Question about ECS 945G-M3 (V3.0) Motherboard

945GCT-M/1333 BIOS chip

Hello,
I'm trying to identify the BIOS chip on this board. Towards one edge near the CMOS jumper contact is an eight pin socketed chip that's removeable and at the opposite side is a surfaced mounted "soldered-in" chip that is labelled, "AMIBIOS" with several numbers on it.
Appreciate your advise.

You have answered your own question.

Its an Ami-bios chip.

If you want to update it you need to go to the motherboard manufacturer's support pages and download the bios from there.

The Bios is programmed specifically for your motherboard, so you can't just use any old bios update.

Lost bios password which was the serial and dont have it is there a way to bypass


Hello

First, remove the case to look at the motherboard, so we can try resetting the CMOS battery. This battery looks a shiny little disk the size of a nickel. Pry the battery free gently, and reinsert the battery after 10 minutes. If this worked and you don't see the password prompt, you don't need any more steps; the problem is fixed. In my experience, two or more additional steps might be necessary depending on the make of the BIOS. Unfortunately, they don't all respond to the same tricks.

Next, now that the case is already removed, locate the jumpers near the edge of the board or near the CPU or the CMOS battery. Once located, find the label that will say clear CMOS, or clear password, etc. Place the jumper over the pins and boot. If this works, no more steps are needed. If it doesn't work, read on.

The third step to try is to enter a password. When you receive the password prompt, try one of the following passwords. If you have an Award BIOS, try these; AWARD PW, ALFAROME, or _award. If you have Phoenix BIOS try, CMOS, PHOENIX, or BIOS.

If none of these things have worked, as a last resort, try a software utility that resets system passwords. These utilities can be found online.

Forgot Toshiba qosimo F15-AV201 cmos password


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How to break the bios password?


Hello,

All you need to do is just to power off your system, remove the battery and unscrew all the screws that will lead you to your board.

When you are at the board, remove the cmos battery of your laptop and put back your laptop battery to power on the laptop for a while, power on without the cmos battery, your laptop will be reset and will not ask of the bios password anymore.

After it has been reset, you can now put back the cmos battery and couple everything back.

Your laptop will work without asking you bios password anymore.

Take care

Not only the chip inside the motherboard can do it. All you have to do to DISABLE Jumper Setting near by Lithium CR2032 Battery or else in the motherboard by removing in a second (10 secs.) Then put back again and the BIOS were back into default setting.
