Hi, The solution I can advice you is to reset the cmos to a default by removing the cmos battery or move the jumper to 2&3 pin for a few second and set it back to the original jumper position. But you may need a new hard drive the cmos lock the hard drive and will will dead. You have to find out what is the cmos password to save that hard drive. I hope this information will help you to solve the problem.

I dnt have password to start


Hello Ashfaq,
If you dont know the system password for your System, forgotten it, or its not accepting it again, then you might have to reset your CMOS.
Which means you will have to unscrew your system, remove all cables supplying power to the board, locate the CMOS battery and remove it for a few seconds, then replace it and screw your system back.
This will reset your system's CMOS back to its Factory default settings.
(If you cant unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you instead.)
But if it is Windows Logon Password you are referring to, then let me know, so that I can provide you with the solution.

Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

Unknown pass word


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also
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 a 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

Password is forgotten. I can get passed the booot up screen. I cant get into the boot menu or setup with out the password. please help


You will have to do a hard cmos clearing which will load your bios back to it default value. 99% of the time if will clear the password. In order to do this, you may have to tear your laptop apart just to get to the cmos battery which is located on your laptop motherboard somewhere. Once you located your cmos battery which is silver/nickel size of a nickel, you need to take this battery out for a few minute and then reinstall it back, then put your laptop toghter and then it will clear the bios and reload to it's default setting.

Old owner passed on and noone knows the password


You will need to remove the cmos battery / flash the cmos jumper / refit battery then reboot.

Do not attempt this if you have never done it. Get an expert to do this.

remove the cmos battery for 30 secs at least - usually works

also try looking in your manual for mention of a cmos reset jumper,
short these 2 pins and it should reset your bios to defaults and remove any passwords

How to remove cmos/bios password ?


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

We cant reset our password because we dont have the wizard cd.not only that we never set the password anyway the computer came with it and we want to set our own password.


Is that a Bios password? then take out its cmos battery for a short time then place it back again this should rest to its default configuration without the password or clear it using its cmos reset jumper header on the motherboard. Consult manual for more info.

Do this when unit is off and unplugged to source outlet. Touch first the frame of your case to free you of static.

If this password is from user accounts. Log on to it goto control panel goto user account select account to be set with your password enter old pass,new pass then confirm it. your now set. Do this changes using account with administrator privilidge.

Hope it helps
