I my B570 laptop a door stopper now?

2012-10-11, 16:13 PM

Hi, hopefully somebody will be able to help me.

 

I bought a used laptop B570 and the Bios is password protected. The last user forgot his password. Right now the computer does not boot as it does not recognize the Wi-Fi card and halts there. Also, it won't boot with the battery inserted. If I try to insert the battery while it is on, the laptop will beep once and turn off. I think it has to do with the BIOS not recognizing the battery anymore. So I tried to reinstall the BIOS, but  am getting an error that the battery must be inserted.

 

I guess it is really 2 questions:

1) How to reinstall the BIOS without the battery 

2) how to remove/clear the password ( I read somewhere that it was impossible, and only a MB replacement would do the trick )

 

Other notes:

I removed the Wi-Fi card, and was able to boot with the CDROM to a simulated Windows XP (using Hiren's Tools)

The last person removed the hard drive for security reason

Hi Xpender666, welcome to the forum,

 

you'll need to get the original owner to remember the password; the forum rules stricktly prohibit discussion on this subject.

 

"No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc, or to subvert safety measures. Nor shall any posts provide descriptions to the location of, nor direct links to content related to these topics."

 

By all means start a new thread on the other problems mentioned, without discussion of passwords, as I have to lock this one.

 

Thanks for understanding.

Andy
