Computer won't load past password screen

Before going on vacation my boyfriend put a system password on so no one else could get into the computer while he was in mexico since he took the laptop with. It hasn't worked since. It will load to the screen asking for the system or administrator password then we will try to put it in but nothing works. How do we bypass it or fix it?

    hiiiiiiii ther
    how r u ???
    plz make ur quastion more clear
    do u need to restart ur bios password ? cos i thought it's the admin. account {in the previous comment}
    so if it's about the BIOS ther is some methoed to do so

    1 useing something called back door bios password {Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces,01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC}

    what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password

    2 resetting the bios password useing softwear {so u can use this softwear CmosPwd -- }

    3 resetting the bios password useing hardwear { and that's simply by takeing off the motherbored battery for some time up to 30 mins }

I have this same problem with a Dell e1505. You will not be able to clear it by taking out the CMOS battery. I have already tried that and it does not work because the password in this model is not stored in the CMOS but in a separate non-volotile chip. And you will not be able to do it by using software, because it never attempts to boot from any device until the password is entered. You cant use overloading the keyboard buffer. I have tried that and it just shuts it off it you over load the keyboard or mouse buffer. The only way to fix this one is with a back door pass word or on the hard ware level. And i have not figured out how to use either of these yet. So i am sorry i can't really give you a solution right now. I just thought i would save you the time of trying all these other suggestions, I already tried them on this model and it does not work. This is one of the tuffest ones to crack.

For portables, Dell has a department that can give you the generic password for the BIOS. The Dell techs will communicate to these people via chat. But they're just open 7am-7pm mon-fri.

How do I get past theYour pc will restart in 2 days to finish installing important updatesIt won't let me enter my password to unlock the pc

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart.
This will set the boot order
If this fails you might try some of these
Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Don't know the administartor password for Ctrl alt delete

Just reset windows password directly.

If you have created a Windows password reset disk at some point in the past, use it at the windows logon screen to change your password. The password reset disk will still work even if you've changed your Windows password since creating the disk.

Otherwise, break windows password with the Windows Password Reset

Unfortunately, you will have to start by reloading your Windows operating system. When the power went out, it probably blew away anything that was stored on the system.

Laptop wont turn on properly

A vital component that windows requires to run is corrupted. To fix it, you need the OS disc

In Windows Vista, there is usually a second partion on the harddrive that you can load by pressing F8 (or F10 depending on your system) and selecting the repair your computer option (depending on your manufacturer, you might need to input a password, after that choose the repair your computer option or solve startup problems

In Windows XP load the disc and open the recovery manager.
