SOURCE: I forgot my bios password

I know some methods to reset bios password.
1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.
2. Follow some hard tutorials, it is difficult to do. It is better that you are a expert. For example this tutorial: Bypass BIOS Password or Crack CMOS Password?
3. Use the bios password recovery tool , but that is not free!

So I would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: forgot cmos bios password. How do

To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD, because it's pretty hard to open it up as you mentioned. Follow instructions from above link and try Kill CMOS to wipe the BIOS.

SOURCE: need Bios password for Aspire One D255E Forgot my

Hi dionp

ACER ASPIRE ONE D255E FORGOTTEN BIOS PASSWORD

The only almost certain way to solve this problem is to remember and enter the correct password.

On some laptops, it is possible to delete the BIOS Memory by disassembling the laptop, temporarily disconnecting the CMOS/RTC Battery before reconnecting it and reassembling the laptop.

So no damage is done during disassembly and the correct component positions and cable connections are restored during reassembly, this is a job best done by an experienced repair technician.

The CMOS battery is often a rounded, yellow, flattish object connected or it could be clicked into a socket on the underside of motherboard . While yellow is a common colour, the CMOS/RTC Battery can also be encased in blue, brown, black or green plastic and can also be identical to the silver CMOS Battery of a Desktop PC Motherboard.

On some models the CMOS/RTC Battery is accessible without disassembly, via the Wireless Card compartment underneath the laptop.

On other models, disconnecting and reconnecting the CMOS/RTC Battery is ineffective because nearby capacitors store the data if the Battery is removed and two contact points on the motherboard have to be bridged to dissipate the charge from the capacitors.

The Service/Disassembly Manual for your series of laptops can be downloaded in PDF format from here:

www.dalekeller.net/Other/Computers/AspireOne/Disassembly.pdf

I hope this helps.

In order to clear the BIOS password, you can remove the coin-cell (CMOS Battery) from the motherboard for a few minutes. The BIOS settings will be reset to defaults and you will have to reset password etc.

Bios default password


The BIOS default password is just blank, and it is not asked.

When you set a bios password, you are asked to enter a value, therefore if bios is asking the password, the password had been changed.

To reset the bios password if you do not know the password you need to access to motherboard and temporarily remove battery for few seconds.
Removing battery will reset bios and delete the password.
Unplug power cord before accessing the motherboard, and try not touching the motherboard with your finger.
Put battery back in place before restarting computer.
