- If you have a computer that has the dreaded supervisor/BIOS/power-on password and that password has been lost or forgotten. There is a way to backdoor it in most models. When you attempt to log on you will get a message that you need to enter the password. After three unsuccessful attempts you will generally be given an error code. Copy it down and go to https://bios-pw.org and follow the instructions Enter the failure code and you will be given the backdoor password. Obviously, you need another computer to do that.
