Bios password in Windows Vista


It is easy to set up the BIOS password, rather than remove it.

When the computer gets started press F1. You have to do this before Vista gets loaded. Set the BIOS password and activate. Type of the OS will not affect, to set the BIOS password.

If you want to remove the BIOS password, you have to remove CMOS battery. CMOS battery provides the power to hold lots of OS settings. Once you remove this battery, it will forget those settings. Follow the below steps:

  • Remove all the wires from System Unit and unplug USB cables. Take out the CMOS battery and keep waited 20–30 minutes. This will discharge power stored in the capacitors.
  • After that, you can re-fix the battery.
  • Even you can remove BIOS password using manufacturer’ backward password.

Two Ways to Do That,

  • Is by using the Motherboard Jumper:

Usually CMOS battery is bonded into the main board, though there is a spring like part that you must push to lift the CMOS batteries, to get it out of the circular dock.

Probably your motherboard contains a jumper that you can use to clear CMOS settings together with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper will depend on your motherboard's brand name. Read your manual to see it.

It should look like this:


What you should to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. Now just wait for a few seconds and then remove again the jumper and put the center pin to left pin.

Note: Be sure to turn off your computer before doing this.

  • By Using Software:

BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is for me is the most effective way.

To use this, just boot your PC to DOS and run the program and you’re done!
