Preferred Solution: Lenovo V110-151SK - Lost 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.)

Unfortunately there is no master password or magic "back door" which can be used to reset a forgotten or unknown BIOS password. Laptops are designed that way to prevent thefts. If you do not know the BIOS password then your only alternative is to replace the motherboard. Sorry.

I perviously had a Lenovo and purchased a new one because the mouse "stuck" and would not click on taskbars or the items at the bottom of the screen.  Changing mice made this continue to happen.  However, CTL+ALT+DEL would loosen up the clicking function and allow me to use the mouse properly. The new, above-captioned computer is doing the same thing.   Can I change settings to stop this?

I've been using this laptop since I got it, a few months ago.Today, as usual I started using it and the screen goes randomly black.I panicked, pressed a few keys (ctrl-alt-delete, ctrl-alt-f4, ctrl-alt-w) nothing happened.So I turned it off on the button and on again. After a bit long atualization I entered my password and my desktop turned black again.I found out I can still change the brightness and lock it. So Iocked it, used the Microsoft Hello and that one activated the McAfee LiveSafe on Firefox. If I close my browser I might not be able to open it again. I can still "minimized" firefox (When I try to minimize I'm only diminishg the window and the window automatically travels to the southwest corned of my screen as a form of a green rectangle with the simbols of dimished, its opposite and close. Again, the only things I can do now are changing my brightness "minimize" my firefox and lock my desktop.What do I do??? Edit: I can do ctrl-alt-del as well.

Hello Lenovo Community,  I have a Lenovo U41-70 80JV. It was a birthday gift from my friend. I have been using this laptop for 2 years already. For some reason, I had a BIOS password in my computer. I was lucky that I don't have to type the BIOS Password while powering on the computer. I need to change my boot options but I cannot get into BIOS. Here is what I have tried so far:- Use cmospwd-5.0 -> Command Prompt -> ioperm.exe -i -> StartService function call failed- Use Master Password -> Failed- Use bios-pw.org -> BIOS doesn't show error code- Kill CMOS Battery -> Waited 30 minutes -> Failed- Pull out jumpers -> Do not see any jumpers- Use KillCMOS3.0 -> Killed -> Password didn't resetSomeone told me to use dip switches but I cannot locate it because I don't have an exact picture of itAny help, thanks! David Anderson

Hi. I have a Lenovo B50-30 mode 80ES. It was set to require a password on startup starting with a capital "A". While experiencing charging problems, amongst other things, I updated the BIOS to 9CCN35WW, downloaded from the Lenovo support site. Since updating, the laptop no longer asks for a password on startup (No big deal, I applied a windows password), however, when pressing F2 to access the BIOS (which I need to do, the F keys are the wrong way round), it asks for a password, When pressing to strike a capital A, the laptop beeps and doesnt enter it. It wont accept capital letters anymore, therefore it wont accept the pre BIOS update password. I have referred the laptop to Lenovo service, including returning the laptop, and they have been nothing short of useless. They said they couldnt repair it under warranty because of "Marks, cracks, inappropriate treatment" and it would cost 255 for a replacement system board. I really couldnt see why I should pay for an issue created by their support system, so I asked them to return it unrepaired. Upon arrival, the laptop was immaculate, so I dont know what damage they were referring to. Is it possible to downgrade the BIOS to a pre update revision, to change the password and then reset it to one the new BIOS approves of? Thankyou in advance.

A:Lenovo H 50-55 Bios password suddenly appears when trying to enter bios. I don't know it.

my guess is that your cmos battery died and it wants you to set day/time.  There is no backdoor password.  The choices are remember the PW or replace the motherboard.

There should be a jumper on the motherboard to reset the BIOS. Check your motherboard documentation for the location of the jumper and set the pin to the reset position.

A:Lost Bios password

If this is the bios password, then you will need help if you cannot remove the battery.
"The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC.
If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty."
