    By " master password" do you mean the power on Bios password or the Windows Account password?



  • Jonathan May 11, 2010

    What operating system are you using? This is quite possible for a windows xp machine. Not sure about vista. Do you have a computer that you can burn a cd from?

Ok in order to reset the password you are going to have to download and burn a ultimate boot cd. The iso can be found here: http://pharry.eu/data/ubcd411.iso.php. The official site is here: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com.

  1. Once you have it burned to a cd insert it into the laptop.
  2. Start the laptop. Most likely you will have to tell the computer to boot from the cd. You can tell this if the laptop boots directly into windows otherwise it should prompt you for a brief pause with a "press enter to boot into the ubcd".
  3. If you need to set your laptop to boot a cd then when it first turns on you will have to enter the bios. Here is a tutorial to changing your boot order. The tutorial is for using wipeDisk but instead we will be booting the ubcd. : http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php
  4. Ok so your boot order is all set and you see a prompt to boot to the ubcd. Press enter and you should be at a Blue screen that says Ultimate Boot CD at the top.
  5. In the menu arrow to Filesystem tools and hit enter.
  6. Goto NTFS tools then Offline NT Password and Registry Editor
  7. It will start the editor and a bunch of text will scroll by.
  8. When it stops it will ask you to select a partition by number. Hopefully if all went well it was able to find your hard drive and your windows partition will be there. Select the partition that holds windows. Most likely number 1.
  9. Accept the default to the next prompt. Should be something about path to registry
  10. Select option 1 for password reset
  11. Select option 1 for edit user data and passwords
  12. Now hopefully your user account will be displayed. Type in your user account as shown and press enter
  13. Blank your password by entering an *. Don't try to set it to something else from here.
  14. Then do ! to quit
  15. Then q to quit and save
  16. Make sure to enter y to save.
  17. Select n to not try again
  18. Now eject cd and reboot to windows. And see if your account password is blank.
I hope this helps.
This has been tested on a windows xp machine. Though it should.

The problem-- wait. Can you boot into Windows or whatever operating system you have? If you can't, that's a serious problem. Because if you forgot your BIOS password...you're screwed.

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

Master Reset?

Meaning?

A) Master Password:
Laptop is taken down to nearest authorized agent, (Dealer or Repair Shop), and a Master Password is asked for.

You need to bring;
1) Form of Identification
2) Receipt for purchase of laptop
3) Credit Card or Debit Card

Authorized agent contacts laptop manufacturer.

Once the laptop manufacturer checks out whether the laptop is stolen, or not, (By their records), and receiving copy of ID, copy of purchase receipt, and fee, they will grant a Master Password.

The authorized agent then uses the master password, and sets another password of your choice, or No password if you choose.
The master password is Not given out.

B) Master reset being, reset the laptop back to the way it was, Day 1 from the factory.

Use the Restoration Disk, (CD)
When asked perform a Full Install.
Also known as Destructive Installation.

ALL personal records stored will be Gone.
1) No photos,
2) No videos,
3) No personal documents you have created, or downloaded,
4) No programs you have physically installed, or downloaded.

NOTHING is saved past Day 1 from the factory.

C) Windows installation disk:

Use the same Windows operating system, (i.e., Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc), from a NEW genuine copy of Windows.

Go into the BIOS Setup (utility), and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

This way the laptop will boot from the Windows CD.

"Master reset is a term used to describe the process of restoring an electronic device's FACTORY settings."

Have no clue what MFP - 05333449 is.

The laptop Model Number, (Product Number for HP), is on the Bottom of the laptop. (Or Netbook)
[ For example HP has a white Service Tag on the bottom.
P/N = Product Number ]

How to reset my bios password ? cause I've trouble to login to my system device, thanks


Only two places can assist you on how to reset your bios password on a laptop or notebook. Acer Support is the first and the second is Unlockbiosrecovery.com the only non manufacturer to help you reset your bios password or hard drive password on a laptop. The service is legit and very helpful when I need to bypass a bios password or hard drive password on a laptop that I am working on. They have simple instructions on how to get the information needed to calculate your unique bios master password for your laptop. That info and $20 gets you the same bios master password that Acer support would calculate and give to you for $150 and they guarantee it to work. I have checked this site by ordering a master password that I already had for my Dell from Dell Support which I misplaced, when I found my original bios master password from Dell Support and compared it to the bios master password Unlockbiosrecovery.com sent me and they were exactly the same password. Saves me a lot of time and frustration when I repair a laptop that has an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password that was set in bios. They are in California and have a phone number that real people answer and they are helpful and knowledgeable about unlocking bios or hard drives. Only real place I have found for bios recovery and hdd recovery.

A Windows password reset bootable disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your forgotten or unknown Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create one with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.

DELL XPS M140 MXC051 LAPTOP BIOS PASSWORD


Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

Forgotten password


Hello:

If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,
