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.)

@san1984? 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.

A:How to Reset the BIOS password

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they may be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

I entered the hard drive password wrong. And now i can't have access to the windows. Also the bios setup is asking for a "SYSTEM PASSWORD",which i never applied. Please help. 

A:How to reset the bios password

Good day and welcome to the community.Sorry you're having trouble.
The only way to remove a BIOS password is to know it and use it where prompted. There is no "reset". If you don't know the supervisor/admin password, or can't get it from someone who might've set it, the only option is to replace the system board. Also, if you don't know the correct hard drive password, then the drive is unusable. There are no backdoors.Regards.

There is no backdoor password.  Removing CMOS battery does not help and will make it worse.  The only choices are to remember the password or to replace the motherboard.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, the hard drive crashed on it and I bought a new one and was going to install a new operating system on it. When I inserted the Windows 7 disk I find out it won't boot from the cd drive. I go into bios to change the setting and there's a system admin password that I didn't know about or don't remember that's keeping me from changing any bios settings. I've researched and tried everything, is there anything I can do to bypass this password so I can boot from the cd drive?
