Reset bios password


Acer laptops are equipped with a BIOS utility.
The BIOS (which stands for "Basic Input Output System") acts as an interface between the hardware and software installed on the computer.
On some computers, a BIOS password may be required in order to boot the computer and make changes to the BIOS settings.
If you are unable to access the BIOS settings and do not know how to reset the BIOS password, you might be tempted to send the computer back to the manufacturer for repair.
Fortunately, that's not necessary as there is a simple way to do this on your own.

Go to "Start," then perform a search for "Command Prompt."
The Windows Start button is located in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
Double-click on "Command Prompt" to open the application.
You will need to use MS-DOS commands to reset the BIOS password.

Type the following commands one by one in the order shown:
debug
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
quit
Make sure that you are typing the letter "o" and not a zero at the beginning of the second and third commands.
Reboot your computer by clicking "Start," "Shutdown," and then "Restart."
The BIOS password will now be reset to default.

you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password

At some stage you might need to press Ctrl+Enter rather than just Enter if on a Dell Latitude E5410

Editors note: This tool should only be used by experienced computer users.
Please see the enclosed read me if you would like to run it from Windows.
Failure to follow instructions (from Windows) will cause your anti-virus to flag this as a virus.

D946gzis bios.bin file i need pls help


Hi,

You need to update your bios interface and to do so, CLICK HERE. It's a PDF file and all you need to do is to click on the 3rd topic which is for the BIOS Update and what you need to do are as follows:

Updating the BIOS with the Intel® Express

BIOS Update Utility

With the Intel Express BIOS Update utility you can update the system BIOS while in

the Windows environment. The BIOS file is included in an automated update utility

that combines the functionality of the Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility and the ease

of use of Windows-based installation wizards.

To update the BIOS with the Intel Express BIOS Update utility:

1. Go to the Intel World Wide Web site:

http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/

2. Navigate to the D946GZIS page, click "[view] Latest BIOS updates," and select the

Express BIOS Update utility file.

3. Download the file to your hard drive. (You can also save this file to a removable

USB device. This is useful if you are updating the BIOS for multiple identical

systems.)

4. Close all other applications. This step is required. Your system will be rebooted at

the last Express BIOS Update window.

5. Double-click the executable file from the location on your hard drive where it was

saved. This runs the update program.

6. Follow the instructions provided in the dialog boxes to complete the BIOS update.

Before installing the BIOS update, be sure the computer is running from AC power. If the installation of the BIOS is interrupted by power loss, the computer may not operate correctly or at all.

During the installation of this update:
  • Do not turn the computer off.
  • Do not allow the computer to enter Standby or Hibernation states.
  • Do not start other programs.
  • Do not connect any peripherals.
Download the AIBSYS-00772903-US.EXE file to a temporary or download directory.

Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click the "AIBSYS-00772903-US.EXE" file to begin the installation.

At the "BIOS Update Utility for Microsoft® Windows® XP" box, click "Next".

At the "License Agreement" dialog, read the agreement, then, if you agree, click "I Agree" to continue with the installation.
NOTE:
Please wait while the utility extracts the necessary files for the update.

At the "VAIO BIOS Update Tool 1.0.01.10181" box, click "Update".

At the "WBFLASH" box, click "OK".
NOTE:
Please wait while the utility updates the BIOS.

At the "WBFLASH" BIOS Update successfully completed box , click "OK" to shutdown the computer.

After the computer shuts down, wait for a few seconds, and then power on the computer.
After the computer restarts, the installation of the BIOS Update is complete.

After installing the BIOS Update, it is required to Update the Video Driver to resolve the issue.

You can view and download the Video Driver Update from this link

Download the ATDVID-00610812-US.EXE file to a temporary or download directory (please note this directory for reference).

Go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click the ATDVID-00610812-US.EXE file to begin the installation.

Then, please follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.

After installing the Video Driver Update, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

Performing the above steps should fix the issue.



If the issue is not resolved, please check if the Vertical lines and discoloration are visible while accessing the BIOS Setup Utility.

To access the BIOS Window, please restart the Computer, press and hold the F2 Key to access the BIOS Setup Utility.

If the lines and discoloration are available on the BIOS Setup Utility window, the issue may be related to the LCD Screen of the Computer and you will need to get the Computer serviced to fix it.

In that case, you can contact Sony Service Center get the Computer serviced and resolve the issue.

I forgot the admin password. i'm using IBM computer windows xp. I have the CD for the password unlocker but when i go to BIOS it asks me for a setup utility password....Help! Thanks!


You need to turn off your computer and unplug the power cord. open up the box and find on the motherboard the jumper for the battery. Cut off the power from the battery for 30 seconds. The BIOS will reset to the default values.
Now, when you turn on your computer, will be able to access the BIOS, no password requested (default value for password). You also need to reset all your parameters as required by your specific setup.
Advice: if you don't have a strong reason to password the BIOS, don't do it.

First reboot the computer and enter the bios screen. Disable the bios protect...

Then reboot back into the OS (Presumably windows) and download the bios update from the manufacturer website. It will probably be a zip file containg the bios and the flash utility. Unzip the file and you should have a windows and/or DOS flash utility. If not, the utility should be posted on the website. If the utility is Windows, simpy run the utility. It will ask for the location of your bios file. The update utility will do the rest for you. If the program is DOS, the procedure is similar. Move the utility and bios update into your root directory, reboot, and simpy run the program from the command line.

CPU upgrade T2400 to T7600


Hi

The BIOS needs to be updated every few years when technology changes to accommodate the operation of new parts.
The update is normally obtained from the maker of the computer, or in the case of a non-brand computer, from the maker of the motherboard or sometimes the BIOS maker itself.
The BIOS contains all the technical information about key components of the computer like disk drives, keyboards and display settings. It also keeps track of the date and time.
In recent years some computers required BIOS updates to make them better operate with plug and play features built into Windows. BIOS updates were also required to accommodate larger hard drives.
The BIOS updates are generally downloadable from your motherboard's or computer's websites. You'll have to do some detective work to figure out what brand and model of motherboard is in the system that you have to update. If you bought your PC from a small shop, a manual for the motherboard is usually included with the system's documentation.
Once downloaded to your hard drive, run the update program and you may be prompted to create a floppy disk, which can then be used to update the BIOS.
However some newer programs will do a BIOS upodate without the need to create a floppy disk. You just the run the update and the BIOS is updated after a reboot.


Good Luck
