: I have had to access the bios when I have been locked
: out by a password restriction myself. I got some help
: from an article I read which suggested a few words they
: were no help, but removing the battery did the trick.
: Remember you will lose all the bios info if you do that
: but on newer systems the autodetect will find the harddrive
: you have. I also had the disconect the power before it
: would forget everything and let me in.
: The article was in PC World Feb 99- the words were :
: AMI,AWARD SW,password and cmos. Try case variations.
: I hope you don't have to resort to this but if you do I
: hope this helps.

: : Hello.

: : Well, we experienced on work that a colleague
: : set up a bios and an power on password on his
: : Compaq, but we need to get access to the computer.
: : ( The colleague is on vacation and unreachable. )
: : So I wonder if there is any master password there
: : to crack both passwords ?

: : M. Winfield

: Just a comment to all. If you don't know it, and
: you need it. Try the obvious. "Compaq", "Deskpro",
: "DeskPro", "DesqPro", "Desqpro", etc. As well as
: info you know about the PC's user/owner. Most
: people use ordinary passwords. Complicated or
: encrypted types are to big and difficult to try
: to remember and type all of the time. Also try
: AMIBIOS, BIOSCMOS, etc. and others like that.
: Good luck...
