Can't get pass the blackscreen password - PC Desktops


Answers :

That is the BIOS password





Using the\015\012 Motherboard "Clear CMOS" Jumper or Dipswitch settings
\015\012 Many motherboards feature a set of\015\012 jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of\015\012 the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of\015\012 these jumpers /\015\012 dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard\015\012 manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or\015\012 computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is\015\012 unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the\015\012 edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor.\015\012 Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR\015\012 CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop\015\012 computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard\015\012 or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop. \015\012 Please remember to unplug your PC\015\012 and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and\015\012 touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper\015\012 switches, turn the computer on and check if the password\015\012 has been cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or\015\012 dipswitches to its original position.
\015\012 \015\012\015\012 Removing the\015\012 CMOS Battery
\015\012 The CMOS settings on most systems\015\012 are buffered by a small battery that is attached to the\015\012 motherboard. (It looks like a small watch battery). If you\015\012 unplug the PC and remove the battery for 10-15 minutes, the\015\012 CMOS may reset itself and the password\015\012 should be blank. (Along with any other machine specific\015\012 settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually\015\012 reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.) Some manufacturers backup the power to the CMOS\015\012 chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails,\015\012 leave the battery out (with the system unplugged) for at least\015\012 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the\015\012 motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the\015\012 battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other\015\012 components, so please don't attempt this if you are inexperienced.\015\012 Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the\015\012 motherboard for a period of time. \015\012 Note: Removing the battery\015\012 to reset the CMOS will not work for all PC's, and almost all of\015\012 the newer laptops store their BIOS passwords in a manner which\015\012 does not require continuous power, so removing the CMOS battery\015\012 may not work at all. IBM Thinkpad laptops lock the\015\012 hard drive as well as the BIOS when the supervisor password is\015\012 set. If you reset the\015\012 BIOS password, but cannot reset the hard drive password, you may\015\012 not be able to access the drive and it will remain locked, even\015\012 if you place it in a new laptop. IBM Thinkpads have special\015\012 jumper switches on the motherboard, and these should be used to\015\012 reset the system
