Customer Question

An ASUS F-553MA laptop has a BIOS password ***** has been forgotten. The password ***** ***** before even the ASUS logo appears. I have discovered that pressing Alt + r at this prompt, a "system date" appears and it is asking for a "recovery password" and that is as far as I can get. Any ideas?
JA: Good tech support is often the difference between a quick fix and many sleepless nights. The Computer Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Computer Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Computer Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

I have tried many random passwords. At the end of 3 tries, the computer simply shows the "Invalid Password" and has to be rebooted . If I hit Alt+r the screen changes to:
"Enter Rescue Password
2014/07/26"
The date value increments every day.

Hello. My name is***** will be providing an answer to your question today

Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. If it ask for the date use this date 2009/01/01and this password ***** caps) : 1BLDABLA waiting for your feedback

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I have seen this information on the internet and that is not the date shown. It doesn't ask for the date. As stated in my original post, Alt + r causes a prompt, "Enter Recovery Password" and the date in question as distinct from "Enter Password". I assume the recovery password ***** ***** based on this date. The currently displayed date is 2014/07/26 and it changes every 24 hours. I believe this password ***** be generated by ASUS but I can't use their service as they require the original purchase receipt which I have lost.
Expert:  caraleneK replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your feedback please if you can reset you password ***** on this site https://bios-pw.org/ waiting your feedback

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. There is no check sum generated. Please refer to my second post where I said that the last display prior to having to reboot is simply "Incorrect Password". Therefore, this process cannot work. By the way, I have researched all the "solutions" you have offered to date myself prior to contacting you.
Expert:  caraleneK replied 1 year ago.

Thanks so you also know you only have two options left to reset your machine one will be to do a Reset By C-MOS Battery or Reset By Software but I will opt out so that my fellow experts can assist you further..Take care ..

Hello there, and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com

.

I see you are having a heck of a time with this PC and the BIOS password.

What is your CPU type?

INtel uses the DMI, for the Sbridge integration, which encompasses the BIOS. And UMI is AMD's version.

So, depending on which CPU type you have, will determine which Integration you have, and we can get down to resetting the BIOS. YES?!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is an Intel Pentium.
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that, but there are LOTS of different Pentium processors.

.

Can you be more specific? And also the Speed (frequency, typically expressed in Gigahertz GHz)
For Example:

Pentium SandyBridge G6xx at 2.8GHz

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is a Quad Core Pentium, N3530 @ 2.16 ~ 2.58 GHz and I believe it is one of Intel's Ivy Bridge processors.
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, i will have to OPT-OUT, and open this back up to other experts.

Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

Did you set a bios password ***** did it just show up? If it just showed up is this laptop 3-5 years old?

Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

The the above is true, this is probably a cmos battery, which I can help with, if not, I will opt out.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The password ***** set - laptop is just over one year old. See above post, there is no CMOS battery.
Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

Gotcha - but there IS a cmos battery, there has to be one, yours is probably soldiered on the motherboard. There is no such thing, of any computer, server or laptop with out a cmos battery.

Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

What you would be looking for is a small round silver disk with blue rubber around it, to most people it looks like a capacitor. like this http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/cmos-battery-soldered-560x420.jpg or sometimes like this http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12c/removable-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg The other old school ones look like a watch battery, but I can a sure you there is a cmos battery.

Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

I'll opt out, let me know if you believe there is indeed a cmos battery so I can try and help. Good luck.
