Pull out the CMOS battery (the little watch-style battery on the motherboard). This will reset all of your BIOS settings including the password.

How to baypass bios password on sumsung np300e5x


You can't bypass BIOS password. All you can do is to RESET BIOS, by removing CMOS battery and waiting some time till it discharges completely.
After you reset BIOS, you shuld enter BIOS at startup and input your setup values, so before doing this, you should check your BIOS setup. See some video tutorials but be careful. Dismounting a Laptop is not a joke. You may end with some parts in a shoebox rushing to your repair service...

How to Bypass BIOS Passwords


BIOS passwords can add an extra layer of security for desktop and laptop computers. They are used to either prevent a user from changing the BIOS settings or to prevent the PC from booting without a password. Unfortunately, BIOS passwords can also be a liability if a user forgets their password, or changes the password to intentionally lock out the corporate IT department. Sending the unit back to the manufacturer to have the BIOS reset can be expensive and is usually not covered in the warranty. Never fear, all is not lost. There are a few known backdoors and other tricks of the trade that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS v Before attempting to bypass the BIOS password on a computer, please take a minute to contact the hardware manufacturer support staff directly and ask for their recommended methods of bypassing the BIOS security. In the event the manufacturer cannot (or will not) help you, there are a number of methods that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS password yourself. They include:
Using a manufacturers backdoor password to access the BIOS
Use password cracking software
Reset the CMOS using the jumpers or solder beads.
Removing the CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes
Overloading the keyboard buffer
Using a professional service
Please remember that most BIOS passwords do not protect the hard drive, so if you need to recover the data, simply remove the hard drive and install it in an identical system, or configure it as a slave drive in an existing system. The exception to this are laptops, especially IBM Thinkpads, which silently lock the hard drive if the supervisor password is enabled. If the supervisor password is reset without resetting the and hard drive as well, you will be unable to access the data on the drive.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Backdoor passwords
Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords

Bypass bios setup password hp pavillion


Step 1:
All computer BIOS chips have a backdoor master password designed to be used in the event that you can't remember the password you set yourself or by a tech support agent who is fixing your machine. These passwords are set at the factory level and do not change, no matter what model of computer you own. You will use this password to bypass the currently set password in the event that you need to access your HP BIOS but cannot.

Turn on your HP computer. Strike the "F2" keyboard key. Your HP computer will attempt to load your BIOS. You will be prompted to enter your current password. Type "merlin" into the password prompt and hit "Enter." This is the backdoor BIOS password for HP brand computers. You will now bypass the user defined password and the BIOS screen will load as normal.

Lenovo T61 Power-on password. Hi, my Lap suddenly asks me a code that I unknow. It doesn't able access to any setup, even when I press F1 to open BIOS Setup Utility to remove. I removed Backup battery...


The BIOS password isconfigured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an 24RF08 EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor passwordavailable and IBM/Lenevo support says the motherboard needs to be replaced.Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to thedefault settings will not allow you to bypass this password. This also applies to thePower On Password and the Hard Disk Password.There is a way to crack thepassword but you need electronic skills, electronic components and severalprograms plus a working computer to carry out this task.For details on how to dothis check this WEB site.http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335050-remove_bios_power_password_thinkpad

Bypass Bios Setup Password


You cannot bypass the BIOS password, but you can reset the password. To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop. I found it. it won't go to boot menu, or setup. Somehow it has a password authentication password, how to I bypass that and do a complete system restore on it... PLEASE...


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

Bios password


You will need the BIOS password to enter the BIOS setup.
To do a hardware reset remove the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes. Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
After you enter BIOS, go to the Boot tab and down to "Security" and make your changes there.
If you need help with the default password, please re-post your request.
Thanks and good luck.
