!BIOS is a freeware utility which is designed to be a whole BIOS and security suite. It has the ability to decrypt the passwords used in some of the most common BIOS makes such as Award, Phoenix, American Megatrends, IMB etc..
It also has the ability to brute force the password (known as “blasters”). However, this method is dangerous and can result in some unexpected and unwanted results.
Note: Because of this applications password cracking abilities, some antivirus software may report it as a virus/trojan. This is a false positive.
To start using !BIOS, reboot your computer and take note of the BIOS type and version you are running. For example, If your motherboard uses Award BIOS you should look for the text “Award Medallion BIOS 6.0″ or something similar.
Download !BIOS from the link I have sent you via PM and save it to your desktop. Then, open a DOS command windows by going to Start > Run and type: cmd
Once you see a black screen in front of you, type: cd desktop
You should now see something like: C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Desktop>
Now type the name of the file you just downloaded, if you haven’t changed the name just type in: bios320.exe
Use the down arrow and choose “Crackers” and then press the right arrow. Using the up and down arrows, select the BIOS that the motherboard is using and press Enter.
You should now see a menu asking what you want to crack, in most cases its the Supervisor or System Passwords you want to crack, so press the 1 key on your keyboard. It will then show you another menu asking how you want it to be cracked. Option 1 is pretty good so try that first by pressing the 1 key on your keyboard. You should now have your BIOS password.
Reboot the computer, enter the BIOS and try it out.
On many computers (especially old ones), computer manufacturers build in backdoor passwords for their own technicians to use so they can access the BIOS when the hardware is being serviced. Here are some of the ones that have been reported. You may need to try quite a few passwords before you find one that works
These passwords are CaSe SeNsItIve.
AMI BIOS Backdoor Passwords:
Award BIOS Backdoor Passwords:
Russian Award BIOS Passwords:
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords:
Other Manufcaturers Backdoor Passwords: (manufacturer name – password)
•VOBIS and IBM – merlin
•Dell – Dell
•Biostar – Biostar
•Compaq – Compaq
•Enox – xo11nE
•Epox – central
•Freetech – Posterie
•IWill – iwill
•Jetway – spooml
•Packard Bell – bell9
•QDI – QDI
•Siemens – SKY_FOX
•SOYO – SY_MB
•TMC – BIGO
•Toshiba – Toshiba
If all of this fails then there is one 2 more things you couold try, open the RAM cover, check if there is a small button or a jumper, if there is then push the button or fuse the jumper, else, you should open the laptop and check for the jumper or button inside. Hope this helps.
