    Recover Forgotten BIOS Password

    Some times it may be necessary to change some settings in the system BIOS, for example boot preferences. But what if you forgotten your password?

    Here is a simple solution to find, decode and delete the superior passwords stored in BIOS whatever the brand is.

    PC CMOS Cleaner (now it is free) is a bootable CD that runs on x86 and x86_64 computers and is useful for users to get their lost BIOS password back, or clean passwords from an old computer bought from others.

    It supports most BIOS, such as: AWARD, AMI, Compaq, Phoenix, Samsung, IBM, Compaq, DTK, Thinkpad, Sony, Toshiba and so on.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

    1. How does BIOS Password Cleaner work?


    BIOS Password Cleaner tries to decode the password stored in BIOS and displays it for you. If it fails, it will set the BIOS to default state to remove the password in another way.

    2. How do I install BIOS Password Cleaner 2008 if I do not have administrative privileges on my PC?


    BIOS Password Cleaner 2008 is a "offline" password reset tool which means no Windows or Linux Systems are needed. It's bootable CD running independently.

    3. I don't have any Windows XP, 2000 or NT setup CD. How do I use BIOS Password Cleaner 2008?


    You do not need any windows installtion CD. What you need is to download BIOS Password Cleaner 2008 ISO file at the end of purchase and burn the ISO to CD.Booting from this CD and get the password back.
    I will try to make time to give it a go on an old machine at work tomorrow.

    All very well and good until you realise that it's not set to boot from CD in the BIOS.

    This CD does the same thing as the Debug trick to reset the BIOS doesn't it?
