    Interesting question -sad, effectual answer.

    The whole basis for setting a bios password is to stop other users gaining access. Clearly if you forget the password you've got a problem. This problem is usually only encountered by the ne'er-do'wells that steal laptop computers. Assuming you haven't stolen it you might try the following:

    1. The bios password comes in two parts - one for entry to the operating system, the second for entry to the bios (where you set the first password)

    2. Try going into the bios, assuming you haven't forgotten that password too - if you haven't set one it doesn't exist - pressing F2 at startup will get you in.

    3. If neither of the above steps are possible you'll have to save up for an airline ticket to Taiwan, or the cost of shipping the laptop to Taiwan.

    Removing the cmos battery will have no effect

    If the standard of your typing also applied to your creating the password, you may never find it, ever again.

    I have successfully removed bios password using the debug command on desktops and don't know if it will work on laptops but if you reply back with your status that would be great.

    Try this in a command prompt:
    DEBUG
    - o 70 2E
    - o 71 FF
    - q

    Good luck oh and BTW was it a big hastle to disconnect your phone? LOL jk

    I forgot the password of my BIOS and the password removed itself after I resetted the BIOS... Obviously I had to reconfigure it afterwards...

    That is if i remember correctly...

    If the bios stores passwords in a flashmemory chip then cutting power by removing the cmos battery won't clear it. I'd like to think using the BIOS reset jumper to **** it away would work but that also seems like a pretty big security whole; worth a try though, check your manual to find out if/how it's done.

    How can I get to the command prompts to type your debug commands when the CMOS password wont let me get that far?

    I still have to read through the thread and see what answers where given but posting your phone number for an international audience caught me first.

    . . . and while the poor bloke goes through the turmoil of arranging call-diverting and call-interception and new phone numbers and whatever else involved by his fauxpas he can spend the rest of his life trying to figure out where all those "leftover" screws are supposed to fit into his dis-assembled laptop, when he went looking for the BIOS reset jumper!
