BIOS passwords are a security measure that can render a laptop useless if you don’t recall the correct password. As they’re stored only on the laptop, there’s no official online recovery available – like your Google account, for example. Forgotten BIOS passwords often mean expensive trouble, whether you get your manufacturer to provide a solution or purchase a BIOS Master Password from an EBay seller.
Luckily, most manufacturers have a Machine ID code that, after decrypting with the correct algorithm, will reveal the BIOS master password. The BIOS Master Password Generator here @ 1024kb.co.nz helps those who’ve lost or forgotten their BIOS passwords to recover them – for free.
