    I gave this a go, the boot up password has now gone but it still has a bios password.

    I read that if i fill the eeprom with all ff's it will detect a corrupt bios and reset it.

    Will give this a go later, and post findings.

    If some 1 in the meantime knows how the password is encoded, please let me know.

    In xe3 laptop - when you go to bios it will ask you for password - then type key F12 - then you will have 5 digit hash code - give it to me and I will give you master password .

    This for first person for free .

    Hi, I have an old omnibook 900 that is locked out. Hashcode is 15035.

    I have opened it up and looked for a eeprom AT24c164 where the password is supposed to be stored but I cant see it anywhere.

    Does anyone know how to work out the pass from the hash code?

    Thanks, Midguard

    Hi all. This is my first post and I would like to acknowledge my appreciation of all the invaluable help contained in these forums.

    I hope remzibi or any other contributor will help me to boot up my Omnibook XE3 laptop. Following the instructions I've seen posted here, I've obtained the hashcode which is 06573.

    Kind regards
