You should search for two pins on your motherboard that have ''bios'' written near them. Then touch them with a screwdriver at the same time... Hope this helps :)

What is master Bios Master Password of IBM???2647 is The Model??


Are you asking for the password number itself, because only the guy that set it would know. If you are asking what it is, here: BIOS ( basic input/output system) is the basic boot program on the board that allows user interface with the chip. One can set a BIOS password to lockout a user from access. Problem is...is if you have the computer you can reset it by changing the BIOS jumper on the board. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

Cant boot up my toshiba lap top. it comes up asking for the BIOS password then shuts down after 3 tries! have tried all the F keys, shift key and removing battery!


the only way to get past the bios password is to open up the case and try to find a jumper on the main board that says bios reset, close that jumper and turn on the computer for one boot, power down and remove the jumper, after that the bios should be reset(bios passwords are usually set as a security measure that is not easy for the average user to bypass such as a windows one that can be removed by formatting the drive and reinstalling windows)

How can i reset the bios password for this laptop?


Key Disk for Toshiba laptopsSome Toshiba notebooks allow to bypass BIOS by inserting a "key-disk" in the floppy disk drive while booting. To create a Toshiba Keydisk, take a 720Kb or 1.44Mb floppy disk, format it (if it's not formatted yet), then use a hex editor such as Hex Workshop to change the first fwe bytes of the second sector (the one after the boot sector) and set them to 4B 45 59 00 00 (note that the first three bytes are the ASCII for "KEY" :) followed by two zeroes). Once you have created the key disk put it into the notebook's drive and turn it on, then push the reset button and when asked for password, press Enter. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter. You'll enter the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password..

How do I reset my bios password? I can' not enter bios it asks for an admimistator password.


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

How to break the bios password?


Hello,

All you need to do is just to power off your system, remove the battery and unscrew all the screws that will lead you to your board.

When you are at the board, remove the cmos battery of your laptop and put back your laptop battery to power on the laptop for a while, power on without the cmos battery, your laptop will be reset and will not ask of the bios password anymore.

After it has been reset, you can now put back the cmos battery and couple everything back.

Your laptop will work without asking you bios password anymore.

Take care

Don't reset password BIOS HP DC7100


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

Open the CPU casing locate the CMOS battery in motherboard and 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. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper.

This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it. Good luck!

Asks for BIOS key


Turn the computer off, find the bios reset jumper put it on the other position, wait 10 seconds or more - no hurry, put the jumper back into the other spot, start up the computer and go into bios, remove the password if there is one or set a new one, take out off from start up

the location of the jumper is in the user manual. it should restore default settings, if it doesnt' unplug and take the memory battery out for over night and check it on the morning.

Can' get back on computer


Hi. Is it the bios password or Windows password? If it's the bios jumper 1 on the mother board is the bios reset. Just reset the jumper and all shoul be good. If its windows it may be an administrator password you had when you set up your pc that being the case, depending on how you setup windows you may be able to press ctrl,alt, delete to get to user menu and press enter, alternativly clear the box and press enter.
