How to put a key in our computer (key in BIOS).

This method is not the safest method available for put a password on our computerBut it is more than enough for normal users (little siblings, mothers or even girlfriends), not to go around touching where they are not wanted.

The mode we are going to use, protect access to the computer as well as to the setup of the BIOS The process is quite simple. The process is quite simple, although there are many different types of BIOS different (in this case it is called BIOS AWARD), the process is very similar in all of them, so here we go:

Notice: You are entering a very sensitive area of the computer, if you don't want to fuck anything up, stick to the manual.

1º.- First we switch on the computer and press the key. "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" "Delete" (this is normally the case, but if this is not the case or if you are not sure, here is a list of all the possible accesses depending on the computer). The main screen of the BIOS.

2º.- Now to set the password, we go to USER PASSWORD. You will see a box where you can enter the password of your choice.

BIOS user password

BIOS enter password

3º.- Once set, we will be asked to confirm the password by entering it again (it will appear exactly the same as in the above box).

4º.- Now we have the key configured, the next step is to tell the system what we want to protect, for that, we go to BIOS FEATURES SETUP.

BIOS features

5º.- Here inside, look for the option Security OptionIf we want to protect only the access to the setup of the BIOSwe will put "Setupand if we want to protect both (access to the setup and access to the system), we will put "System".

BIOS screen

6º.- After this, we return to the main screen of the BIOS and click on SAVE & EXIT SETUPThe system will ask us if we want to save the changes, we press the key. "Y" to accept.

BIOS save

7º.- When we finish, we restart the PC for the verification, "et voilá", it asks us for the password to be able to enter both the system and the setup of the BIOS.

    *** Disable BIOS user password prompt at startup on Toshiba Satellite *** laptop

    If a few seconds after turning on the computer (in my case a Toshiba Satellite laptop) the BIOS asks you to enter the user password (which you set and activated at the time) and you want to disable it, you have to do this:

    1. Press the F2 key (or DEL or Del. maybe) to access the BIOS setup (enter the supervisor or superuser password that you also activated).

    2. Go to the Security section: or (in this case it will have "Supervisor Password Is: Set" and "User Password Is: Set")

    3. You will not be able, a priori, to remove the user password ("Set User Password" not reachable with the cursor), but the solution is easy: you remove the supervisor password and, automatically, the user password is removed. To do this, go to "Set Supervisor Password" and press Enter. Then you have . In "Enter Current Password" you enter the current password and press Enter three times, leaving "Enter New Password" and "Confirm New Password" blank. Then you should enter the superuser password again, so that important BIOS configuration options are not changed unintentionally.

    4. Press F10 to save your changes before exiting and you have . When the cursor is on "Yes" press Enter and that's it.


  4. I understand that there is a universal password for the BIOS I think it was the amrca of lamborghini cars and if I remember correctly they tested it with my computer and it worked, could you tell me if it is true?
