Why do I keep getting a pop up asking for my password over and over again on a black screen?


If this occurs on a Window-based PC prior to seeing the Windows Start screen, it most likely means that someone has entered a System Password into the CMOS/BIOS that requires entry before the system will boot. If your CMOS/BIOS was not password-protected anyone who had access to the machine would be able to enter the CMOS and set up such a password, effectively locking you out. Of course, it they did not put a password on the CMOS itself, you may be able to enter the CMOS yourself and remove the password, as long as you do not have to know it to remove it. If you MUST know the password, you may have to do a CMOS reset to release the password. Ensure that if you do that, you know all settings in the CMOS that need to be modified from default or you may have operational issues later. If there is a CMOS password on the system as well, and you did not place it there, someone is messing with your head.

How to reset or remove BIOS password


There are four common categories of solutions to remove or reset a BIOS password and here are the details on how to go about resetting your BIOS password.<br /> <br /><b>Manufacturer Backdoor BIOS Password</b><br /><br />Most of the BIOS makers have set a backdoor password on the older computer models. That is the master password for BIOS. To reset BIOS passwords first you need to check the manufacturer of your computer's BIOS. Most computers have BIOS include AMI, IBM, Award, and Phoenix. These are the most common BIOS. You can unlock your locked BIOS using this master password. It works, no matter what the user sets the password to. Many popular computer and laptop manufacturers such as HP and DELL lock the BIOS because they want to protect their machine's most sensitive areas (those areas which have warranty) from their customers. These passwords are usually used by computer technicians for testing and repairing. <br /><br /><b>Reset the jumper that holds the password<br /></b><br />Open the computer and locate on the motherboard the BIOS password jumper. The jumper is usually jumper 1 and often labeled as PSWD, PWD, CLRPWD, CLEAR, JCMOS1, CLR, CLEAR CMOS, PASSWD, or PASSWORD. Normally you would have 3 pins and to reset the password you just need to put the jumper on the 2 and 3 pins leaving pin 1 empty. After you move the jumper, turn the computer on to clear the password, then once password removed turn it off and put the jumper back to its original position.<br /><br /><b>Removing the CMOS Battery to reset the BIOS to default</b><br /><br />Switch off your computer, and open up the case. You'll see a circular metallic silver item on motherboard. This is called CMOS Battery. Remove it carefully, and leave it out for about 2 minutes. This act will remove the CMOS memory which contains BIOS password. Set the CMOS battery back and switch on the computer. Restore the CMOS configuration as default. Your BIOS password has been cleared now. <br /><br /><b>Using third party software utility to reset BIOS password</b><br /><br />To reset BIOS you can use third party software like Kill CMOS which wipes out CMOS, or CmosPwd which is a BIOS utility. Hiren's Boot CD has a few programs including the above two that will help you to reset the password. Here is a link to Hirens Boot CD website <a href="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/">http://www.hirensbootcd.org/</a>. To download the latest version, click on the Download link on the left side and go to the last page. You will need a CD writer to put the content on a blank CD.

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.

Forgot password for bios setting


For this issue if you need to fix it with your self you need to follow the instruction from me. First you need to open your unit. Locate where the CMOS battery located.

The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is.

If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

I need help reseting bios password


Hi,
  1. Power off the computer and make sure that it is unplugged.
  2. Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure.200px-cmosbatt_771.jpg
  3. Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery.
  4. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 700 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Set the battery back into place and power on the computer.
  5. The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine.
  6. You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it
