Question about Computers & Internet
According the one of your posts on FixYa you reset bios to clear the password. How did you do this? I got a password to enter the bios that I can't remember.
This should be able to be solved by opening the Ram bay and shorting out two solder points. Usually marked with a "xxx". The notebook should be started with these solder points shorted. Once the pc is on, it should go through the normal process without asking for a bios password. Once the pc is restarted, the CMOS password should disappear.

The only way to do this is to remove the cmos battery for 5 mins or so or short the jumpers on motherboard, battery way is easier

Hello, I´ve tried it several times with the shorting method and nothing happened, but then i changed the hard drive for another one and everything changed, the F2 and F12 options came back. Then i´ve put on the original drive and these options still remains active. Sorry for my english. bye
