    This method takes advantage of the backdoors built by manufacturers. The default passwords for specific vendors have been available for some time.

    Here's How:

    1. Switch on your PC and enter a wrong password three or more times.

    2. A message will display an alert that says your system is disabled or the password failed.

    3. The message will also include a number. Note the number as it will help you generate the BIOS backdoor password.

    4. Open the BIOS Master Password Generator page on another computer or smartphone.



    5. Enter the number you saw on the BIOS screen. Click the Get password button to see a list of computer models and passwords. Try the password that is for a machine closest to yours.

    6. Reboot your machine to the BIOS password screen and enter the password.

    You can always call up customer support and give them the number that came up on the alert screen.

    If keyboard connected via USB port change it see it will help.

    If you can try different Keyboard.

    The Debug command can be executed from booted Windows Command Prompt or from FreeDOS .

    1. Install FreeDOS on a USB flash drive using Rufus or UNetbootin.

    2. Download the debug.exe tool and save it to the root of your USB flash drive.

    3. Boot up the computer with your USB flash drive and type the following commands: (take note that the second and third commands start with the letter O and not the number zero.)

    Code:
    debug
    
    o 70 2E
    
    o 71 FF
    
    quit
    4. Restart your computer by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del keys together and you should encounter an error message like “CMOS checksum error” which is normal.

    You can now access the CMOS setup without entering a password.

    Debug command can damage your computer and make it non bootable i will not be held responsible for any damage cause to your computer.

    I think upgrading BIOS firmware will also reset BIOS password.

    I tried using Rufus and UNetbootin. When i try to install it on the usb drive nothing happens.
    I can't upgrade the bios firmware. I can not get passed the bios password screen.
    Could something be wrong with the keyboard drivers causing this problem?

    For a BIOS password removal it usually works to open the computer to remove the silver quarter-size battery from the motherboard with it unplugged from the AC power. It usually is a CR-2032. Wait a few minutes and put the battery back then plug in the computer and try again. Some user-adjustable settings may have to be reset.

    I removed the battery and unplugged the computer over night. Removing the battery did not help. I also reset the cmos pins with the same results? Unable to enter the password. When I try to type it in nothing comes up.
