Assuming you are locked out of the OS as well and can not simply use a third party tool or change your date to use a recovery password, then use this method. It is actually easier than hassling with all that IMO. '''== Using a Backdoor Password ==''' Here is a list of American Megatrends Inc. backdoors. A password in BIOS which always works irrespective of what password you have set in BIOS. Its a master password which is used for testing and troubleshooting purposes. A.M.I. AAAMMMIII AMI?SW AMI_SW AMI BIOS CONDO HEWITT RAND LKWPETER MI Oder PASSWORD This will allow you to bypass the password. For most systems you can get the list for your use by inputting the incorrect password 3 times. You should see a message that reads "System Disabled" followed by a number. Go to BIOS-PW.org and input that number to get the password list for all manufacturers that match that checksum you entered. These will always work as long as the password you put in matches the checksum the system gave you, because that will be the same checksum generated by your password. [image|1015975] Also, don’t worry about the system disabled message because it’s just a scare tactic. All you have to do is turn off the computer and turn it back on and you’ll be able to enter the BIOS password again without any issue. This method works for almost any computer so instead of burying it here I am going to check to see if there is a guide write up for it, and if not create one for easier access.
