Preferred Solution: need 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.)

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 have an old Octek Rhino 12 SMC669 based computer that I am trying to install Windows ME upon my clients request.
Unfortunatley this is proving very hard at the moment, and I appreciate your help on this in advance.

When I turn on this machine it says invalid system disk (as there is currently nothing on the HDD). OK.. insert a boot disk.
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.

Hi, There was BIOS password set and don't have now.How do I reset the password?Model: Compaq 2150p Grately appreciate help from the community. Thank youRegardsSenthilkumar  

A:BIOS password reset

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

I created an a BIOS account on my HP ProBook 450 G2 and after restarting I have been unable to login using the same password I created it with. When powered on it will ask "Enter Password" and I will enter the password, then it will ask "Enter Password Again" and I'll do so, then again it asks "Enter Password Again" and I enter. After this it takes me to a page that says "On-Screen Keyboard" and I enter my password using the onscreen keyboard. Then it displays the Authentication Failed page saying System Locked. Press the power button to restart the system. How can I solve this problem? Your help will be highly appreciated.

Please!!! Need help ASAP! OK, so quick backstory. About a year ago my Dell Inspiron 15 was stolen from someone I knew that is now is jail. I got it back a couple of months after it was stolen. I went to boot it up and sign in but all that popped up was a black screen with a blue rectangle in the middle saying "Enter Current Password". I didn't know the password as I never set one. I contacted relatives  of his that I knew and they gave me the 3 passwords he usually uses.  None of them worked. Idk if he tried to wipe the hard-drive or what.  I assume he was planning on selling it. After that I kinda put it aside for awhile because I didn't  really need a laptop at the time. But 10 months later and now I REALLY need it because I'm starting school soon. I don't care if I lose everything on it, just need it to work again.  Based on my research I think my BIOS needs to be reset.  Can a Dell expert please help me? It would REALLY be appreciated.
