Sony :: Vaio SZhow To Remove Known BIOS Password

May 14, 2010

I have a Sony SZ90 notebook, and would like to run a BIOS update on it. I have the latest BIOS (that I found with help from chaps on this forum). However it won't recognise the notebook when I run it.

I have wondered whether this is because I added a BIOS password to it ages ago. I know the password.

I would like to remove the password, but cannot for the life of me find how to do this in the BIOS.

Does any one know how to remove the BIOS password?

Dell Inspiron 6000 :: Bios Password - Reset Or Remove It

Mar 22, 2013

I have an Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop that has a Bios Password Set on it... and the password is not correct that we thought was the one for the laptop....  The password authentication system wont boot the laptop up until we enter the correct password... I have tried all the combinations that we thought the password is or was, but have not had any luck --- that being said the laptop is registered to me/ owned by me --- Can I provide the computer system tag -- that is shown on the screen and getting a reset password to overcome this obstacle.... The service tag is in my profile information and the computer system tag on the laptop bios password sign in screen is B*B*H*1-595B... I intentionally put the three * in the info, so I wouldn't compromise the service tag for my laptop for the world to see and use..

Lenovo ThinkPad W510 W Series :: Can't Remove HDD Password

Jun 18, 2010

I recently set an HDD password on my W510. Now I would like to disable it again.
Unfortunatly the option to set the password is now inactive in the BIOS: It says "Hard Disk1 Password   [User]", but I cannot select the option in order to change it. This appears to be a bug. I once had a T61, where changing the password was no problem.
I would really like to get rid of the password again.

Sony :: How To Backup Vaio Z Original Bios While Flashing New Bios

Oct 16, 2009

Updated: Found a better way to backup Bios only, Please see the end of this message

Let say your Vaio Z is using Bios R4040M3 and you move to Bios R4041M3 to use the official VT support. Later on, you want to move back to R4040M3 to use the Advance Menu hack. Unfortunately, you cannot move back as Sony never publish the R4040M3 Bios update. This is my current situation.

I decided to investigate a way to back up the current Bios. Using a program called Universal extractor, I managed to extracted the files in the original Bios update. The bios update uses a program called Insydeflash to flash the Bios. The Insydeflash uses a file called platform.ini to control its setting.

In the platform.ini file, there is a section called [FDFile]. The section [FDFile] has a parameter called BackupName. If we put in a file name here, the Insydeflash should save your current Bios into that file. Unfortunately, I cannot make it work with the Sony supplied Insydeflash. (version 3.38).

I managed to get the newer version of Insydeflash (version 3.72). The newer version has a new ini section called [BackupROM], as the following:
