Reset bios 4052lci cmos 2310


Your computer's BIOS screen can be incredibly useful when you need to make certain hardware or system configurations.
How to access the BIOS on your laptop varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Even though Acer laptops are created by the same manufacturer, not all models access BIOS in the same manner.
While accessing the BIOS setup screen in and of itself is not difficult all you need to do is press a key the difficulty is in figuring out which key to hit.
Restart or power on the laptop.
Hit the "Pause/Break" key the moment the Acer boot screen (not the OS start-up screen) appears.
If the OS start-up screen appears before you can hit Pause/Break, you will need to restart the laptop.

Press "F2" or "Del" to access the BIOS set-up screen.
Depending on the age of your Acer laptop, you may need to instead press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Esc" simultaneously to access BIOS.
Using the arrow keys navigate failsafe or optimized defaults press F10 to safe to cmos and exit to restart.

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:

How to reset a password to toshiba A205-S5804


To enter in to bios, try password Toshiba.

Also:
By UsingMS DOS Command: This methodworks only if you have access to the system when its turned on because thismethod requires MS DOS. Open Command Prompt from Programs menuand provide following commands one bye one: Debug o 70 2E o 71 FF quit NOTE:The first character in the above commands is English alphabet "o"and not the number 0. After providing the above commands, restart your systemand it should reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password. If you arecurious to know how it works? then let me explain the above commands: In this method we are using theDebug tool of MS DOS. The "o" character present atfirst in these commands, outputs the values to IO ports. The number 70and 71 are port numbers which are used to access CMOS memory.By providing FF value we are telling CMOS that there is aninvalid checksum and it resets the CMOS settings as well as BIOS password. By UsingSoftware: There are a few software which canalso reset CMOS settings or BIOS password or both within a few clicks. But asstated above you should have access to a system which is turned on and shouldhave access to MS DOS or MS Windows: CmosPwd . You can download program on this page: http://www.cgsecurity.org/cmospwd-5.0.zip

My n6410 hard drive is password locked,but i dont know the password


In order to unlock your hard disk drive. You have to open your laptop and look for the cmos battery, cmos battery is a small circle dry cell and its number is CR2032. The cmos battery are responsible for holding the bios settings like the system date and time. The purpose of removing the battery is to clear the settings you save in your bios/cmos settings, just remove from its base and put i back after 10 seconds. With this procedure it will unlock your hard disk drive and now you access your computer. The problem here right now is the opening of your computer. You have to be careful while opening your computer you might break the casing or damage some parts. Have a nice day.

How to reset cmos or bios


Hello Friend,

There are a few ways.
The easiest way is to enter the BIOS setup screen, and select the option to reset to default settings, it should be easy to find or it would be on the save changes sections.

If you can not access the BIOS setup screen, it will take physical access to the computer's motherboard. This means you will need to open up the computer case. From here there are a few options that you can do.
change the the CMOS jumper to reset.
Press the CMOS reset buttion
Or remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes.
Please note that not all manufacturer have a jumper setting or cmos reset button. Also a CMOS battery looks like a button battery.
Also if you are going to open up the case, make sure the computer is off, unplugged, and if this is a laptop the battery must be removed. Good Luck!
