The intermittent bios password problems

I have a HP Pavilion DV9000 Notebook/entertainment (GL885UA #ABL) and intermittently rejects the startup password. There is a USB keyboard and a mouse attached separately. The BIOS is displayed as HP F.3D, 22/11/2007. Processor is AMD Turion 64 X 2.

It is immaterial that the password is typed on the computer keyboard, or USB keyboard, it gets rejected most of the time and goes to the 'locked system' then I have to turn power off, then try again. Usually, it accepts the password on the second or third try.

It doesn't show other symptoms of low battery of the BIOS, such that waste the time and date and forget about the hard drive or other hardware.

Thanks for any help


What you describe is a map of the system to his last breath.

I have a HP mini 1000, which did the same thing for me, two days after an attempted installed Kali Linux. My mini is also about six or seven years. He asks a BIOS admin password. He never had a password for BIOS installed! It is now a brick.

I recommend that you start looking for a laptop replacement.

  • The ubiquitous Bios password bug

    TOSHIBA: Stop making several models of defective laptop computer that randomly set a bios password on you. Of course, they offer to pay for a shop to do it, but we don't have time for that. Reviews of this question going back to nearly a decade. That being said, as a result of the business.

    I don't want to pull the cmos battery, my other computer has no floppy drive to a disk with a hex editor key, so that came out, and I don't want to short-circuit jumpers.

    WARNING: do not buy Toshiba products, if you do they'll think it's ok to make products with a bug in killing of long time work (buy if you work for a huge company that can afford to put your feet a week)

    You are really funny to type cuban_cigar. And you are telling stories. But I want some of your stories were real and not made up from thin air.

    You posted links to the son how to get rid of the BIOS password ok that nice, but it would be nice if you had read EACH case before posting something like this. In most cases, the user has lost the password!

    I've got three different models of Toshiba laptops and set to update the BIOS on all laptops.
    Never ever had a BIOS password problem!

    I'm agree with Akuma and possibly that a single mobile model may be affected by unknown BIOS password problem.
    I noticed an assignment abut M70, but it seems that the ASP took free and new update of the BIOS should help.

    I also read in other forums that something like this happens also on mobile phones from OTHER manufacturers.
    So in your case, I would be very careful with some things that are not known to you or not really clearly for you because you confuse others here in the forum.

  • Satellite L40-A993 - what is the Toshiba BIOS password?

    Yesterday, I left my laptop in mode 'sleep' after work. When I started today morning, he prayed for the password. I never set a password for BIOS and never changed no settings. Currently, its not booting.

    Just after ignition, screen opens with "Enter password".
    I tried to check online, but I got no idea. Can anyone suggest how to fix it?

    Hello Abreu

    AFAIK the system settings like BIOS password cannot be addressed only and configuration of the password must be entered twice (password confirmation).
    Has anyone access your machine?

    I'm afraid that someone put the password on your computer without your knowledge.

  • How can I reset the Setup/BIOS password?

    Yesterday, I bought a used HP Pavilion a1640n Media Center Edition for my granddaughter. I wanted to go through the installation and make sure that everything has been updated and looked good but when I went into the Setup program it asked me password.  The kid, I bought could not remember ever put a.  It has been upgraded to Windows 7 - it works beautifully I might add - and somewhere along the way someone put a password during the installation.

    How can I go on the erasure of the values as the BIOS password?

    Thanks in advance,

    To clear the Infromation in BIOS follow the steps below

    1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord.
    2. Locate the jumper marked CLEAR_PWD. (Normal) position, the rider is default on pins 2 and 3.

    1. Move the jumper on the CLEAR_PWD jumper to pins 1-2 to erase the password.

    1. Plug the power cord and turn on the computer.
    2. Hold down the F1 key during the boot process and enter the BIOS to change or clear the password.
    3. After changing or clear BIOS passwords, consider the jumper to reset the pins 2 and 3.

  • Satellite L850D - 12 p - the rider on the own BIOS password

    Hi all.

    I was given a laptop by a parent and I would use it but for the moment can not.

    To be honest, the reason that this has been given to me was that there is a password that they have forgotten and even mentioned that the laptop is mine, but I have to have the password removed the bios boot somehow.

    I've seen many mentions of the B500 rider in Google but I can not find these on this laptop. No, unless they are hidden pretty well.

    There are at least under the removable cover only, memory, CMOS battery and HARD drive.

    I had the battery, HDD, RAM and portable removed and left alone for a week. This resulted in nothing.

    Is - this laptop has a clear CMOS jumper at all? Anyone know what is her name?

    Laptop model is by Satellite L850D - 12 p.

    Thank you very much.


    Hi Albert

    Please don't get me wrong, but we cannot start such things on the public forum of Toshiba.
    BIOS password is very important security feature. As far as I know Toshiba uses several techniques for BIOS password removal. One that is used on your computer does not for me so I can't help you with this.

    Point is that many users protect machines clean and backed up data with this password. When we are discussing here on this subject and maybe offer detailed how do to remove the BIOS password each laptop stolen could be unlocked.

    BIOS password removal just contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

    It is entered incorrectly 3 times. No 'CNUxxxx' code is seen, only "system locked, please restart" or something similar.

    Unfortunately, business machines such as Probooks or EliteBook have more strict security consumption patterns - they do not produce "stop codes", the password cannot be derived from the serial number and the code is stored in a nonvolatile memory to remove the RTC cell does not reset the password in this case.

    If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a file custom SMC.bin that you can use to reset the password at startup.

  • Remove the rom BIOS password

    HI - you can help me how to access my hp mini computer without typing the password in the rom Bios. Every time I turn it on, I type the password e9lo7gq79g. There is no way I can remove it or the display to which I would like to have the password. Thank you


    You can remove the need for a power on password as follows.

    Shut down the laptop.  Now on TAP the ESC key as soon as you press the power button to access the start menu, then select f10 to open the Bios menu.

    Use the arrows to select the Security tab and press ENTER.  Use the arrow keys again to highlight the power on password and press ENTER.  Enter the current password ( e9lo7gq79g ) and then for the new password, just leave this field blank and click on enter - do the same for the confirmation field.  Press f10, select this option to save the new settings and press to enter.

  • HP EliteBook 8560p: BIOS password problem


    I started to work as an administrator, but a worker in front of me made the passwords to get into BIOS on three notebooks of EliteBook 8560p. I can start Windows normally, but if something goes wrong, I will not be able to enter the BIOS and move the boot priority. I really need to remove the BIOS passwords on these books and any help will be appreciated.

    Enterprise-class notebooks have rather stringent security.

    Try the method described in the following third-party forum.

    There is also a HiRens BootCD on usbwhich has BIOS password utilities.

  • BIOS password problem


    I had a password on my BIOS, and I know because I was the one who set it. Later, as I was going to sell I need to remove this password, so after I removed it, it always appears with a password screen to enter the bios (I can get the operating system very well).

    I tried the old password, the B500 Toshiba specific technique; I v allowed c-mouse and a number of crackers from past bios of such things than UBCD. He won t budge and I m from options, help please.

    > the specific technique of Toshiba B500
    What is c? I never heard of this technique.

    >... (I can get the operating system very well).
    In any case in the history I n t understand I thing: can you enter the BIOS or boot your operating system using your password or not? Your laptop is blocked or what?

    If you can start the to OS user password pen tool and delete it.
