My friend computer is asking for a password to start the BIOS

I was trying to remove the client for Services for Netware but since the computer has the OS in Spanish I made a mistake and select the last function on the list and when I reboot,now the computer is asking me
to write a password so the BIOS is blocked.

I am using Acer travelmate 4052 model for past 6 years. I used password for booting system. Today I tried to remove my BIOS password using BIOS setting. System asked me current password. So I entered the...


Try "1" or "/" or "A" or some messy combination of keys because it seems like you probably had a typo during setting the new password. Try "Spacebar" try "]" or "[" etc for a password, if you can figure it out you can reset it to nothing again just be careful. Otherwise research acer travelmate bios password removal. Also that computer is kind of old, so if there's nothing on it of importance, I'd replace it. If you need data try your friendly computer shop.

My dell inspiron 1100 keep say need password authentication system. cant access the data on the computer without the correct password... primary or admin i dont have either...


Take out the HD and ask a friend to look for "Password Remover" DL it. Connect the HD via USB cable and run the software, when asked what you want to do with it, click Remove password. But if is it's in the BIOS, take it to a repaire shop or remove the BIOS battery for 24 hrs, this somethings works.

It says its protected by a password authentication


If it is a Bios or Boot Password try " admin " , if it's just a windows or netware login , download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
Burn the disc image to a blank cd & boot the Dell Laptop with the Disc , hit enter to load from the disc , then use the proper bios tool or password reset tool .

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a


Hi,
When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?


The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

hi there u may have to ask your friend for the password,
if the password is set in the BIOS(in the computer hardware)
try removing the bios battery this will erase the hardware configuration saved on the mainboard, dunno if it'll kill the password set.
there will be no ther way iknow, perhaps <bios flashing, but this only laptop techs can do, u need extra chips and software for that, pretty expensive

if you just cannot access windows, just reinstall another copy of it and set your own password then.(you will have to install all the programs again!)

you could reinstall windows but first would have to use a system rescue cd and wipe HD clean. Otherwise you can try to press ESC key 3 times to bypass password
