Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.

Clearing System Passwords (startup only) not Windows

by jb2994 In reply to Bios resetting

Open the PC and remove the onboard button battery for CMOS memory for ten seconds and replace battery... Bios Passworde are stored in CMOS and maintained by the battery power when PC is off or unplugged.

Not to be a spoil-sport but......

by robo_dev In reply to Clearing System Passwords ...

Two things:

1) TR forum rules prohibit us from helping others to bypass security controls, period.

2) Most newer laptops do not rely on the CMOS battery for device security, and many do not even have a CMOS battery, they use a supercapacitor.

On never devices the password is encrypted in a security chip that has flash memory, so mucking about with that battery or capacitor will not un-brick the device. If it could, it would not be a very secure method.
