    HP n5350 Laptop running win2000. I haven't tried to get in bios in about a year. Now I can't remember the dang password! Is there a way to reset or get around it?

    Check your motherboard manual for a jumper to reset ur bios password. If there is not, then goto your bios website. They should have a master (Backdoor) password that will let you go in and change its. Hope this helps.

    After going to the Phoenis bios websit I found that there is no "back door password". With a laptop, how would I reset the CMOS?
