The only real thing you can do is to remove your cmos battery for about 5 mins and reset the password. The battery is on the mother board, It looks like a watch battery.Just pop it out and wait for about five mins and you should be good to go. Make sure you unplug the computer before you do this.

Hello,
Last time, when my Samsung mobile phone was locked by password, I also forgot the password and tried to disable the password protection functions by using the ways searched over the internet.
Maybe it may also work for your iOMega mobile phone.

My nephhew just bought a gateway w350a t series laptop at auction ,the bios is password protected,does anyone know where the cmos battery is ,i cant find it anywhere. i took off all accessable covers and...


The CMOS battery is attached to the underside of the motherboard. you will need to carefully disassemble the entire laptop to access it. If there is a bios password there is no way to tell if there is an issue with the HDD. I would start with removing the CMOS and then resetting the Motherboard using the reset jumper. You need to look up the board and find where the reset jumper is, probably through a web forum or the manufacturer website. after resetting and replacing the battery, you may still run into issues...the password may be set through a TPM chip. This chip stores the security settings in flash memory. The jumper may reset this also, but I am not 100% on that.

How do I remove forgotten BIOS password?


1) You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing <Alt><F>

2) I am not sure about the laptops, but in the Dell Desktops usually there is a reset jumper on the motherboard which is seated on 2pins out of 3, you just need to remove that jumper turn on the pc once and the turn on the pc again by reseating the jumper to its original place. You can try this with your laptop, I guess the jumper should be somewhere close to the CMOS battery.

3) Remove the battery and keep it away for atleast 30 mins. and replace it again.

NOTE: make sure while following step (3) and (4) the system should be completely turned off. Unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery and hold the power button for atleast 8 - 10 seconds.

let me know the output

Lost password for Laptop


the cmos only works for the bios passwords. The only way is to have a authorized technician reset it because its stored on your harddrive
