Most BIOS are set purposely by the owner. A lot of BIOS passwords I have seen that are default is "clear". If you cant get into it that way, you will have to find a way to open it up and remove the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS.

My laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 is locked with password in BIOS SETUP It does not recognise the original password

Wow, as I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro. I'm sorry, but there is no easy way out of this if you have enabled a bios lock. It is looking for a password that "someone" set up. I say that because there is no bios password when you setup the machine. Also, the bios password is completely different from the user or system password. (Although you could make them the same.)

Please find the person you got the computer from; type in the correct password; and be aware that it is case sensitive. Make sure the caps key is not accidentally down.

- there is no original bios password; you would have needed to set it, and remember it. There is no recovery (that I'm aware of) to a mis-placed bios password.

I forgot the BIOS password and cannot use my computer. Is there a jumper switch or block that will disable the password? If I remove the CMOS battery will that erase the password?

I need to know the Manufacturer Name and Model of the Laptop you are talking about in order to answer your question. I am sorry.. Remember to provide us with as much information and details as possible for the best results, ok?

Not able to get into bios settings to change password

Sorry, but the lock on the hard-disk was designed to keep a THIEF from accessing your hard-disk, after stealing your laptop. So, there's no way for that protection to be defeated. Buy a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, unless you can remember the password.

Problem of my sony vaio grz610 is on bios..when you open it, it has password already.what will i do?

Thanks for the clarification! How old is your laptop? On older models you can sometimes pull the power/battery and then take out the CMOS battery (hopefully not soldered) for a good while, then re-try. Of course this entails taking apart the laptop. On newer models, especially Sony, as the previous poster mentioned the BIOS PW is stored in EEPROM (non-volatile memory) so the battery method no longer works. There are some other options that I've seen work, such as:
--Backdoor/Manufacturer BIOS password. Depending on the BIOS (Award, Megatrend, AMI, Biostar, Soyo, etc.) there is sometimes a mnfr. PW used for maintenance/repair. There are lists around, but I've never used that on a Sony laptop. --I've seen a few keys work while at the password prompt that have bypassed it, but obviously this would be different for different models/manufacturers. This was also on older models. A few that I remember are pressing: *ENTER *DEL *ALT --Re-flashing the BIOS --Shorting the jumpers/pins. As a last resort I have cleared the BIOS by shorting 2 pins together or even the two CMOS battery points. NOT FOR AMATEURS!!! To accomplish this successfully, you really need to have the motherboard schematics and to know exactly what pins you are looking for. This isn't for the faint of heart; really only as a last resort if it is the only way you might be able to access your laptop, as you can run the risk of frying the laptop. -There are a number of software programs that can help depending on your situation. If, however, it IS a BIOS password (not a HD password) that is stored on an EEPROM chip, I have not personally used or seen one that has worked.
Otherwise, you pretty much have to bite the bullet, call the manufacturer, and pay them their blood money to replace/re-flash your chip. For this you will usually need to provide proof of ownership and some cash, unless it is still under warranty.
I'm sorry, I wish I had an easy answer for you, but BIOS passwords aren't made to be easy to bypass. I hope I helped with at least some additional information. Good Luck and let me know if you have any further info or developments! --WhiteHatH4x0r

Reset bios password in laptop sahara

Password reset would depend on, whether you remember the password or not. If you do remember then go to the bios by tapping f8 at the booting time and select the password option and reset it. And if you don't, take out the c mos battery after opening the laptop from the backside and replace it after few minutes. This will reset your bios password.

Do not remember default password


Due to nature of your problem and for security reasons the only options available to you are contacting the manufacturer or doing a FULL
system recovery.
