Take the case off the computer (usually two screws on back) and remove the small (cmos) battery from the motherboard, it will have a small clip holding it in. Leave it out for about a minute and replace it. this will reset the bios password

Ok, so you say you forgot your Windows administrator's password, huh? Oh well, it doesn't really matter if you did or you just say you did. The fact is that you need to gain access to a computer and you cannot "remember" the administrator's password. How can you get out of this situation without formatting and re-installing the operating system?

One method of gaining access to the system is by trying hard to remember the forgotten password, or a password of another user which has the same level of administrative rights. However I don't think this approach will help you, otherwise you wouldn't be sitting here reading article, would you?)
Another method is by trying to restore a backed up System State (in Windows 2000/XP/2003) or a ERD (in NT 4.0) in which you do remember the password. The problem with doing so is that you'll probably lose all of the recently add users and groups, and all the changed passwords for all of your users since the last backup was made.
A third method might be to install a parallel operating system on a different partition on the same computer, then use a simple trick to gain access to the old system.



Note: If you are looking for password cracking tools that can be used for miscellaneous objectives such as password-protected PDF documents, zipped archives, Office documents, BIOS protection and so on then this pages is NOT for you. See some links at the bottom of this page for hints on where to find such tools, but I can tell you right away that Google might be a better choice for you.
The fourth option is by using 3rd party tools that will enable you to reset the lost password and logon with a blank password.

all depend where the password is save. u havent mention if its when the pc starts up or in windows. if its in the starts up then you will have to remove the battery and open the laptop, find a round battery or a small blue battery call it Cmos battery, u have to remove it for a while about 5seconds then replace it again. make sure the battery and the power cable are not connected to the laptop.

Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD


if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck

Forgot my password


Lost passwords are never good. Not all hope is lost, so long as you aren’t using the master Administrator account. You didn’t specify which operating system you were using, but this tip is for XP only, as the main Administrator account is disabled in Vista by default.First thing you’re going to do is reboot your computer. When it comes on, press the F8 key (you may need to tap this a few times, just to make sure you’re hitting it at the appropriate time). You should be greeted with a prompt for booting into Windows, select Safe Mode. When the computer finishes booting, you should see an account labeled Administrator. Try to log into this account. If no administrator password was setup when you installed Windows, it may let you right in. Otherwise, you’ll need to remember that password that you set.
Once in this account, head into the Control Panel and access the Users area. You should be able to select the account you generally use, and reset the password. If you can’t get into the main Administrator .
Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.For example generally

Lost password


Hi hull,

Losing your Windows password can be one of the most frustrating experiences you encounter. With so many passwords to remember, it's a miracle our brains don't crash or need to be frequently defragmented. Fortunately, we aren't so hopeless and neither is losing your Windows password. Retrieving a lost Windows password is as simple as following a few easy steps
1Put your Windows XP operating system CD into your CD-Rom drive and start your computer.
Step2Choose the specified key to run from the CD. In most cases, a message will appear which instructs you to "Press any key to boot from CD." Step3Wait for Setup to check your system and load the appropriate files. A message will appear indicating this action. Step4Press "Enter" to setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement, then choose the "Repair" option on the Setup screen. Step5Allow the Repair function to complete its process. It may takes a few minutes for Setup to copy all of your files. Wait for the computer to reboot. Usually a message appears indicating that the computer will reboot in 10 to 15 seconds. Refrain from pressing any keys after the computer starts again. The computer will reboot automatically. Step6Watch the bottom left corner of your screen for the "Installing Devices" message. Press "Shift + F10" when you see this. A command console will appear allowing for access to a number of system functions. Step7Type "NUSRMGR.CPL" and press "Enter" after the prompt. This will give you graphical access to the User Accounts in your Control Panel. Step8Select the account that needs to be changed and alter your password or remove it altogether. Type "control userpasswords2" if you want to log on without using a password. Close the windows and exit the command console. Enter your Product ID when prompted. Step9Log on to your system according to the new password option you chose in Step 8. This process does not damage your previously saved files and settings, so they should still be intact. anaanymous

I lost my setup password


I can get you started if you're looking for the bios password. reboot the system. when you're prompted for the password press F12. this will give you a 5 digit hash code. You'll need this to crack the master password. beyond that, I can't help but the hash code should get you started. good luck.
