How to remove forgotten power on password on hp 18'' all in one desktop pc


If I understand correctly, you are referring to a password that is set in the computer's BIOS which comes before the operating system (Windows / Mac / Linux) starts.

Most BIOS passwords can be reset using a jumper on the motherboard. This is where it gets very specific to the motherboard so you should look for documentation on your specific HP model at support.hp.com.

Typically, you move the CMOS jumper to different pins, power on the system and when the POST completes, turn it off, move the jumper back to its original position, and the computer should start without the "power on" password. In short, it removes whatever changes were made to the BIOS.

I hope this helps.

CLEAR POWER-ON PASSWORD IN XW 6200


Try Below step.

To disable the power-on or setup password features, or clear the power-on or setup passwords, do the following:
  1. Shut down the operating system and then turn off the workstation and any external devices. Disconnect the power cord of the workstation and any external devices from the power outlets.
  2. Disconnect the keyboard, monitor, and any other external devices that are connected to the workstation.
  3. Remove the hood cover.
  4. Locate the header and jumper. The password jumper is green.
  5. Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper on either pin 1 or 2, but not both, so it does not get lost.
  6. Replace the hood cover.
  7. Reconnect the external equipment.
  8. Plug in the workstation and turn on the power. Allow the operating system to start. This clears the current passwords and disables the password features.
  9. To establish new passwords, repeat steps 1 through 4, replace the password jumper on pins 1 and 2, then repeat steps 6 through 8. Establish the new passwords in Computer Setup.

Dell desktop dimension 3000 bios password at startup,how to remove?


Remove the Power Cord, remove the Case, turn computer onits side so you can see inside (you might need a flashlight). Remove theCMOS Battery which is a silver battery about the of a nickel that is onthe motherboard. You will need a flathead screw driver to pop it out. Leaveit out for an hour or two and then put it back and reboot the computer. When you reboot you will have to go into theBios or System Setup because the computer will have forgotten the date, timeand bios password.

How can you reset the cmos password


Dell Optiplex 780, user forgot BIOS master password (which is necessary to change the boot order to run BartPE from CD and do an image backup).

There is a jumper on the mainboard called PSWD1, which is set (shorted). Remove power cable from PC (CMOS battery can stay in place), open the lid. Remove jumper from PSWD1. Reconnect power, start the PC, hit F2 to enter BIOS. All passwords should be reset.

Leave BIOS, power off the PC, remove power cable. Reattach jumper to PSWD1, close lid, reattach power cable. Start PC. Enjoy.

Dear sir, i want to reset my power on password in my compaq evo d510 usdt computer . please help me i have forgot my password vsm


hi

you have lost or forget ten the XP administrator password, first reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password. Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK. if it did not help let me know

Unknown power-on password on hp dc5750 desktop


Sounds like somone has put What they call a bios/boot user password this is a password thatis used before windows even loads up.

If no one will tell you the password the only other way i know of to reset the password is to open the computer case and remove the CMOS battery which is a CM2032 button batter you cant miss it

Remove that battery and remove power to the case for a few minutes then replace the battery and power back on.
