Re: G50 - Forgotten BIOS password / Obtaining error code

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


Unfortunately there is no master password or magic back door which can be used to circumvent a forgotten BIOS password on a laptop. This protection scheme is due to the ease in which laptops are stolen every day. Your only solution is to try and remember the password you used.


Likewise removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard will NOT clear forgotten passwords on a laptop system. If you still can't remember the password then the alternative is to replace the motherboard.  Sorry.


What error code are you trying to obtain?
