Open up the side of the case. You should see three headers, with a jumper on the first two. It should be labeled something like cmos or something like that. Remove the jumper, and switch it so that is is covering the last two. Then, remove it again and put it back. That should reset the BIOS to defaults, including the password. If you cannot find the jumper, remove the battery from the motherboard for a period of time (I'd try 24 hours just to be safe). When you replace the battery, it should reset the password.

do you mean the windows login password or the drive password? if it is happening before windows boots up, it is easy to fix, just open the laptop and short the internal battery for 5 seconds, that will wipe out all system password, but you have to reconfigure the bios settings,

Cant remember recovery password for recovery of my acer aspire 3050


I don't think there is a recovery password..It may be the BIOS one ..and asks you that cause it needs to boot from the recovery partition ..try it ..If it is not working ..and you do not remember setting a password for it ..try on the support site ..maybe there is a factory one .....(also try the manual in this case it may be mentioned..)
If you know for sure you inserted a password for it ..and now you can not remember it ..im not sure you will be able to use it ..unless you find a way to eliminate it ..Or ..try to use a recovery disk from now on ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system and install it normally and not from the partition ..
If it is the same with the bios password ..I understood there are ways to remove it ..using either a password generator ..or a master one from the manufacturer support site ..or removing its battery ..(BIOS battery )

I cant remember my master password so my computer wont start up. i dont know how it happened but when i turn it on it asks for a password before it boots up. its a toshiba satellite model number...


You can remove a BIOS password by removing the CMOS battery for about 1/2 hour. Find a manual on your system to help, if you don't know where it is.

This is a known issue with some newer Toshiba laptops. The laptop can set the BIOS password on its own and I believe it happens because of a glitch in the BIOS.

Be sure to go to the Toshiba website and get all the updates for your model, once you're back in.

Forgot bios password


Hi ,
You need to reset your CMOS.Open your CPU cover.and look for CMOS battery.Its a button cell.You have to remove that battery and on the machine and go into bios.It will remove your cmos password.
But if this thing not worke then find out CMOS reset jumper on your motherboard.It will be located somewhere near your CMOS battery.Just remove that jumper and connect to reset settings.and start your machine.It will remove your password.
