I need to know whether there is ANY way of bypassing or resetting a bios password. When I switch the machine on, a little logo appears which looks like a padlock with the number 1 next to it. If this is the password how do I know what it is.
There are many ways to remove bios password one way is to remove the CMOS battery but u have to wait for a few hours some require a day meaning 24 hours. You see the cmos battery allow information to be store on the bios with the help of the cmos battery. If u ever work on a mother board when the cmos battery is dead and u put in some setting for that moment it will store but once u shutdown and put it on back the setting is reset to factory default. Some battery u have to solider off and resolider back for that to work. So u can try it to see if it work for u
