    Re: Read BIOS Password.

    You cant. That information is not normally exposed, let alone to a user. It is a **** of a lot easier just to reset the BIOS...

    Switch off computer
    Put the jumper on the header
    Switch the computer on for a couple of seconds then off again
    Remove the jumper
    Switch computer on again

    ??????

    Re: Read BIOS Password.


    Why it's not possible. I've seen a same program in a CD. But right now I
    don't have that CD. There should be some way. I think we can achieve this
    using C. Is it. Help Me.

    Re: Read BIOS Password.

    It is possibly something very low level (Assembler) that would run under DOS (Win2K won't allow direct hardware access), and is
    likely to be very BIOS specific.

    Re: Read BIOS Password.

    Just pull your BIOS battery, if your computer is new enough, all the
    settings will configure itself and there will be no problem. Otherwise if
    the comp is older, then you just have to adjust the settings a little bit,
    most of the stuff is simple to work out, your hardrive information should be
    written on the top of the harddrive.
