Question about Computers & Internet
I'm not sure what is meant by it being on top of the bios password, I'll need more info.
However, A bios password can be reset by removing the coin cell battery for 15 seconds from underside of most laptops in a compartment with a cover removable by a screw(s).
If the password is not part of the bios it is on the hard drive. The only way I no of wiping out an operating system password such as in windows xp is to do a fressh install of the operating system wiping out the old one.
Other than that the only other place I could think of there being a password is on the boot sector of the hard drive and formatting the boot sector and repartitioning the hard drive wiping out all data can remove any password on the hard drive.
