I recently purchased a laptop from an auction. It has a bios password on it that I can't seem to clear. I tried removing the battery on the board which caused more problems.

The laptop is a Panisonic cf-35 P1 266mhz.

I need to get this password out of it so I can access my network and use my usb ports.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Moondog <_<

Most desktop BIOS have backdoor passwords. You could try one and might get lucky.

Thanks D/L'd it to save for my others this one seemed to clear out the password right after I posted this morn. Go figure. <_<

on another note do you know if I can change the bios base to new one? It seems that the bios on this laptop doesn't let me use the usb ports. My gps needs these usb ports. Anyway just wondering....

Thanks
