Can't get past the system password prompt

When I boot up the pc, I get "Type the system password and press " then the prompt. I try rebooting and pressing F2 and F12 but it doesn't go to set-up or boot menu. I have recovery discs but they won't boot up either.

    set system password, but when I try to type it in, it acts like my keyboard isn't even hooked up. However, when I press "enter", it says that it was a failed attempt and the system must shut down.

The startup password is enabled... To get rid of the password prompt you will need to open the case of the computer, unplug all cables from the back, noting from the inside. On the inside remove the memory battery the bios should eventually clear and the password will be gone. There should also be a jumper you can change to another position and back to reset the bios, its documented in the user manual of the motherboard incase you have it.

remove the battery for 30minutes see if its solved if not leave it out over night, if its still not solved we will need to find the user manual to find the jumper, if you post the model details that are written into the motherboard I can look it up for you.


Anything Else?

MRB Error message on Gateway laptop 6510GZ. how can we resolve?


First of all I'm not this smart. I found it and pasted it here for you from:
http://www.pcpowerguide.com/windows/damaged-mbr-error-message/

They get all the credit!

MBR is the acronym for Master Boot Record. The master boot record is located in the boot section of your hard drive, which is the first sector on the first platter. When you boot your computer, the master boot record tells the computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) where to find the bootstrap code for the operating system.
So if the MBR is corrupted, the BIOS can't find the operating system and you can get error messages like the following ones:
  • Missing operating system
  • Error loading system
  • Invalid partition table
Looks pretty scary, doesn't it?
However, it is usually not that hard to fix a corrupted MBR and usually the rest f the hard drive is just fine and will boot normally once your fix the master boot record.
What Causes Damage to the MBR? A lot of things can cause damage to the MBR such as viruses designed to corrupt the boot sector. Some of them copy the original MBR to another file. Others do this by overwriting the MBR with virus code. In fact viruses and malware are one of the most frequent causes but, any file can become corrupted especially files that are accessed as frequently as the MBR.
How to Fix the MBR The stapes to fix the MBR are slightly different in the different versions of Windows. So I will cover them separately.

  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. Select the Windows Vista operating system and click Next
  6. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  7. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  8. When a command prompt appears, type bootrec.exe and press enter to fix the MBR
  9. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  10. Remove your installation CD
  11. Click Restart in the System Recovery Options window

Internet explorer will not allow to go to secure settings


Cause:
  1. Keyboard issue
  2. Miscellaneous corruption
  3. Corrupt boot.ini file.
  4. Missing boot.ini file.
  5. Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file.
  6. Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
  7. Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
Solutions

Before trying any of the below recommendations it's recommend that you attempt to load the last known good configuration.(this can be done by tapping the F8 key while booting and selecting last known good configuration)

  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD into the computer. Note: If you have a system recovery CD or restore CD (not a Microsoft CD) these steps will likely not work for your computer.
  2. Reboot the computer with the CD and press any key when prompted to press any key to boot from the CD.
  3. Once in the Microsoft Setup menu press R to open the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to use; if you only have Windows XP on the computer you will only have one prompt.
  5. Once prompted for the password enter the Admin password and press enter.
  6. Once at the command prompt type bootcfg /rebuild to start the rebuild process.
  7. The rebuild process will step you through a number of steps depending upon how many operating systems you have on the computer and how the computer is setup. Below is a listing of the common steps you are likely going to encounter.

    * Prompt for the identified versions of Windows installed. When you receive this prompt press Y if the bootcfg command properly identified each of the Windows operating systems installed on the computer. It is important to realize this command will only detect Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT installations.

    * Prompt to enter the load identifier. This is the name of the operating system for the boot.ini. For example, Microsoft Windows XP Home users would enter "Microsoft Windows XP Home edition".

    * Prompt to Enter OS load options. When this prompt is received type /fastdetect to automatically detect the available options.

  8. Once you have completed all the available options in the rebuild and are back at the prompt type exit to reboot the computer.
If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
  5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32
  6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file.
  7. Type exit to reboot the computer
Attempt to check the hard disk drive for any errors by running the chkdsk error. To do this follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
  5. Once at the recovery console type chkdsk /r
  6. Once completed type exit and see if issue is resolved.

Resetting iTunes administrator password


Which Operating system is it ?
If you have forgotten the admin pwd then you can try the following :

You need to bootup into single user mode (command+S at startup). It will take you to a command prompt. From the prompt you can do:

passwd user

Where user is the shortname for the admin account (you can lookup the shortname from the System Preferences->Accounts pane before you boot into single user mode). You type in the new password twice .. then type:

reboot

voila.

OR you can try...

At command prompt:
1.type: mount -uw /
2. press enter
3. type: /usr/libexec/register_mach_bootstrap_servers /etc/mach_init.d
4. press enter
5. type: netinfod -s local
6. press enter
7. type: SystemStarter
8. press enter
9. type: passwd root
10. press enter
11.type: reboot
12. press enter

Dont forget to rate this!
