Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I can't bypass or clear out a old bios code I've already tried to put in manufactures code and even went as far as to take out the c. backup battery. bought it from older guy out of small town in waterville and he couldn't remember his own code. so what do I do????

Answers :

Search for a jumper on the motherboard, it will something as JPWD or PWD ... something which can resemble short form of password. It will be a 3 pin jumper, and a cap will be placed on first 2 pins, remove the cap and put that on the next two pin.
