Cant remerber bios password on presario A900 laptop and cant unplug internal battery


Step 1:
Acer laptops are equipped with a BIOS utility. The BIOS (which stands for "Basic Input Output System") acts as an interface between the hardware and software installed on the computer. On some computers, a BIOS password may be required in order to boot the computer and make changes to the BIOS settings. If you are unable to access the BIOS settings and do not know how to reset the BIOS password, you might be tempted to send the computer back to the manufacturer for repair. Fortunately, that's not necessary as there is a simple way to do this on your own.

Go to "Start," then perform a search for "Command Prompt." The Windows Start button is located in the lower-left corner of your computer screen. Double-click on "Command Prompt" to open the application. You will need to use MS-DOS commands to reset the BIOS password. Type the following commands one by one in the order shown: debug o 70 2E o 71 FF quit Make sure that you are typing the letter "o" and not a zero at the beginning of the second and third commands. Reboot your computer by clicking "Start," "Shutdown," and then "Restart." The BIOS password will now be reset to default.

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,

You might have some luck with this offline password recovery tool, just burn it to a CD and then boot from it, it should give you the option to either change or blank out the password:

I have a SYNET07526 Prroduct name Netbook. The problem I'm having is that it keeps asking for a password but I dont know it because I only got this thing yesterday, and I never gave it a password


In order to help you with your password problem, I need some details:
-Is the screen asking for password a black screen just at the start up of the computer?
-Is the screen asking for password just after the Windows started, asking for user and password?
-Has the computer available cd/dvd rom in order to use it as a boot device?
-What is the operating system you use on this computer, if the computer haas ever started? (Windows XP, Vista, Win 7)

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.

Brand new hp pavilion dv2839tx entered pass word & it`s not reconised,try to reset password,informed to use floppy disc or usb flash drive & try again,i have done this with blank floppy disc,still...


Let me help you with that concern!

First, the computer asks you for a Password Reset Disk right? And then you inserted a BLANK Floppy Disk since you dont have a Flash Drive. But here is the thing, the computer is asking you a "Password Reset Disk" and in order for you to do that is, after you created a password into your account at your computer, the computer suggests to create a reset disk by inserting a floppy drive or a flash drive. And what the computer is doing is copying the password data into the floppy drive or to a flash drive. So inserting a blank floppy drive will do nothing on recovering your password. You need a password reset disk, but then again i think you did created a reset disk, so what you can do is to Reinstall the Operating System. I know your files are important but that is the only last resource that we can do. My suggestion is just back up all your files by inserting you hard drive into another laptop or you can just call drivesavers. You may visit their website at www.drivesavers.com and this is only a tip if still want to backup your files. But the resolution is still reinstalling the operating system.

Thanks!
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!
