How to Reset a BIOS Password

Instructions.1.1
Unplug the computer from the outlet. If you don't you could electrocute yourself or destroy the computer as you reset the BIOS password.

2.2
Wait 5-10 minutes for the capacitors in the computer to lose its charge.

3.3
Now open the side of the computer exposing the motherboard. Now, look for the battery on the motherboard. Most batteries will look like a watch or hearing aid battery. Some will look more like a AAA batteries wrapped in plastic though.

4.4
Once you find the battery look at how it is held on the mother board. Most have a small clip that holds the battery in place. By removing the battery the motherboard loses its ability to hold memory, and rests the BIOS password. If the motherboard battery with a clip that sits on the battery check for a small clip on the side of the battery to slide it out.

5.5
Using a small screwdriver to slide back any clips and take out the battery.

6.6
Wait 5 minutes to reset the BIOS password.

7.7
Replace the battery, put the cover back on and restart the computer. Now the computer should have a cleared BIOS password.

We'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

BIOS passwords are used to add some extra security to computers. You can either set a password to prevent access to BIOS settings or to prevent PC from booting.

But sometimes this extra security might become a pain when you forget the BIOS password or someone changes your system BIOS password intentionally.

But there is no need to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:

By removing the CMOS battery
By using the motherboard jumper
By using MS DOS command
By using software
By using Backdoor BIOS password
Now I'll try to explain each method one by one:

A. By Removing the CMOS Battery:

Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

C. By Using MS DOS Command:
This method works only if you have access to the system when its turned on because this method requires MS DOS. Open Command Prompt from Programs menu and provide following commands one bye one:

debug
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
quit

NOTE: The first character in the above commands is "O" and not the number 0.

After providing the above commands, restart your system and it should reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password.

If you are curious to know how it works? then let me explain the above commands:

In this method we are using the Debug tool of MS DOS. The "O" character present at first in these commands, outputs the values to IO ports. The number 70 and 71 are port numbers which are used to access CMOS memory. By providing FF value we are telling CMOS that there is an invalid checksum and it resets the CMOS settings as well as BIOS password.

D. By Using Software:
There are a few software which can also reset CMOS settings or BIOS password or both within a few clicks. But as stated above you should have access to a system which is turned on and should have access to MS DOS or MS Windows:

KillCMOS

!BIOS

CmosPwd

E. By Using Backdoor BIOS Password:
Some BIOS manufacturer put a backdoor password in BIOS which always works irrespective of what password you have set in BIOS. Its a master password which is used for testing and troubleshooting purposes.

And i assumed you knew something about "booting up the computer or laptop to get into the BIOS" .. You don't even get into "windows" at this point in time when BOOTING into the BIOS.
The Windows OS has nothing to do with your motherboard.

He talk about a password in bios on power-up not to acces the bios, I revived many laptop that can not read the hard disk as well that the acces to bios not work!

To be simple you only see a window where they invite you to put a focking password!

There is nothing new with it!

Instructions.Things You'll Need:
Second Computer
Internet connection
PC Cmos Cleaner program
Image Burner program
CD Burner
Burnable CD
1.1
Download a free CMOS password removal tool. "PC Cmos Cleaner" is a popular program that works on laptops. Go to the download page and click "Download." Select "Save As." If you cannot start your laptop, you will need to download this file onto another computer and continue with the following steps.

2.2
Burn the .iso file to a CD using an image burning program. Many CD burning programs such as Nero have the ability to burn ISO files. If you do not have one already, you can download a free program such as "ImgBurn." Go to the download page and save the file to your computer. Double-click on the downloaded file to start the install.

3.3
Open the "ImgBurn" program (or other ISO burning program). Next to the "Source" section, select the Folder and magnifying glass icon. Choose the "PCCMOSCleaner.iso" file you downloaded. Now insert a burnable CD into the computer and select "Start." The program will let you know once it has finished burning the image file.

4.4
Tell your original laptop to boot from the CD drive. You will need to access the BIOS first. Different computer models have different keyboard buttons that need to be pressed in order to start up the BIOS. Dell, for instance, requires you to press "Ctrl+Alt+Enter" while Compaq computers use the "F10" key. Once in the BIOS, navigate to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Device Priority" option. Select your CD drive as the first boot option and save these settings.

5.5
Insert the burned CD into the laptop and restart the computer. The program will automatically start up.

6.6
Click "Next" to start the password removal tool. The program will give you a list of standard BIOS passwords for your computer model. You can try these first and see if they are correct. After this, you will be given the option to reset the BIOS to its default state. This will erase the BIOS password and all your system settings

He can't access to his CD drive without this password!

The only way is put the good password, remove the Bios battery or put a jumper under the keyboard!

Do a search for his laptop!

I guess you have to take down the memory bank and do the electro discharge on the bios. If it does not work, the notebook should be sent to the repairing station.
