    I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo XA 2528, and according to Speccy I have this BIOS:

    I tried many BIOS/CMOS cleaners, password viewers etc.(even DOS ones) and none of them helped.Only one showed something which i couldn't understand at all:

    I tried clearing the CMOS with CMOS De-Animator, but even afterwards the password was still there.So if anyone has even a tip, please post it.Thanks.

    Yeah, tried those already.Though AWARD was merged with Phoenix in 1996, so i may try one of the Award BIOS passwords.

    Can you re-flash the BIOS? That should clear the pw out...

    To be honest with you, I'm starting to think that the PW is on the EEPROM inside the laptop...

    Have you tried this?

    "Boot Dos to prompt;

    At the C:\> prompt, type:

    DEBUG

    and hit Enter. You'll see a dash (-) at the DEBUG prompt. Now type:

    o 70 2e

    which will show as -o 70 2e at the DEBUG prompt. Hit Enter. Then type:

    o 71 ff

    and hit Enter. Finally type:

    Q

    and hit Enter one last time, to quit DEBUG, back to the C:\> prompt.

    Now reboot!"

    These commands have saved me more than a few times.
    There are more, that I do not know by heart. I found these quickly today at annoyances.org

    If you have not gotten it fixed later, when I get home this eve., I'll check my files for the other commands and post 'em up.

    ?????
    I thought you were talking about a locked/passworded BIOS?
    The BIOS is in the EEPROM and if it's password protected- that's where the password is.

    Are you talking about a locked BIOS that requires a password to get in?

    Or are you talking about a OS account login password?

    I'm saying that whenever i try to boot up/get in the BIOS, a little window pops up with the prompt for the BIOS password.
