Changing Supervisor Bios Password

I set the Supervisor Password and Power-on Password for my T61, they are different, but after that I cannot enter bios with using the Supervisor Password. I am sure that I remember exactly the Supervisor Password because I type it correctly when using the BiosSettingsWindows.exe tool to capture the bios settings.

Now I would like to upgrade bios but I cannot disable the Supervisor Password.

Please advise me how to do that. I am very appreciated.

 

Phong.

Re: Changing Supervisor Bios Password

Hi phong,

 

Welcome to the board!

 

Btw, did you enter the Power-on Password prior to supervisor password prompt? Is the password 7 characters?

Re: Changing Supervisor Bios Password

Please try the following; press F1 as soon as you see the bios splash screen, before you are required to enter the power on password. When a password is required enter the supervisor password.

Re: Changing Supervisor Bios Password

Dear Cleo and Andy,

 

Thank you very much for your suggestion. I did as you said but the x character appear when I enter the supervisor password but that password is accepted when I use with the BiosSettingsWindows.exe tool. What can I do more?

 

Best regards,

Phong.

Re: Changing Supervisor Bios Password

Of course u saw x character appeared because the password is encrypted! Refer to biosSettingsWindows.exe manuals?
