Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

BIOS passwords are used to add some extra security to computers. You
can either set a password to prevent access to BIOS settings or to
prevent PC from booting.

But sometimes this extra security might become a pain when you forget
the BIOS password or someone changes your system BIOS password
intentionally.

But there is no need to worry. There are many known ways to remove the password:

  • By removing CMOS battery
  • By using motherboard jumper
  • By using MS DOS command
  • By using software
  • By using Backdoor BIOS password

    Why do you want to remove it? It's another good level of security to protect your data. On the other hand we see this request a lot and because we cannot verify you are the rightful owner of the computer most will not tell you how to get around this security. IF you set it up then you should already know how to disable it.

    There are several ways to remove it, but it is better to contact an expert to do the same, if it is under warranty.

    Easiest way is just remove the battery on the motherboard for 30 seconds. Put it back in, and you are set.
