Generic BIOS password listings
If a BIOS or CMOS password is forgotten, in some cases it may be possible to use a generic BIOS password to bypass the unknown password. Using a generic BIOS password, you can change the password to a different password. Below lists generic passwords for each major BIOS manufacturer, but we cannot guarantee any of these passwords work on your computer.
The brand of your computer is not the BIOS manufacturer. You need to determine what BIOS your computer's motherboard has by checking with the manufacturer of your computer. You may also be able to find the BIOS chip on the motherboard and see if it lists the manufacturer on it.
With today's computers, it is easier to reset the BIOS or CMOS password using a jumper, instead of trying the passwords below. For more information, see: How to clear an unknown BIOS or CMOS password.
