Hello all,

I have a Fujitsu laptop. About 2 years ago, suddenly the system asked for the BIOS password on startup. So now, everytime I startup the system asks for BIOS password. I didn't know this password, and decided to search online on how to get it fixed. I tried removing the CMOS battery and trying. However this did not work. I have misplaced my CMOS battery somewhere.

How can reset this password? Is there a way?

Many Thanks,
Jesvin

:welcome: Encon

BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we a G2G do not assist in what amounts to hacking past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards.

While such requests are often legitimate, and come from users who experience exactly the kind of problem that you post, we have no way of determining legitimate vs. not legitimate, therefore we do not respond to such requests.

One suggestion that I can make is to take a proof of ownership and the computer to a local tech/store and have them sort it out, good luck with it.
