Hello pielcanela21 Ties describe the method is good but it can be broken if some one is little bit know about computer. He can break the bios password easily.
You should put Administrator password of you OS. XP or Vista
Go to control panel select "user account" select the user and set the password this is more secure password now one can access your computer if there is only one account.

Boot to the CMOS or BIOS setup and you will see tabs for what you can modify at the top. One will be Security and there you can enter a supervisory password. If this is a laptop DO NOT FORGET THE PASSWORD as you will not be able to bypass it like you can with a desktop computer.   When you first start the computer the display will say Press F1 or F2 or Delete to enter setup.

    How can my solution be rated as inappropriate? This is exactly the way it is done unless you are unaware of the fact that anyone can break the Windows Admin password just by changing hard drives, reloading Windows by booting to the cd or any other method of reloading the operating system. If you were not concerned with theft then go with the Windows password. If it is a laptop, which you never clarified, the password I described could only be bypassed by someone with factory-level knowledge. With all due respect your "Inappropriate" rating is inappropriate if you were only concerned with casual access to your computer as anyone who seriously wants access will have it. Steve Medley

Hi there,

when the computer is starting up, you can enter the BIOS setup by pressing either:
esc, delete, F2 or F10.
or try to look good when it start up witch is the right one for your system.
In the setup, there is a security setup, and the first one down is the boot up password.
set it and remember F10 to accept the change.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

I have done a research of losing Windows administrator password and find out more than 50% who have set password on their pc will finally forget it,espercially those women,add password to prevent their kids from downloading any games.


There are many reasons account for this.No mather how,when you realize you have forgotten password,you may try everthing you could do as there are many works waitting for you.No doubt, many ways can help you remove or recover the lost password, But here,I will show you how to delete Windows administrator password without any software.


Method 1


Boot up with DOS and delete the sam.exe and sam.log files from Windows\system32\config in your hard drive. Now when you boot up in NT the password on your built-in administrator account which will be blank (i.e No password). This solution works only if your hard drive is FAT kind.


Method 2


Step 1. Put your hard disk of your computer in any other pc .

Step 2. Boot that computer and use your hard disk as a secondary hard disk (D'nt boot as primary hard disk ).

Step 3. Then open that drive in which the victim's window(or your window) is installed.

Step 4. Go to location windows->system32->config

Step 5. And delete SAM.exe and SAM.log

Step 6. Now remove hard disk and put in your computer.

Step 7. And boot your computer


Method 3


Start system and press F8 key when Windows is starting up. Then select Safe Mode with Command Prompt and enter. Choose Administrator,the default password may be blank if you don't set the default administrator password before.Then you will enter into doc Command as following.


Type " net user net user xxx 12345 /add " (xxx is the locked accout name and 123456 is the new password set on this account).Then you will see the Command Completed Successfully.


Try these three method if you do not want to download a program to recover windows password. The preconditions is you should understand and be familiar with the operations


However,if you want to gain access to your pc in emergency,I still suggest you login to another PC which can link to internet and download a windows password recovery software to help.

I turn my acer aspire 5315 on and its asking for me to enter current password but i dont know it and dont know how to get past it what do i do ?


if the password comes up straight away on the laptop and its on a black screen, its a bios password and will be expensive to remove,
only cheap method to try is if the laptop has a internal lithium battery, remove it for a minute then put it back in.
if its a windows password let me know there alot easier to remove.

What is the power on password


You can add a Power On password to your computer or laptop for added security. When the system is first turned on it will prompt for the Power On password. Without it the computer will not continue to boot. Please note that if you forget your Power On password it is very difficult to reset access to your computer. These instructions include accessing the BIOS. Incorrect changes to the BIOS can prevent your computer from working. Please use these instructions with care

OK I GOT A ACER ASPIRE 3680 AND IT WAS STOLEN AND THEY RESET MY MASTER HDD PASSWORD AND I DONT KNOW WHAT IT WAS CHANGED TO CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME?


This is the service manual for your laptop. On page 99 is the graphic showing the jumper location for resetting the password. I am unsure with the graphic whether this jumper can be accessed through an access panel. The graphic shows the location on the motherboard and gives the number stamped on the board, You will have to take the access panels off and search for it. When you find the jumper area, use a small screwdriver that will short across the two contact points without touchinf anything else. Power the board up and wait untill the bios clears and system wants to boot. shut down power, remove the screwdriver or jumper that you use. Put laptop back together and boot the system normally. Go to the user control panel and change the password to one you will know.
