Hi:
You need the manual.
You also need to know what bios you have.

Take the battery out for 24 hours.

Most motherboards I have worked on will not discharge in only a half hour. You need a lot more time than that.

You can also clear the cmos on the jumpers. Be sure you know which jumpers, otherwise you may damage the board.
By shorting two of three jumpers, the cmos will be cleared to factory settings.
thanks,

Got a dell latitude e6400series forgot bios password can i fix this problem ?


Welcome to Fixya

Common procedure in resetting the password is by resetting the motherboard by reseating the CMOS battery. You need to access you motherbard and locate the circular silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is much bigger in size compared to a wristwatch battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Put the the battery back in and turn on the computer.

Other procedure is the jumper reset. Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

If procedures above has been done and yet you are getting same results. Its time to call you manufacturer and have the motherboard re-flushed or re-imaged.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I need a password to put it back to factory


I Hope you are asking the bios password. I f so then remove the c-mos battery then start the system. Once the display comes, switch it off then put the battery again, then start the system. After which go to the bios setup & do what ever you want. this is called bios refresh.

I have problem with the lock paswerd


If you have a BIOS level Password (Before Windows) contact Dell Tech support (800-624-9896 USA) confirm ownership and they can assist in clearing the password.

If it is a Windows Password, you will most likely have to either remember the password, boot to admin account in Safe mode (If XP Home) and change the password there, or reinstall windows

Acer Travel mate 517TE C MOS low battery warning msf at Power up


If you clear the cmos you are just loading the defalt bios settings but not solving the problem.
In this case you dont have to clear the cmos but instead replace the cmos battery.

PASSWORD PROBLEMS


Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
