I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

Hello all,

I hope I can get some help / guidance from some one with more experience with the M400 if possible?!

I reinstalled the OS and setup the biometric security for me, which has worked flawlessly! However I stupidly also set up the boot up security (BIOS Password). So when the tablet gets turned on I can scan my finger and get in without any issues, however I now want to turn the boot up security off. So I booted it in to the OS and went to disable it....however it asks for my password....which I have forgot as I have been a typical end user and have been only using my bloody finger!

Does anyone know if I can disable the BIOS security while in the OS using the biomentric security rather than entering a password? I have tried just changing the admin password within the win OS but that doesn't work....any ideas?

Any help with be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

I gave my daughter a Dell XPS 15(L502X) Laptop, running Win 7, about 10 months ago. Some how the laptop on boot up will respond to the first password asked for. The next password asked for is HDD password. She does not know the password nor how it was set.

I can get to the setup screen, F2,[which reads Phoenix SecureCore T iano Setup] but cannot change boot options. There is a + sign by Hard Drive and a + sign by Network. Everything on the boot screen can be highlighted but no item will respond to the Sub-Menu key, Change Values key, or Setup Defaults.

I decided to post here before calling Dell. I have used Dell computers for many years but do not like dealing with their tech support.

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

I updated the bios after I had notified from Toshiba about the Bios v3.50. The process was done by the Toshiba Utility software, and after the reboot there is "Password =" on a blank screen and it not recognise my BIOS password, writing "Not certified".

What can I do now?

A:Satellite Z30-A-12R BIOS password not recognised after BIOS upgrade

Hi

Before trying to update the BIOS, all passwords should be removed!
BIOS password can be removed by authorized service provider available in your country.

But the unknown HDD password cannot be removed anymore.
In such case the HDD isn?t accessible and cannot be used.

Sorry mate but in my opinion you have only one chance to get the BIOS password removed; you need the ASP assistance.

Is there A way to “lock out” a secondary hard drive and only allow access to it via a password? Something that will still work if the HD is taken out of the computer and transferred to another. Something that basically will only allow someone to access it if they reformat it. I know there are programs to encrypt a HD but for a program that will encrypt 320 GB.

I have researched my problem with the "Drive Lock Password" for my computer until I was blue in the face. I turn on my computer, it begins the startup, and then stops and asks for a "Drive Lock Password. I have gone to the HP sight, and it quotes:

The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password can not be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.​
My question is, WHEN DID THEY EVER TELL ME MY DRIVE LOCK PASSWORD!! I have never set one, never recieved one, and I am, quite frankly, frustrated t the fact that it just decided one day that I needed to enter one. I had it for two years; and within those two years have accumulated pictures, projects, etc., that I don't have access to now. I don't understand how I am supposed to come up with a password that I never had access to in the first place, even though I bought it from Circuit City July of 2004. Please help!

hey every1 i got 2 roomies who i no longer want using my comp for a variety of reasons so im basically looking for a good way to lock them out...lookin for something more advanced than just pw'in windows...im runnin xp pro corp sp2...any suggestions would be wonderful...
 

A:password/lock computer

What would be more advanced then just password protecting your computer. You can also password protect the bios as well so that they would have to enter a boot up password there as well. But if you give anyone physical access to your computer they can pretty much own it within 5 minutes with many of the freely available security tools out there.

I would buy a removeable hard drive bay. Shutdown the computer, pull the hard drive out and bring it with you.

Just flashed my bios to the newest update so that it can recognize my new processor. however, i had to clear the CMOS before the computer was able to boot again. upon booting, the bios seems updated, and xp runs fine...for the first minute

after that everything locks up. i have no warning or anything, and i'm guessing this has to do with the new bios flash

I can run my computer in safe mode, though i don't know what to do to fix this problem

I was given a computer to work on and it turns out that her now ex-husband locked it, both the hard drive and the Bios. It is a Dell laptop. She was concerned about what was on the hard drive but I am almost 100% sure there's no way to unlock it???
As for the Bios, my desktop can be bypassed by either taking out the battery or resetting the CMOS jumper. On her laptop I took the battery out but it was still locked. She was hoping I could buy a different hard drive and the computer still be usable.

Any suggestions?

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

When we walk away from the computer for awhile and return to do something, the screen
locks up and asks for a password which I recorded when we first set up the computer.
I don't want to have to type in a password each time someone wants to use the computer
since this is our family, home use computer. How do I turn off this option?

Hey,

Currently, I don't have a password set for my user account (I don't want to have to enter it on each start-up and I don't really have a problem with people using my computer).

Occasionally I'll be working on something and when I leave my computer I don't want to risk anyone accidently messing it up. It would be pretty handy if I could lock my user account with a password, then just unlock it and pick up from where I left off. From my understanding, the only way I can do this is if I create a password for my entire account.

Is there any way I can set a password for just the lock screen?

A:Setting password for just my lock screen?

Hello Clinton, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The only way would be to set a password for your user account.

A workaround would be to create a password for your account, and set Windows to log on to your user account automatically at startup. This way you will not have to enter your password at startup, but you will if you lock the computer.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hiya Guys.

I`ve been given a laptop to try and fix but I`ve come across something that I`ve never seen before and I`m not sure what to do about it. Because of the problem, the only thing I know about the machine is that it`s a Compaq Presario R3000 with 256 RAM and don`t actually know what system it`s using at the moment but as I use XP most of the time, I thought I`d post it in here.

After pressing the power button, I get the usual `F 10 - Setup & ESC - Boot order` but whatever I do after that, whether it`s pressing either of the shown options or F8, I immediately get an onscreen request to `Enter Password` and after three attempts, it show a `System Disabled` message with a code of 10361. Hard shut down is the only option then (ON button for 4 secs) which returns me to the `Enter Password` offer.

Following a quick Google search, it looks like it`s something called a BIOS lock-out but suggestions on how to fix it are sketchy to say the least and as it`s well past it`s warranty period, I know HP aren`t going to be interested. Just another point to mention at this stage, it`s not set to boot from CD or USB and as I can`t change it, I can`t go down that route.

Thinking logically, I wondered if taking the battery off and/or flipping JP1 for a few minutes might solve it so begrudgingly, I took the laptop apart (I hate working on laptops) but I`m ashamed to say, I couldn`t see anything like a normal flat CMOS anywhere or the elusive jumper. Have I missed something obvious... Read more

Jenny, you've been here long enough to know that we can't assist with passwords. That is indeed a bios password, and I'd look rather closely at where the laptop came from. Those are very specific to put on, and quite frankly, impossible to put on accidentally.

This is probably a long shot but try it anyway:
Go to Start/All apps/Windows Ease of Access folder/On-Screen Keyboard
With the OSK up, click on Options (1), 'Turn on numeric keypad' (2), engage NumLock (3), click OK (4)
Ensure NumLock stays engaged; don't know if it will have any bearing but it's worth a shot.

I deployed seven external USB CD burners to some people in our company. On every one of the computers, if the burner is powered on when the computer is restarted, the computer freezes at the BIOS screen. If I power down the burner and then power-cycle the computer, it comes up fine.

Six of the computers are Dell Optiplex GX260 desktop machines and the seventh is a Dell Latitude D600 laptop. All are running Win XP SP2.

The burners are from CyberDrive Technology (apparently the cheapest drives our purchasing dept. could find).

Any ideas on how I can resolve this? Is there something in the BIOS that can be adjusted to bypass the problem?
