Question about Computers & Internet
is a risk of data loss. Be sure to set a password that will be easy for
you to remember, because by setting a BIOS password you are limiting
access to the computer only to users who know that password. If the BIOS
password is ever forgotten you will not be able to access the computer
and it may be necessary to perform a system recovery in order to regain
access. This is from their support site.
If you have recovery CD do a recovery if not purchase one. Do a complete restore and recovery often times you can pull the back off where the CMOS battery is located and pull the battery out for about 25 seconds and it may reset it to default for you to access your Windows Operating System again.
There is also software that you can download that will clear the BIOS as well. On laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard, you need an eeprom programmer (electronic device) to retrieve it. Also a great resource for free password removal for laptops is Click Here I hope that this assisted you in your issue with BIOS password access. This is why unless you are really needing to block the BIOS I never set passwords period I also recommend people do not set a password there really is no reason to. Unless you know that someone is going to access this and change anything most folks do not even know how to get there. If you do need a password set make sure that you will remember it I think you have figured that out by now. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
