Remove the bios battery from the mainboard for about 45 seconds. if this is a password set in the bios it will reset it to blank. This will require unplugging the computer and removing the case or side of case. the battery will be easy to spot if not covered by something else, it looks like a large watch battery and just has a little clip holding it in place..

How to bypass Windows XP password? We often meet the headache stuff that don't know the Windows system password at the critical comment. How to do if you made a Windows XP password that you never be care of it? How should you do when your computer has parents controlled by the XP Administrator password? Or you need to borrow a friend's computer to carry out emergency work, but you don't know the admin password...Let's share some tips about how to bypass windows XP password.

First things first, try the guest account. Simply enter 'Guest' in the user name box, or click on the account labeled Guest. Sometimes people will have these account enabled without even realizing it, and many times they are left without a password. If this doesn't work for you, or you require a little bit more access than the Guest account provides, read on.

Next up is Windows XP's built in 'Administrator' account. This account is created during Windows installation, and is not accessible under normal circumstances. Many computers, especially those that come from Dell or similar companies, leave the Administrator account without password protection.

To get to this account, boot the computer into safe mode. You can do this by holding down the F8 key during startup, and selecting Safe Mode from the Windows boot menu. Once the computer boots into Safe Mode, you'll have access to the Administrator account. Things will look a little weird in Safe Mode, but don't worry, things will be fine when you boot normally again.

Once Windows finishes booting, try getting into the Administrator account, leaving the password field blank. If you're unable to get in this way, then there is a password on the account, and unless you can guess it, you're going to have to try something else, and you can skip the next paragraph. If you're in, then there's no limit to what you can do.

Besides, you can also take use of Windows password reset CD to remove Windows XP password if you forgot Windows XP password. Well, how can you get Windows password reset CD? Just download Windows Password Unlocker and a blank CD, you can DIY a Windows password reset CD in 4 steps.

In fact, Windows Password Unlocker can be used to bypass windows 7 password, bypass windows vista password , bypass windows NT password and so on.

try accessing your bios on your laptop and change the date on it. To access the bios just press F2 or F10 once you press the power button. Once you are inside of the bios locate the settings for date and time, then that's the time you can change and save it before you exit.
Hope it helps thanks.

Computer Maintenance


You may not realize it, but your computer and your car have something in common: they both need regular maintenance. No, you don't need to change your computer's oil. But you should be updating your software, keeping your antivirus subscription up to date, and checking for spyware. Read on to learn what you can do to help improve your computer's security.

Getting started

Here are some basics maintenance tasks you can do today to start improving your computer's security. Be sure you make these part of your ongoing maintenance as well.

* Sign up for software update e-mail notices. Many software companies will send you e-mail whenever a software update is available. This is particularly important for your operating system, your antivirus program, and your firewall.

* Register your software. If you still have send them in. And be sure to register new software in the future. This is another way for the software manufacturer to alert you when new updates are available.

* Install software updates immediately. When you get an update notice, download the update immediately and install it. (Remember, downloading and installing are two separate tasks.)

An ounce of prevention

A few simple steps will help you keep your files safe and clean.

* Step 1: Update your software
* Step 2: Backup your files
* Step 3: Use antivirus software and keep it updated
* Step 4: Change your passwords

Developing ongoing maintenance practices

Now that you've done some ground work,, it's time to start moving into longer term maintenance tasks. These are all tasks that you should do today (or as soon as possible) to get started. But for best results, make these a part of a regular maintenance schedule. We recommend setting aside time each week to help your computer secure.

* Back up your files. Backing up your files simply means creating a copy of your computer files that you can use in the even the originals are lost. (Accidents can happen.) To learn more read our tips for backing up information.

* Scan your files with up to date antivirus software. Use your antivirus scan tool viruses and worms. Also, check your antivirus program's user manual to see if you can schedule an automatic scan of your computer. To learn more, read our tips for reducing your virus risk.

* Change your passwords. Using the same password increases the odds that someone else will discover it. Change all of your passwords regularly (we recommend monthly) to reduce your risk. Also, choose your passwords carefully. To learn more, read our tips for creating stronger passwords.

Making a schedule

One of the best ways to help protect your computer is to perform maintenance regularly. To help you keep track, we suggest making a regular "appointment" with your computer. Treat it like you would any other appointment. Record it in your datebook or online calendar, and if you cannot make it, reschedule. Remember, you are not only helping to improve your computer, you are also helping to protect your persoanl information.

Good luck!

How do I get my password so a guest can use my wi fi


assuming this is your personal home wi-fi : find your wiless router manual... access from your browser by entering the ip address (refer to your manual)... go to your wireless security setting - some times you all you will see are just series of dots - (some do have a check box below that will let you see actual characters) if not just set up a new password. If you set up a new password you would have to update all computers that connects to your wi-fi w. new password.

A virus had shut down my administrator account and now I use my guest account. I want to add a new account so I can use that as my administrator account, but my administrative password will not work at...


Re-install Windows, choosing to install Windows to a different folder-name -- anything *OTHER* than 'C:\WINDOWS'.
Then, when logged-in to the "new" version, you can virus-scan your computer, and access all your files from the "old" installation.

Maybe, the virus-scan will clean-up the "old" installation.
Shutdown, restart, and choose to boot from the "old" installation.

I have a Toshiba Laptop Satalite A100 System Unit - Model No. PSAA8A-IHQ03R, which is installed with the Protector Suite QL, and is now approx 15 months old. Approx 3 months ago, the laptop was involved...


I have to give the credit to my daughter, who has fixed the problem so that all is ok.

She simply saved all the data on my file, then deleted it completely from the laptop. She then created a new User Account for me, after which the Security Suite asked me to enrol as if I was a new user.

At this stage, all is working perfectly, but I'm having a hell of a time going through & deleting all the double info, but it's working so I suppose it's worth it.

Hope this helps somone else.

Tried to remove guest from my computer ended up removing myself now I cannot reenter because I do not know the Administrator password and the person is out of contact


Hmmm... Shouldn't have deleted your account, especially with the Guest account turned off. Can't you contact the person with the Administrator password via telephone or email to get the PW? That is the only way I know of getting back to your desktop in XP without formatting the hard drive, and I'm pretty sure you don't want to do that.
