Hi again,

If your motherboard is for a desktop, there would often be a 3 terminal jumper very near the Lithium battery marked CMOS Reset. A jumper is currently positioned shorting one end and the center, temporarily removing this jumper and moving it to the opposite end/pair would reset the CMOS/BIOS. Alternately, you can also remove the 3.0Volts coin size battery for about 30 minutes wold reset the CMOS/BIOS.

Cheers.

I want to reset BOIS password for Gigabyte GA EP43 motherboard which has no jumper, i try to remove battery but the problem unsolved~


There is a CLR CMOS jumper on that MB next to the SYS FAN 2 connector by the IDE header

open = no clr
jumped= Clear CMOS

From the manual page 32

Use this jumper to clear the CMOS values (e.g. date information and BIOS configurations) and

reset the CMOS values to factory defaults. To clear the CMOS values, place a jumper cap on the

two pins to temporarily short the two pins or use a metal object like a screwdriver to touch the two

pins for a few seconds.

• Always turn off your computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before

clearing the CMOS values.

• After clearing the CMOS values and before turning on your computer, be sure to remove

the jumper cap from the jumper. Failure to do so may cause damage to the motherboard.

• After system restart, go to BIOS Setup to load factory defaults (select Load Optimized

Defaults) or manually configure the BIOS settings (refer to Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," for

BIOS configurations).

How can i remove the Bios password on dell latitude E6400 THANKS


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Are you the one who set up the BIOS password? If not, unfortunately, there's no way for us to retrieved the password. The only way you can reset the password to default settings is to reseat the CMOS battery on the motherboard, its a circular thing that looks like a battery of a watch,sometimes a pin hold it, just detached it then wait for at least 30 minutes then connect it back again,
Note: Before you reseat the CMOS battery,make sure that everything is unplugged on the computer, like AC adapter,battery and all external devices...
Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

I changed some BIOS settings for CPU speed and memory, now it wont boot - how do i reset the BIOS back when I cant get to the BIOS screen? Soyo K7V Dragon motherboard


Hi:) Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in so you have no static problems. Open the computer tower and on the motherboard near the Cmos Battery there is a blue or red jumper that covers 2 of 3 pins move it to the other side of the 3 pins for 30 seconds then put it back that will reset the bios to default.

Sir my toshiba laptop is under bioword and i donnot know password .sir, listen how to open motherbroad satille a205-s5861 thank u sir


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

Hi Benimur


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern, initially pls try:
  • remove the memory sticks;
  • clean both slots with a clean dry toothbrush/paintbrush. You could also use a can of compressed air or an electronic contact cleaner spray;
  • clean the little gold pins of the memory using a pencil eraser.
  • If the above is not sufficient to address the issue, pls try resetting your CMOS/BIOS to default condition.
This is of course assuming that there is no hardware fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

You can do a CMOS/BIOS reset which will clear all the configurations including any password(s).

To reset the CMOS/BIOS. you need to open the case of your desktop PC and locate the jumper (JP1) for this purpose on the motherboard. It is located near the AGP Port, below the AMR1 connector. You need to move the jumper from the 2 pins where it is currently located and move it to the opposite pair (center pin will be common of course). After a few seconds place back to original position.

On reboot, press "Del" key to enter CMOS/BIOS setup, select Standard/BIOS default, Save & Exit, reboot "Del" key again, set to your preferences.

Good luck and kind regards.
