BIOS password hacking
Regardless of how long you've been working with computers, you've likely had the need to reset a BIOS password. You know, those configuration and power on passwords that often keep us from managing sometimes even using our computers to get our work done. I used to love working with this kind of stuff in college and when I first started my career. Although I'm still intrigued, I just don't have the time to spend days on end experimenting to find the perfect solution to lost passwords. I'm sure you don't either. That's why I've created a sort of all-in-one reference guide to hacking BIOS passwords.
I won't bore you with tips on soldering chips and programming in assembly language, but I will provide you with some steps and good resources to turn to so you don't have to pull half your hair out or give up altogether. If you really need to get into or reconfigure a desktop or laptop system and one of those pesky passwords is getting in your way, here's how you can get around it.
