    Step 1 Boot the “Hirens.BootCD”

    Open the boot menu by pressing F9, F10, F11, F12 whatever your motherboard support’s and Select the DVD-RW to Boot Up the CD.


    Step 2 Select the Dos Programs.

    After booting the cd you will see the Hirens boot cd menu. Select the Dos Program.


    Step 3Select the “Next…” on the 9th No.


    Select Next and find the “BIOS/CMOS tools” and open it.

    Step 4Select the Bios ©râcker 5.0 tool in the BIOS/CMOS tools.


    After selecting the “Bios ©râcker 5.0 (cmospwd)” your screen got fluctuate and you see some software gets auto start and ask you some of questions like language or something, you’ll just have to click enter and that’s it. After some of questions you will see, the program asks you to “Press enter key to continue”. Just press the enter key and your bios password got reset. Restart your computer and check the password is removes or not. If the password is still remains try ours another solution listed below.


    Resting by bios jumper and solder bread –
    You can also reset the bios by CMOS jumper. Shorting the jumper till 20 sec can reset your bios password. Mostly the bios jumper Is located nearest by the ram slot or the CMOS battery. The CMOS jumper is looks like this:


    Step 1 – Open Your computer case.

    Step 2 – Find the jumper.

    Step 3 – Move the metal cover from 1-2 to 2-3 for 10 sec and after that move back the metal cover to 1-2 again.


    Step 4 – Assemble back your computer case and test it.

    After shorting the password has been cleared. If it has, screw back the cover and load the default setting in the bios to make bios on its original position. If the password is still remains try ours another solution listed below.

    Resting by C-MOS battery –
    All the cmos and bios setting is saved in the bios chip which was attached on the motherboard. The main work of cmos battery is giving a continuous power supply to the bios chip to save all the settings. If you unplug or remove the battery for above 5 sec, the bios setting will be reset.

    Step 1 – Unplug all the power supply which is connected to your computer. Means power cable.

    Step 2 – Open your computer case.

    Step 3 – Disconnect the CMOS battery.

    After finding the battery, just disconnect it or remove the battery for 5 sec.


    Step 4 – Short the CMOS battery connector by the use of metal wire because in some of motherboard manufacturers backup the power to the Bios Chipset by using of some capacitor that’s why we short them to remove the remains power supply.


    Step 5 – Reinstall the CMOS battery and assemble back your computer case and that’s it. Power up your computer and the bios got reset.

    Note – Sometimes these solutions doesn’t work. In that case you’ll have to re-install your bios software or replacing the bios chip.
