How do I reset my BIOS password on newer ASUS laptops?

I was playing around with the BIOS settings and somehow I fat fingered the password not once, but twice.. and now I'm locked out of the computer entirely. I was trying to figure out what the difference was between the "User" password, and the "Administrator" password - and the difference is that "User" won't allow the system to boot at all without that password.

I've tried pulling the main power from the tiny little motherboard, and this appears to make no difference with these newer laptops which don't have specific bios batteries to remove. Any suggestions?

So I followed his directions, but it didn't work for me. After a bit of searching, apparently the bios rescue password is tied to whatever the bios thinks the date is.. I can't get my Bios to go back any further than 2012/01/01 though (pulling the power on the motherboard for a few minutes achieved this). The video had a bios of 2002/01/02, which is way older than what I have. I'll have to keep looking.

I did some more research on you laptop ,netbook with no cmos battery it has to use battery power and if disconnected will stay viable with static charge that remains in the board .So to drain the board disconnect the battery and hold down the power button for a few minutes then try it and see if it worked if it didn't,disconnect the battery again and leave the battery disconnected for several days till all residual power is drawn off when you think you have all the residual power drained away plug in and try again . Hope this works better

I have the same problem except that it keeps doing the same thing over and over asking for a password. Mine is an Asus Transformer tablet with Windows 10 . I accidentally set the Bios Admin password and not the User one. And now I can't even boot my computer up. When I do alt+r, my rescue password date is whatever date I am trying to access the computer. Two days ago it was 12/21/16, today it is 2016/12/23. HELP. Is there any way to recover without wiping my computer or resetting it? I don't have any of my MS Office keys anymore.

Okay, so my friend is a pretty well educated, experienced IT. He completely wiped the bios and reset the password, then went and successfully installed windows eight for a couple days, then when he went to get my laptop booted up to start personalizing it, & the %#*@ bios password had managed to remotely reset itself to the previous password magically?. As if he didn't change literally everything in the computer harddrive with different firmware.

Had any of you seen this ?.

With all Windows 8 laptop or computers that have problems with Bios Security Password. What you can do enter your log in password or your normal log in password into the Bios Security. Press Enter and it will direct you to the Bios windows. On top search for Security go down to all the password type the same password into it and then enter when a window pops up to re-enter new password leave it blank. Just press Enter and it will just direct you to your normal log in.

You will find links to a couple of BIOS (or more correctly UEFI) password recovery sites here:

https://therestartproject.org/wiki/UEFI_...

Manufacturers seem to have leaned on Google not to index such sites but you can still find them through the Russian search engine Yandex.ru

Hay?

I have been working on computers for many years now:

To clear your Bios and C moss open the back of the computer:

There is a small battery in the slot where the hard drive is red and black wires in it:

Unplug that plug wait 15 minutes then plug it back in this will clear all C moss and Bios:

Then you can open bios and C moss and re program to what ever you want to:
