1. Turn off the power, and unplugged the power cable.  2. Find out the BIOS reset jumper location on the motherboard. There should be a three pin jumper and two are connected with a jumper (pin no 2 and 3 connected).  3. Pull up the jumper, and insert the jumper (to connect pin no 1 and 2). Wait for about 10-15 seconds. 4. Pull up the jumper again. Reposition the jumper to the previous (default) position (to connect pin 2 and 3).  5. Plugged the power cable, and turn on the power. 6. The BIOS configuration will become zero (including password), and you can re-adjust the parameters according to your needs.

You need to open the CPU, be sure the CPU is unplug the energy, you need search the clear CMOS pins in the main board, they have a mini black plastic square, you need to put this in the 2 pins, this generate a shortcut and reset the CMOS to original state, this don't erease anythig else, only the date, time and POWER PASSWORD. ok

TIP: whe you put the mini black plastic square in the pins you can ONLY RE-CONNECT THE POWER CORD for a few secons, then unplug the power cord again and keep the mini black plastic square and put this in only one pin, YOU NEVER RUN THE MACHINE WHIT THIS MINI BLACK PLASTIC SQUARE OR DAMAGE THE MAIN SYSTEM BOARD FOREVER!!!!!

I forgot administrator password. how do i restore to factory settings on a compaq?


If we are talking about Windows passwords You can restore from OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) CD.
You can also obtain a program that will reset your password from outside Windows. I have one and have used it successfully several times.
If you need a password to access HP's boot process or BIOS then you may be able to get a program that will do this also or find a "backdoor" password for access. It seems many manufacturers created a backdoor password for just such a situation. If it is your BIOS that you need a password for start with obvious passwords like "backdoor", "password", "doowssap"(password spelt backwards) and anything else you can think of.
