Just click in the space where it wants a password it should automatically think that you have added a password
if this is not what the problem is a password should not be there once a cmos battery is removed is this the question/problem
hope this helps

Bios password reset


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also
The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip.

So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

hope this helps

I have using msi k8mm-v ms-7142 ver:1 motherboard with amd sampron 2500+processor its audio driver is not working i download and install ac97 audio from msi site but it is asking to enable bios audio...


You have to double check the cmos or bios settings which the audio are enabled mostly on integrated peripherals inside of you bios! Tap DEL key to enter bios setup.If the audio settings are enabled other solution is to upgrade your bios firmware. You can actually download the update from MSI official website. But be careful while updating your bios firmware, be sure to download the exact model of the motherboard and you must have back up battery or UPS while performing flashing your cmos because if interrupted while flashing causes of fluctuation your motherboard will be dead set.Always remember to back up your cmos before flashing it. After flashing your cmos, install again you downloaded audio driver. The audio driver must be compatible with your operating system in order to install the driver. Hope this works for you!

I have a msi u100 series netbook.my problem am having is with the bios password i remove the battery and wait a minute but the password still remains does this module have a jumper?


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How to break the bios password?


Hello,

All you need to do is just to power off your system, remove the battery and unscrew all the screws that will lead you to your board.

When you are at the board, remove the cmos battery of your laptop and put back your laptop battery to power on the laptop for a while, power on without the cmos battery, your laptop will be reset and will not ask of the bios password anymore.

After it has been reset, you can now put back the cmos battery and couple everything back.

Your laptop will work without asking you bios password anymore.

Take care

Forgot password for bios setting


For this issue if you need to fix it with your self you need to follow the instruction from me. First you need to open your unit. Locate where the CMOS battery located.

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.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is.

If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

Hp compaq nx8220 - Administrator password cannot be reset


If this issue started with a motherboard error that appeared to be a faulty CMOS battery and then it started incorrectly detecting your memory and now is asking for a password it could be a faulty motherboard. If you are 110% you or anyone else has set a password on that laptop then I would say your motherboard needs to be replaced. It is a difficult process to reset admin passwords on most laptops due to a security chip that will prevent the trick of removing the battery from working. In all honestly if no one has set a password and the motherboard THINKS someone has then even if you reset the password you will still have issues. There is a small chance your CPU or RAM could be defective. But, again going back to it saying you have a password set that was never set. It just yells faulty motherboard unless someone has set a password without you knowing.

How do I reset the cmos settings for the msi motherboard ms 6570?


If you're unable to enter your BIOS, or if you set a system password in the BIOS but forgot it, you might be able to fix the problem by clearing the CMOS memory. On some motherboards, this requires you to turn off and unplug your PC, disconnect the CMOS battery for a few hours, replace the battery, and turn on your PC again. Other motherboards have a CMOS clear jumper pin that you must move to a temporary position and then return it to its original position.

Post back if you still need more help.

Thank you
