There are no backdoor passwords that you can use to get into your computer. The password is not stored on the BIOS and removing the BIOS battery will not help you. The password is stored on an EEPROM chip, you need a hacker who can solder a piece of hardware to this chip, run a program to read the contents of the chip to reveal the password.
IBM state that you need to buy a new motherboard to fix this problem.

My hp desktop L1506 is locked and I forgot my password... Can I fix this


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

Forgot password to log onto computer, how do I get pass that or reset to another password. Or remove password altogether?


Depends what password it is. Is this to log into BIOS? Or log into a system account on an operating system? And if it is the latter, what operating system version do you have?

PLEASE MY EEE PC KEEP ASKING FOR A PASSWORD ON BOOT UP.


When you turn on the Eee PC you should see the Eee PC logo. Press F2 at that time to access the Bios. NOTE: recommend not to change anything else while in bios.

Once in the bios press the right arrow button to move to the tab labeled Security. NOTE: tabs located at the very top of the screen,

On the Security tab press the down arrow button to highlight the option to change the supervisor password and follow the prompts.
NOTE: to have no password leave password blank.

Once done press the right arrow button to exit and then press the down arrow button to select the option "Exit and Save Changes"

When the computer restarts it should no longer ask for password when turning it on.

I have a hp computer that we recently moved from one room to another..and now..i can not log into it.."it" keeps asking me for original password and there is no way i can locate it..i tried calling hp...


Try to log in using the account name administrator and no password.
If you cannot change the account name press CTRL+ ALT+DELETE two times then type administrator for the user name. Do not type a password in the password box just click OK and hope that who set up the computer did not select a password. If this works proceed to the next paragraph, if it did not restart your computer pressing the F8 key during the boot screen until you can select the safe mode.
When you get into windows select start then run. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. Select your user name which you forgot the password and select Reset Password. Type in a new password and select OK. You now have a new password for that account.

My son has a netbook we got for him at christmas. he promptly set and forgot the password. after months of trying to remember his password he gave up. maybe hes smarter than his old man but i cant stop...


Depends where the password is either at WWindows Logon or in BIOS.
If at Logon try booting into safe mode (F8) click on Administrator and access passwords / change / remove passwords.
If still no go there are password hacks on the internet

Try this also
For windows xp, there is a separate hidden account called administrator. The easiest way to access it is to go into safe mode. You do this by tapping F8 just after the self test, and before windows starts to load. Once on the start up menu choose safe mode. Click on the administrator account. From there you can change any passwords in the control panel under user accounts. You do not have to know any of the passwords to change them.

Or you can use recover windows password software to remove the password.
I recommend advanced windows password recovery 3.0
it's a professional tool.
