How to reset bios password

The FSC 1320D's are truely remarkable... We haev had a default BIOS password for our laptops for a while now, but it has recently started to have been guessed or found out. So of course, they needed to be changed. And suprisingly enough, the FSC 1320D will not allow you to reset the BIOS password through ANY user method so far, and we really have tried everything.
Removing the BIOS battery - This does nothing, at the best of times the system will display an error saying it has been removed but other than that the BIOS password remains.
Updating the BIOS - Most people would suspect that if you update the BIOS it compeltely refreshes the set system settings, including the BIOS password. This again, is not the case with this model, as every attempt at updating the BIOS so far has been deemed useless.
BIOS Corruption - This again, does not work. It leaves the system in a dead state, usually the BIOS resets. This has occured once, as during boot we noticed the options to scan memory had changed and it took longer, but the BIOS password remained.
Backdoor Passwords - Again, do not work. We have tried the entire list submitted by Ekse.
Reset VIA Software - There are some hacking programs out there which reset the BIOS through the Operating System. And i think we can all guess what im about to say... They don't work. It may just be for this model, as i've not tried them on others, but the BIOS password for the FSC 1320D does not get reset using this applications.

So, the verdict?
Apparently you can submit your laptop back to Fujitsu Siemens for an 'Out of warranty repair', and they will reset it for you. Assumingly by changing the BIOS chip completely. The only downside to this is that it can cost anything from £50 - £150 depending on service charges and delivery costs. My opinion, wasting time on a laptop that is past its sell-by date like the FSC 1320D is really not something you want to be doing. Buy a new laptop and sell the 1320D for spare parts.

How to Clear BIOS Password

Method 1 of 3: Using the Password Breaker

  • 1. Using another computer, load up your Internet browser. Go to this website, and write down the code shown on the locked computer.

  • 2. Pay the Small fee, and then enter the code you have written down. A few codes will be provided, so try them all until you find the one that works.
This also works for locked HDD drives, so make sure you take a look.
  • 3. You're computer is now unlocked! Keep the backup password handy, this will be invaluable if you locked out of you're pc again.
Method 2 of 3: Reset Jumpers to Clear a CMOS Password
  • 1. Unplug the computer and remove all peripheral connections like monitors and printers.
  • 2. Reduce electrostatic discharge (ESD). Wear a wrist strap to eliminate ESD, or make sure 1 hand is holding a metal piece while you are working inside the computer. Wear rubber soled shoes, and stand on an ESD mat if possible.
  • 3. Open the computer. Locate the CMOS jumper. The jumper will usually consist of 3 pins, though on the rare occasion, 2 pins (requiring you to supply the jumper itself). This often is labeled with "clear," "cmos," "password" or some abbreviation that indicates it is the password jumper. It is usually located near the CMOS battery, or processor. In laptops, it is often a dipswitch at the bottom of the laptop. Consult your motherboard documentation to find the location if you are unsure of where it is located.
  • 4. Make note of which pins the jumper covers. Remove the jumper. Reinstall it so that it covers the pin that is currently not covered. For example, if it covers pins 2 and 3, change it so that it covers pins 1 and 2.
  • 5. Reassemble the computer, and re-connect the power. Turn on the computer. Check to see that the password is cleared.

  • 6. Turn off the computer. Disconnect the power cord, and open it. Change the jumper settings back to the original position.
Method 3 of 3: Other Methods to Clear a BIOS Password
Clear BIOS Password Step 7.jpg
  • 1. Search online for generic CMOS passwords. Older computers sometimes have a generic password set by the manufacturer. To find one, search for the name of your manufacturer. Keep in mind that the computer password may have changed or no longer is in use.
Clear BIOS Password Step 8.jpg
  • 2. Download a utility to bypass the computer password. These can be found online and loaded with a CD or floppy disk.
Clear BIOS Password Step 9.jpg
  • 3. Take out the CMOS battery. Leave it out for longer than 5 minutes, and then reseat it. This will clear all BIOS settings, including the password. Keep in mind that you will have to reset the BIOS date, time and other settings.
Clear BIOS Password Step 10.jpg
  • 4. Contact the manufacturer. Find information about the motherboard, and call either the motherboard or computer manufacturer. They can tell you whether there is a CMOS default password or solder beads that must be jumped.

I need to reset the administrator password for bios for model dell inspiron 8600

To reset the Bios Password do the following.

If you know the Bios Password then when you boot the machine look for which key is required to press to get you into the Bios or System Setup. Once inside you can change the password if you know the current password.

If you don't know the Bios Password, then you will need to unplug the laptop and you will need to remove the CMOS Battery from the laptop that is on the motherboard. Some computer models make getting to the CMOS battery simple by remove the Hard Drive or Memory Chip door on the bottom of the laptop and voila there it is. I fyou can get to the CMOS Battery remove it and let the laptop sit a couple of hours before replacing it. This clears the computer's memory of everything including the BIOS Password. Most manufacturers make it a difficult task which means you will have to disassemble your laptop to get to it. If you are uncomfortable doing that then get a quote from your local computer repair shops, then check the guys out at: They will repair it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS and most times it's cheaper than any quote you received even with the shipping included.

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I suspect you have hard drive errors and a replacement hard drive will fix your problem
Before you order a replacement hard drive from ebay or who ever, run CHKDSK/F first. That may find and fix your error.
Hope this helps.
