Preferred Solution: Bios password locked

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sorry but forum rules prevent us from assisting with any form of password issues as we cannot confirm ownership.

This is not any sort of accusation but our advice is to visit a local IT technician, who should be able to resolve your issue after confirming ownership

Hello , I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista Home. I am trying to access the system BIOS and it has a red password log in screen. I tried to guess and enter several log in passwords including  the word DELL and none of them worked. I didn't want to enter too many wrong passwords because I didn't know if the system would lock me out. Can anyone help me by pass the BIOS log in password or some how disable it ? Thank You in advance.

I have a Gateway G6-400c celeron.

There is a password set, so that when you first turn on your computer the first thing it does is ask you for a password before it even goes through the boot up, and I of course do not remember the password. I have had this computer sitting in storage for several years and I forgot I even set a password.

Is there a way around this password? so I can access the computer?

I can not access the BIOS to reset the boot order or do anything at all for that matter.

Hi bpsman,

There must be a jumper to remove from the motherboard. You will have to retrieve the motherboard map to know what jumper may be removed and replugged (it will delete the password).

A:Don't know administrator password and BIOS is locked

You might try reading the documentation by the manufacturer of said system.  Some BIOS passwords can be overcome...some cannot.  Either the user manual or the repair manual for the system in question...would probably cover that information.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Disk Drive MK5075GSX (2.5" SATA HDD) that used to be in my Toshiba Satellite C855-12L laptop.

I've put a password on BIOS (probably on HDD too). When I restarted the laptop, sometime BIOS would ask for a BIOS password, sometimes it would ask for a HDD password. I would always enter the same password, and the system would boot.

Since my laptop died (motherboard), I got stuck with the locked HDD. I installed it in another device, where BIOS tells me HDD password is set.

I'm trying the same password, but it says it's the wrong one. I'm using a certain set off passwords for years, so I'm pretty sure the password's not the problem. I wanna know what the problem is, and how can I unlock the drive, without loosing my data?

It is very stupid situation now. If your notebook is ?locked? by BIOS password you have big problem now and nobody here can help you. BIOS password must be removed by authorized service provider.
BIOS password is very important security feature so any problem with locked machine must be handled by ASP. There are several different methods for BIOS password removal and it has nothing to do with BIOS backup or some kind of new BIOS installation.

I have a customer's Lenovo Desktop that has a corrupted Microsoft Account Password, thus preventing access to the PC. Changing the password does not work as it appears this must be done on the affected pc.  Also, Lenovo has an Administrative Lock on the BIOS Password.  Resetting CMOS did not work (took out CMOS battery for 30 minutes, changed Cmos reset jumpers with power completely turned off - neither worked).  Thus cannot change from secure boot to Legacy Boot.  When customer comes back from vacation we will go to store where he purchased the PC and hopefully in conjunction with Lenovo obtain the password. Also, made a mistake and re-initialized the HHD as GPT.  I think the HHD is GPT and not MBR, but the re-initialization now prevents the computer from booting at all.
 
Trying to get Administrative Bios password from manufacture so can change to Legacy Boot so can boot in Hiren's so I can use MiniTool Partition Wizzard to hopefully recover the HHD Partition so I will be able to boot normally, and also with Net User command in Command Prompt create an Administrative ID which will enable me to completely get into the computer.

through which we can Access/Delete/Copy/Replace Important Data without Cracking/Resetting the Login Password in Windows 7 OS
and for this we not need any 3rd party Software/ CD/ DVD/ Pen drive/ CMD/ Script/ or any other means of hacking Devices/tool.

only through Windows 7 OS we can Access anybodies Computer Around the world, and user will never get to know that his/her computer has accessed by someone else.
This is purely Microsoft's Negligence towards user's Around the world.

U can assume how much serious is this Issue, if anybody can steal confidential Important data of Company/ Govt data/ or any other Sensitive Personal data of anyone who are using windows 7 OS.

I have Talked through telephone to MS India regarding this Issue and they told me that there is no loophole in their OS and can't be accessed by anyone without having Login Password or User need to Reset login Password with tool/software available.

also i have mailed to MS Technical support Team and also asked about this issue on Windows worldwide official support forum, but not get any meaning full response from them.

I am asking this message to here, coz i want to Spread this issue around the world, so every user can secure their Data and also MS can rectify this issue by releasing an OS Update.
