    Unhappy Reset the BIOS System Password on a Hi-Grade Notino 7200

    I own a Hi-Grade Notino 7200 Notebook, given to me second hand. When I first turned it on, I received a message asking me for a system password - which neither myself or the previous owner know.

    Is there a way to reset the password on this laptop? I've searched everywhere for a user manual, sent countless emails, all to to no avail.

    The help is much appreciated.

    Your last resort is to take out the cmos from the laptop, let it sit for a few hours and how that works. I don't even know where the cmos might be in that laptop. Guess you could search for it. Hmm this link might be useful. http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.shtml
    I didn't even know about these. I'm going to try them.

    If I leave it, it starts making a REALLY annoying beeping sound, which gets more repetetive the longer you leave it.

    And I couldn't find any information about how to reset the BIOS PW on a Hi-Grade machine from that link either.

    Guess you aren't willing to open it up then...that is the only way. CMOS is part of the hardware in the laptop.

    I've tried that as well. There's a screw in it that won't budge.

    Looks like everything is going wrong for you? How can the original owner forget a password?

    He lost the power supply for it, and once the battery died, he put it in a cupboard, and let time forget the password.

    I forked out £40 for a replacement PSU, so one can understand why I want it working!

    Well guess now your only chance is to get that screw out. Maybe you can drill it out?

    I could try that. Well, I'll ask my father - I might cause a lot of damage!

    It's OK - the backdoor password was 'maximum' - the manufacturer told me.

    I'm surprised they actually told you what it was.
