BIOS is a software program that controls basic functions in your computer, such as boot order, keyboard control and how your processor interacts with memory cards. If you get an "NTLDR Is Missing" error, inspect your BIOS utility to make sure your computer is booting up from the right place.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS
after you make any changes in BIOS press Esc then press the F10 button save to cmos to restart
cmos is located in BIOS
hope this helps

Password on Bios of sony vaio VPCEB46FG


You don't need to put a bios password on it.

If the bios already has a password on it then it will not let you boot the computer without you putting it in. It sounds like you are already booted up and into the bios, if that is true don't set a bios password.

How to update medion ms-7502 Bios?


You download the BIOS update from here. In case you don't speak German, here's the translation:
  1. Download bios7502.exe
  2. Double-click the file and unzip (default is C:\Medion)
  3. Go to the location where you unzipped the files and run WinFlash.exe
  4. You can save you old bios (just in case) as i.e. oldbios.bin
  5. Now open the new bios version with the name W7502MLN.10R and start the update process by clicking the update button.
  6. Reboot and you're done.
Note: Don't run anything else when you're doing this and do not interrupt the process until the reboot is complete. You could risk rendering your BIOS unusable!

Please can you tell me how to reset the cmos on a samsung R510 Laptop


Hello you just have to remove the cmos battery:


10_18_2012_1_51_22_pm.gif
Press the release pad and the battery will pop out
DO NOT have any power on disconnect all power and usb cables
when you do that.

Wait for 10 min. or so with the battery out
and the bios will reset back to factory settings.

Replace the battery and boot up your machine and enter the bios
you kave to configure the boot order.

Here is some youtube videos how you do that:

But it depends what bios you have.

Good luck

I neeb bios update for sahara laptop al096


Don't do it unless there is a VERY COMPELLING REASON. BIOS flash upgrades don't always go well. If it fails for ANY reason, you are out of business ... rarely can you go back with success.

This is a case of if it ain't broke - don't fix it.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

The Bios may be having an issue.
Try clearing your bios.
Also check to see if you have a Bios update available for that motherboard.
Check your CMOS\BIOS battery also.

I have lost the bios password... any body help me to recover without opening case


This is a tricky one because the BIOS password is made to be the hardest password on a computer to break. Some manufacturers allow you to enter BIOS without the BIOS password but most do not. Here are some troubleshooting methods starting with the easiest and moving on to the hardest.

To enter BIOS hit the F2 key repeatedly as the computer boots up. You should enter BIOS after the first loading screen. If this does not send you into BIOS, try the ESC, DEL, and F1 keys. Once in BIOS find where you can set the password and reset it or enter a blank password as your new password.

If you can't access BIOS or are prompted for a password once you enter BIOS, try the following methods to flush the BIOS password cache:
1. Contact your manufacturer's support and ask if they have a backdoor BIOS password that they will allow you to use. This works to allow you to enter that password instead of your own and easily fixes the whole problem, but not all companies will tell you their password. You can also do a google search for your manufacturer's backdoor BIOS password since many of them have been discovered.
2. Send your laptop to your manufacturer to have them reset the password manually, although this takes an undisclosed amount of time and they will often make you pay a fee if you are not under warranty.
3. If you don't want to pay your manufacturer, open your laptop and locate the motherboard. On the motherboard there is a CMOS battery, if you don't know where this is use your PC manual. Remove the CMOS battery for an hour and then place it back on the motherboard. This should reset the password. After this turn on your computer and enter BIOS. This will reset all your BIOS settings so it may take a few minutes to open. After it is open, just exit BIOS and everything should be working properly. Just be very careful when opening the laptop and handling the CMOS battery because you can severely damage your laptop if you don't handle it properly.

Thanks for using FixYa and good luck!

Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

Regards,
JJ
