Bypassing BIOS password protection

Securing your own computer is very important and most people rely on BIOS passwords to protect their computer. But this is a huge mistake since anyone with a little bit of knowledge is able to bypass it easily.

Bypassing BIOS password protected computers

Most BIOS chips have built-in master passwords or hidden routes which enable you to bypass the password protection in case you lost or forgot your password.

Master passwords
There are several web sites that list all the BIOS master passwords, here is one of them. You can also just google “BIOS master password list” and you will find tons of lists.

It is not guaranteed that these master passwords work because of the different BIOS chips but there is a pretty good chance that they will.

Bypassing it the other way
You can also bypass it if you are already running Windows( I acutally don’t recommend doing this since it can be harmful to your BIOS, only use it if you know what you are doing). Open the command prompt cmd.exe . There enter:
Debug [Enter]
o 70 17 [Enter]
o 71 17 [Enter]
q [Enter]

This will restart the computer.
