How to Bypass or Remove aBIOS Password

NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a passworded Hard Drive. 3 wrongguesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lostforever. How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing theCMOS Battery:
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOSbattery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when itis turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small batteryinside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, thecomputer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOSpassword. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experiencedworking with laptop hardware. Anyway, open up thecomputer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallicCMOS battery. Some computers have this part standing upright. Once you have located it,observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to removea CMOS battery. Make sure to power down thecomputer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they arepowered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this towork. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it backin. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power inits capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allowsenough time for them to discharge. Plug everything back in,power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well thereshould be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messagesduring boot up now, you will need to go to "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS andsave the changes to fix them.

Laptop SONY VAIO VPCEB32FM: how to remove BIOS password


The BIOS password is probably the Power On Password.
This method may not work. Remove the BIOS battery for 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS is depleted. Insert the BIOS battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.
If this does nor work then the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work and there is probable no backdoor passwords.
The Sony support maybe able to offer a solution, check the support WEB site..

How do i bypass the primary drive lock password


On the mainboard near the coin battery you'll find a jumper. take it off and reboot. Replace it and reboot again. that works sometimes. If not you can go to the motherboards' BIOS like Phoenix and they have backdoors built in. Read on:
Backdoor passwords Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords

Good luck...hope this helps...
