BIOS Password issue on U41-70(Prompts for a password which was never set by the User!)

Hello There everyone.

          I have a  problem with my Lenovo U41-70 Core i7 model. Recently I tried to install Linux onto my machine but when I tries to enter the BIOS option to get to the boot priority by pressing: Fn Key + F2 Key. It prompted me for a password! I never really set a password on this machine since I bought it other than the Windows Login Password and that password did'nt work!. Any help would be great!

Unfortunately clearing a forgotten or unknown BIOS password on a laptop isn't as easy as it is on a desktop.  This is due to how easy a laptop can be stolen.  There are NO master passwords or magic back doors which can be used to get around the password you are encountering.  If a family member or friend has used your laptop I would recommend that you ask around to see if one of them may have entered one.  I would also check with the retailer or seller if the laptop was purchased locally as they may have entered one.  Otherwise the only solution is to replace the motherboard. 

 

Please be advised that additional discussion related to trying to circumvent BIOS passwords are prohibited by Forum Rules.  Again, this restriction is due to the ease in which they can be stolen.  Sorry!
