Re: lenovo G580 bios password

I would suggest trying to default the BIOS by removing the main battery and AC adapter. Once removed - press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and AC adapter then boot using the Lenovo button (smaller, next to power button with ^ on it) to boot the notebook. Enter BIOS and set defaults then save and exit.

This is the best shot at restoring your BIOS settings. If it does not work you should contact Lenovo Support via phone and speak with them about warranty service and repair options.

Good luck.

Good day.

 

The only way to remove a BIOS Supervisor password is to know it and enter it into the appropriate fields in the BIOS. Please see page 24 of your hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g480_g485_g580_g585_g780_hmm_v1.0_english.pd...

 

If you wish to contact Service, please see the phone info below.

Re: lenovo G580 bios password

Hello sarbin

 Tnx for comment. I didnt set any password and quiet sure nobody else did 

So i hope it should be some default password but in this case who is holding the password? Is it the seller or lenovo it self?

Re: lenovo G580 bios password

There are no default passwords.

If you did not set the password, I would recommend that you contact the seller to inquire if they might have done so.

 

Regards.

There is no BIOS master password. If you don't know the password, or can't get it from a prior owner, the system board replacement for a fee is the only option.
