Ok long story short I bought this laptop off a friend who forgot the user bios password but knew the admin. So like a dumb*** I go and remove the only password we knew ( admin) thinking it would also remove the user password. Well it didnt and I thought, hey maybe I need to save and exit bios for it to apply my password removal. Well I was wrong, it then asked me for a user password every time I turn it on, not letting me do anything. ... so I thought I just ruined it and now have this huge expensive paperweight. After a couple days of research ive seen so many people with this problem and even bricked bioses, ive read what they has to do with bus pirates and whatnot and was like dang, I really dont want to do this. Ok enough blab lol here is how I removed my bios password. I disassembled my laptop, took out the cmos battery, put it back together and turned it on, NOTE: I did not have a cmos in tge computer when I turned it on. Sure enough it went to the bios and it had no passwords installed. At this point I was so hysterical and happy. So I turnwd it off, disassembled it again reinserted the battery and BOOM! It didnt remember ****. I hope this works for everyone, this is my experience.

Great! That is awesome! :) Removing the CMOS battery is not an easy job, so I am glad that it worked for you!

I thought there was a cmos reset hole in the bottom?

A picture of where this is located would be nice! :) I haven't found the reset hole on my G53SX...thinking there isn't one.

I know there was a button, tried it didnt work. I would send it in to asus but I have no extra cash after I bought the laptop. Besides this laptop has been around (meaning opened and tampered with including drilling two holes under each fan) so im sure asus would charge me extra for whatever reason.

Good to know that works for you. I'll be doing the same on my G74. I heard rumors popping out the cmos battery wouldn't work. Plus I need to find a way to order a bottom case for my G74 so that I can fix what the tech's broke when they "fixed" my touchpad issue.

wish I see this post sooner, you can go to American Megatrends, Inc Web and go to amibios support http://www.ami.com/Support/amibiossupport/ download the full bios flash program http://www.ami.com/Support/downloadagreement.cfm?DLFile=support/downloads/amiflash.zip&InpDrvID=90 and once you download the program make sure you use the Aptio Version as G73 use Aptio bios, use the AFUDOS and get latest Bios and use /N after the bios like

AFUDOS xxx.ROM /N <- Erase Bios Setup Password.

more detail read the AMI_Aptio_AFU_User_Guide comes with the package.

Cool thank you for posting this, do you have to boot it up without the cmos battery in or can you just take it out for a while? I would rather not disassemble my G74 twice... does anyone else have verification that this works?

So your telling me by removing the CMOS battery you got it to clear out the Admin Bios password??? I bought a G73JH on Ebay with bios locked and guy couldn't remember the password. I had been in contact with ASUS and they gave me every password they had. The only way to fix it was to send my laptop to ASUS to have it re flashed (Wasnt that important to me). But i had heard that G73 has some kind of memory that stores the password in case of battery failure or something. Did this in fact truly work?!!

Confirming you have a G73JH with i7 ATI HD5850.

It often doesn't, as the BIOS password is stored in non-volatile memory for security reasons. If pulling the CMOS battery would remove the BIOS passwords, for corporations, that can be major security hole.

Hi good afternoon.
I own an Asus Gamer G73 , had changed and then deleted the administrator password of the BIOS , but do not remove the user password , what happened was that when saving with F10 , changes guaradaron and I request the password user which I ignored , thinking to have a big problem, search the internet to find a solution without any possible since relog remove the battery from the bios for a few hours and nothing.
having a large and expensive paperweight , proceeded to think of giving up , however he had disarmed take the laptop , find a way to make a short board in what would be called CMOS , did not find any information on how to do without But what do my method and solve , so aquie leave some pictures of that part should make the bridge or short.
That worked for me, but I am not responsible for the results that can give them to you, just know that I run my me .

talking with asus customer support. they said "At the BIOS screen press Alt + R then enter 9AB1LBA1" did not work for me, maybe it will work for some one else.

again, i have set the bios password and forgot it. when my computer boots it boots to the bios password screen

That is EXACTLY what I told you to NOT do! How can I reach these KEEDS? Why won't they listen?!

Seriously though, these guys are doing a good job at helping you out.
