Bios Password

sonnyandlinda
I cant get into my computer. There is a Black screen with a blue box in middle that says enter password. How can I get past it? Someone told me that I needed a new motherboard.

We at TechRepublic can not help with this matter.
Why?.
Because we do not know it the computer is yours or not. If we give you help with this matter then anyone can get their hands on any computer and have access to it. So you are going to look at this post and think "what a plonker". But i can go a long with that, i have had worse. Sorry about that.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks.

if you are able to verify it is not a stolen system, they will assist you in removing the bio password, although there might be a fee for their services. (because yes, they are providing you a service).

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

So within the constraints of the above you need to take the unit to an Authorized Service Agent and have then clear the M'Board Password. Depending on who makes this unit it may require a replacement M'Board to cure this issue as some have a separate Security Chip installed on the M'Board which can cause problems.
