Hi..

Common procedure in resetting the password is by resetting the motherboard by reseating the CMOS battery. You need to access you motherbard and locate the circular silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is much bigger in size compared to a wristwatch battery. (CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds.) This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Put the the battery back in and turn on the computer.

Other procedure is the jumper reset. Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

after the reset to default process is complete, you can begin the process of formatting.

regards

My laptop asus g1s i need password bios for it I'm not putting it but it show after i fixed i problem in Graphics card


you may have had a bad graphics card. if it workes after changing the graphics card, the bios is still locked, but not for use when powering on the system. without a regular bios password, you cannot enter the setup from the startup menu. with a bios security password, you will need a password to unlock the screen preventing it from starting, this password can chain to a hard disk password unlocked by placing the system security password, which will then provide a prompt for the hard disk password. :) one locks the setup for the whole system. one locks the system from starting up, and one locks the hard disk from being read. there are three. without knowing the password, if the computer will not start and load your system, ie windows mac osx, you can have someone retrieve the password, or change the motherboard. if it starts, most people don't worry about it. if it cost more to have someone resolder the bios chip, replace the main or motherboard. if it starts and runs, use it and don't worry about it. :)

How to remove bios password


What brand of PC are you using? If Dell, there is a hidden backdoor. Go into the BIOS (or setup screen) and navigate to the screen that allows you to set a password. Try inputting "admin" (without quotes) when you select it. As a new password, type in no password (don't type in a password) for the first and conformation password.

Hope I helped!

How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD


If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! www.ebay.com type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check www.download.com some software may be free.

Bios Password Blockd


You have to use F10 to get into setup to restore defaults. Default is no password. When you change all the setup you wanted and save all the changes then you leave setup to restart the system. If you then get blue screen, you do the ctrl-alt-del to get task manager. Which can have new task config, you click ok. Don't put in any password again in setup or task manager. Learn setup and task manager software?

I have dell inspiron 1545 bios password and don't know what to do!


I use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Dell_Bios.php to get the bios master password that clears the current bios password. You then have full access to the bios setup. I have use them many times with no problems. I come across a lot of Dell laptops that have their bios password set for no reason. I think there may be a bug in the bios that causes it to set bios password.

How do i change bios settings on a laptop that wont let me passed the hdd password


BIOS passwords on a laptop would be especially tricky to override, especially on a laptop, you will have to take the laptop to a service provider for the specified laptop brand, and have them wipe/replace the chip that contains the password. Hope this helps.

The security password is set in the system BIOS. You must boot to the setup of the laptop and change it there to be nothing. You must know the password to set it to nothing.

Supervisor Password Tosh 2410


If you don't know these passwords, then I don't think there is any way to unlock it. But reformatting your hard drive and reinstalling an operating system will fix this, and it will allow you to reset your own passwords. Hope this helps. If you don't wish to do it this way, then contact your computer's manufacturer and sk them for help; or you can also google the problem that you are having, and see if any solutions come up. Thanks
