Preferred Solution: Want to reset BIOS password

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: Want to reset BIOS password

When prompted for password try 68583219 This should clear any passwords.If not enter BIOS and reset/change it. Use the code as old password and leave new password blank. Save & Exit

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.

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?

If your PC is Elitebook or Probook (business class device) you should note that most business class notebooks (including yours Elitebook and Probook) have better security.

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

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.

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and remove the battery. Remove the rtc cell from the system board - see Page 57 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Hold down the power button for 60 seconds. Leave the machine like this for a few hours, then re-insert the rtc cell, plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the main battery out for now ) and start the notebook. Unfortunately, if this procedure doesn't clear the password, it probably indicates that 'Stringent Security' has also been enabled in the bios - if that's the case, there is no way of removing/resetting the password. Regards, DP-K
