Default System BIOS


Does anyone know how to get past a System BIOS password? the only way i can think of is taking your computer apart and disconnecting the power switch and connecting it back

Only way I know is to pull the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios. You need to have your motherboard manual to know which one to swap around.

I figured that was what you were saying, but like I say I don't know of another way. You might watch to see what crazed-lunatic and cheifredbull have to say on the subject though. I suspect they both know more than they tell [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

BTW I am on chat now.

Find the CMOS battery and pull it out. Wait a few seconds... voila. BIOS reset. No password.
There are other non-hardware ways to get around BIOS password, but that is, in my opinion, hacking, which I am not at liberty to divulge information about on this forum.

Good Luck

This thread is starting to get close to the edge of the rules...

TommyHM111: just go on the web and do a google search (or use any other search engine).
