and removing CMOS battery for few minutes.

If you still cannot reset you have two way out.

Disassemble completely and access the NVRAM microswitch, or contact Dell and get master password.

You can also try one of this standard Dell factory CMOS password:

ALFAROME
BIOSTAR
biostar
biosstar
CMOS
cmos
LKWPETER
lkwpeter

Using Computer Setup to Reset CMOS

To reset CMOS through Computer Setup, you must first access the
Computer Setup Utilities menu.

When the Computer Setup message appears in the lower-right corner
of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title
screen, if necessary.

-- If you do not press the F10 key while the message is displayed, you
must turn the computer off, then on again, to access the utility.

A choice of five headings appears in the Computer Setup Utilities
menu: File, Storage, Security, Power, and Advanced.

To reset CMOS to the factory default settings first set time and date,
then use the arrow keys or the Tab key to select File > Set Defaults
and Exit. This resets the soft settings that include boot sequence
order and other factory settings. It will not, however, force hardware
rediscovery.

See the Desktop Management Guide on the Documentation CD for
further instructions on reestablishing passwords. For instructions on
Computer Setup, see the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide on the
Documentation CD.

For more details and pictures see the help pdf:

The security password is set in the system BIOS. You must boot to the setup of the laptop and change it there to be nothing. You must know the password to set it to nothing.

Latitude unlock setup password?


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

Sony vaio VGN FJ290P password reset sony vaio VGN FJ290P


I have set the password for administrator when i entered the bios set up. you can change its setting but not the configuration unless you've entered the password. you can't change the password with a new one if you cant enter the old password. Next time dont forget your password because laptops has its security even when stolen you cant open its bios set up if its protected by password. CMOS battery is in the mother board. You need a service technician to open your laptop to reset the bios setup battery.

TravelMate 530 CMOS Battery


You BIOS setup at the time of bootup should have a reset to factory settings. However if it requires a password you may have trouble getting into it.

Some notbooks have a battery you can pull off the motherboard to reset it back to factory settings. It usually is a small lithium battery.
