Preferred Solution: Bios password reset

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.)

A: Bios password reset

@Redburn For that HEX code you will need to contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.html When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. REO

Trying to reset the password on and old C400, it is asking for primary or administrator password. I have no idea what to put in there, and can't see if  the computer will function at all!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks! 

A:Need the reset for password on Latitude C400, bios revision A06, original password.?

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

When I insert a boot disk I get a Disk I/O Error.. Please replace disk and press any key.
This boot disk works fine on any of my other machines.
I tried to go into the BIOS to check the settings but it is password protected. My client has cant remember what the password is. I have tried a number of default passwords with no luck.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to resetting the password on this motherboard (I cant find the jumper settings anywhere) or have any idea what might be causing the other errors. Thanks.

A:Need bios password reset

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. The only other option would be to Contact HP regarding this. Regards, DP-K

A:Reset BIOS password g50-30

Hi markus1991, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Similar to this discussion, as indicated in the hardware manual (page24):
"  neither Lenovo nor Lenovo authorized service technicians to provide any services to reset" 
 
BIOS password is security information that only the original user that set it should be able to reset and is saved on the motherboard chip so draining power would not help reset it and would end up replacing the systemboard instead if you would not be able to recall it.
 
A note on our community Guidelines: "No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc, or to subvert safety measures. Nor shall any posts provide descriptions to the location of, nor direct links to content related to these topics."
 
Take your time to recall the password you have initially use as it may be the only way to change BIOS especially if F12 boot manager failed to launch Win 7 installation.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards
