Remove password from hardrive in bios


Before your computer loads your operating system, it starts by running the BIOS program, which is extremely important because of its various options.

You can even set a password on your hard drive so that nobody can use your laptop computer without your password.

Once you put in the password into your hard drive, you can only remove it by accessing the BIOS system and deleting the password completely from the memory of your computer.

Save all of your important files on an external hard drive or similar storage device.
This is a precaution to avoid losing all of your files when making changes to the BIOS.

Then, restart your computer.
Wait for your computer's operating system to ask you to access the BIOS menu.

This may be at different times, depending on the manufacturer of your computer.
It can ask you when the manufacturer's logo comes up, or on a separate screen indicating for you to click the "F2" button on your keyboard to start.

Access the BIOS menu by clicking the key or combination of keys that you are informed to click. This information can be found in your computer's manual, but it changes between different companies.

Commonly used keys for this process are "F10", "F2" and "Delete."
Go to the BIOS option that contains your hard disk drive password.

The option that will lead you to this password varies immensely due to different laptop models, but it may appear as something such as "Advanced" or "Security."


Look for the option for changing the password, which should say "User Password," and then click "Enter." Put in the existing password and then click "Enter."

Do not enter any password into the blank fields asking you to enter a new password, and this will remove the password.

Exit the menu by clicking "Save and Exit." Click "Enter."

I cant remember my login password and f8 does not work in safe mode still asking the password


Once you assign a password to your HP computer's BIOS configuration utility, you will need to enter that password every time you attempt to access the BIOS.
If you forget this password, don't fret there is still a way to unlock your BIOS without actually knowing the original user defined password.
This involves using a "backdoor" password, which is something that is installed onto your BIOS at the factory level that never changes.

Turn on your HP computer.
Press "F2" to load your HP BIOS access screen.
A password prompt will load on your monitor.
Type "merlin" into the password field (with no quotes) and hit your "Enter" keyboard key to unlock your HP BIOS password.

(Emachines: intel pentium 4) Everytime i turn on my computer it requests for a system password, and im unable to use my restore cd.


That's known as a BIOS password. If you clear the BIOS, you can possibly avoid asking who set the password, but then you have to be able to set up the BIOS acceptably, about which you can google around for details. Asking around (to others who use the system, in case it's not just you) might let you know something new. Perhaps someone set it from within a utility rather than directly via the BIOS, and perhaps it's a soft error and entering '0' or '00000000' or 'password' or some such default password will avail.

I cannot access my bios. I just bought this computer used and I'm trying to re-install Windows XP. I cannot change the boot order of the computer unless I access the bios and change the setting. I press...


you might need to reset the BIOS to bypass the password. You can open up the computer tower and remove the CMOS battery for 30 seconds and put it back in. Try to turn on the computer and it should not ask you for the password anymore.

Black enter password screen, but no password


I'm not sure if this will work but it may be that your system bios is asking for a password. If so, as you reboot the system, press F8 down until the system bios screen appears. Then page thru to see if the bios is asking for a system password. If so, you should be able to deactivate it thru the bios.

Hope this works.

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.

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.

Can not get into phoenixbios setup utility


Hi

Is it like when you turn on your computer it asks you for a BIOS password.


You need to open the notebook from the back and locate the small battery which looks like the shape of coin,
After locating it take that battery out and turn on your computer,
Once your computer is fully loaded then turn if Off,
Then put the battery back and turn on your computer
Try to go into BIOS.
I am sure you will be able to go into BIOS.
