You can protect your computer from some unwanted things or uses through the BIO password. You can set total two types of password in BIOS. One type of password is that your computer will ask you for that password when you will start your computer. If you fail to give the correct password, then you can not enter into the computer. The second type of password is that you can easily enter into the computer without any password, but when you will try to enter into the BIOS of that computer then you will have to press the correct password.
Sometimes, it can be happened that you have forget your own BIOS password and you can not log into the computer. Again you have purchased computer from another person and when you want to enter into the BIOS settings of that computer then you see that there is a password. In the case of such problems, you will need to reset the BIOS password. In this post, I will say you total three processes to solve this problem.
- You can solve this problem with unplug the battery from your computer. If you see the motherboard, then you will get a battery attached with it. These types of batteries are used in the wrist watch. Carefully unplug the battery from the motherboard. Remember that your computer must have to be off that time. After 10 to 15 minutes, plug the battery into the motherboard again and start your computer. Your password should be removed already. But in some motherboards, capacitors are used to keep the power as backup. So for those types of motherboards, you will have to keep the battery in unplugged situation for about 1 day (24 hours). Then password will be removed. In some motherboards, batteries are kept shouldered. So if you have no previous experience to do this task, then bring an experienced person to perform this task. Again, there are some modern motherboards, specially, laptop motherboards, where you can not do this unplugging the battery. In those cases, you will have to follow the steps given below.
- You can do this task also using the DIP switch or jumper. In some motherboards, there are systems to reset the password through the DIP switch of jumper. You will get the settings besides DIP switch or jumper. If the settings is not given there, then read the manual of the motherboard or know about that through the website of the motherboard manufacturer companies.
- You can also try through the secret passwords. Many BIOS manufacturers give some secret passwords into their BIOS. Using these passwords, you can overlook the current password. In the following, I am trying to give you some of these passwords.
For Award BIOS:
BIOSTAR, KDD, ALLy, aLLy, CONCAT, ALFAROME, ZAAADA, CONDO, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, Condo, PINT, 01322222, djonet, 589721, HLT, J262, J256, j332, j322, 589589, AWARD SW, AWKWARD, TTPTHA, SYXZ, syxz, ZJAAADC etc.
For AMI BIOS:
AMI, PASSWORD, BIOS, AMI?SW, AMI_SW, LKWPETER, HEWITT RAND, CONDO etc.
For Phoenix BIOS:
Phoenix, CMOS, BIOS, PHOENIX etc.
In the case of most Toshiba Laptop and in some desktop computers, you can bypass the BIOS password through pressing the left shift of the keyboard during the boot of the computer.
