BIOS password lock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Someone broke into a friend of mines car and set a BIOS password locked her Laptop. (didn't steal it though, stole $150) Dicks. Anywho, most things I've read say remove the CMOS battery and reset it. I'm unsure if that would be possible on a laptop, I would assume it's attached to the board?

What could I do? She wants to take it to Best Buy and let the Noob Squad figure it out, I don't wish that upon anyone though. So any help would be fantastic.

A program that modifies CMOS from within Windows? Wow, color me interested!

As for the OP, it should be just like removing a CMOS battery from a desktop, except with more screws.tongue.gif I found a Youtube video that shows replacing a CMOS battery on a laptop. Yours will probably be different, but at least this gives you a general idea.

Don't forget to unplug the laptop from the charger, and remove the battery first!

I so had this happen about 6 months ago and I was not happy. It was a Toshiba satellite with the cmos battery soldered on. I found a guy with broken english that told me to take out the laptop battery find the labeled welds for the cmos battery and touch metal-metal to short. Viola it worked.
