How do i reset the
BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.
The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.
Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.
Password Recovery is a feature of Client Security Solution 6.0. This makes it possible for an end user to recover from the problem of "I forgot my Power On Password or Hard Drive Password."

How can i off the password at bios settings lenovo corei3 desktop
BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:
1. using software 2. using hardware.
I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.
!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Where is the product number on Idea centre A3
Are you referring to the Serial # when you say product #? If you do, for this certain unit A310 you will find it at the back of the system on a white rectangular sticker. Look for S/N. Serial # starts with 2 letters followed by set of numbers.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Disconnect all power sources, including the battery. Open the laptop and remove the CMOS battery (the little round silver thing). Hold the power button to drain any residual charge for 10 seconds. Boot the computer without the CMOS battery inserted. it should say password disabled. Reassemble the computer and you're done!
