forgot Bios password
Posted on 2010-09-21
Hi, very big issue. I'm a computer hardware technician and I have a Lenovo G530 laptop that i'm trying to fix for a good friend. Someone in the house some how found their way into the bios and activated the bios passwod and noone can remember it. I have tried everything i could think of to bypass it but as you well know the bios password hits the screen no matter what. The Lenovo is out of warranty so not much help from IBM at the moment. My last hope was to clear the cmos but can not find a cmos battery or reset jumper any where on the board i opened everything. This guy needs help he's a teacher and yes everything is on the hard drive yes i can back up his files and put them on a new laptop but the Lenovo is a bit over 1yr so a new unit is out of the question at this time. Are there any ideas anyone at all can toss at me.
