Hello,is there a way i could reset my password aside from soldering parts of it inside? Is there a password to open it? I just got this laptop from our company for disposal.

  1. Have your company change the password to one you give them. Business latops usually dont even have a way to reset the bios, like with a jumper or pulling the cmos battery.

    You can read the password off the eeprom without desoldering it or modifying the motherboard in any way, and you can buy relatively 'off the shelf' hardware if you want for $30 or work your own solution.
