Desktop,on the motherboard there's a little silver battery that pops out,by doing this ,it resets your password.
on a laptop,it's on the back of the laptop,unscrew the cover and unplug the cmos battery for 30 seconds and that will reset your passwords.
i hope this solves your problem.

Fijustu ah530 corei 5 bios password

BIOS on a Fujitsu C-Series LifeBook b> Resetting the BIOS system of a computer can help revitalize the computer's usage. Oftentimes computers are "broken" when they are misconfigured in the BIOS menu of the computer before it boots up. When the settings are improperly selected, the BIOS prevents the computer from working properly. To get the computer back up and running again, the BIOS needs to be reset. The Fujitsu LifeBook C2111 has its BIOS system located on the motherboard beneath the keyboard.

Turn the Fujitsu laptop over with the computer powered off. Remove the AC adapter and push the battery release latch in and pull the laptop battery out of the Fujitsu. Remove the screw holding the hard drive in place and slide the cover off of the laptop. Remove the two screws underneath the cover that holds the hard drive onto its bracket. Slide the hard drive out of the laptop. Turn the computer back over and lay the screen down so that it is parallel to the surface on which the laptop is resting. Remove the small screw above and to the left of the keyboard with the Phillips screwdriver. Push the keyboard toward the screen until it disengages. Fold the keyboard over the screen and rest it there with the keys facing the screen. You will now see the motherboard of the Fujitsu C2111. Locate the small, round lithium-ion battery on the motherboard and remove it. This is the BIOS battery that stores all of the settings and password of the BIOS when the computer loses power. Hold the power button in on the computer to drain the BIOS system and leave the battery out of the laptop for at least 30 minutes. Place the BIOS battery back into the motherboard and reattach the keyboard. Tighten the keyboard screw that you removed earlier, and turn the Fujitsu back over and reattach the hard drive along with the covers for the hard drive and RAM. Push the computer battery back into place and attach the power cable to the computer. Turn the Fujitsu back on and the BIOS menu will be reset.
or b> Start the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots, if the computer is currently off. If already on, restart the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots. The BIOS setup utility will appear. Press the right arrow on the keyboard and scroll over to the "Exit" tab. Press "Enter." A drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down to "Default Settings" using the down arrow key and press "Enter." A dialog box will appear, asking if you are sure you want to load the default settings. Scroll over and select "OK" using the arrow keys and press "Enter." All BIOS settings will reset to the default value. Scroll back to the "Exit" tab using the arrow keys and press "Enter." Scroll down and select "Save Changes and Power Off." Press "Enter." The computer will save the default BIOS settings and power down. Fujitsu Lifebook T Series b> Restart your Fujitsu Lifebook T Series computer. Press "F2" as soon as the computer starts booting. Enter your current BIOS password if prompted. Use your right arrow key to select the "Security" menu. Use your down arrow key to select the password you want to reset. Press "Enter" to select the password. Enter the current password when prompted. Enter your new password or a blank password if you want to clear the password. A blank password resets the BIOS password completely, meaning you do not have to enter a password to enter the BIOS or boot your computer. Press "Enter" to save your password settings.
Repeat the process if you have multiple passwords set. Press "F10" to save all settings and exit the BIOS.

The enter key doesnt work

What program are you trying to access ?

The enter key is usually used for DOS command prompt.
or when typing in passwords to enter certain programs or computers and email accounts
click stat type into search cmd press enter a black screen should open

It might be a problem with the actual enter key on your keyboard.

Gather your supplies. There are commercial kits available, but a can of compressed air, a lint-free cloth or wipes, mild dishwashing liquid, and a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush are all you really need for a basic cleaning. After turning off your computer and unplugging your keyboard, gently shake the keyboard upside down over some newspaper to dislodge loose crumbs and particles. Use the can of compressed air to blow a stream of air between the keys. Repeat Step 2. Dampen a lint-free cloth with a diluted solution of dishwashing liquid and water to wipe down the keys. Use the vacuum cleaner brush attachment to suck away any remaining dirt or debris. If you have a membrane-type keyboard (it doesn\'t have a spring under each key) and the keys are truly grungy, you can remove the keys with a small screwdriver and use cotton swabs and 90% isopropyl alcohol to get it sparkling clean hope this helps

When I switch on my laptop all that comes up is black screen with a blue text box asking for a password. When I enter the password I use for my windows, it does not work. I have a n acer TravelMate C120

You have encountered what is called a "Power on password", this will only go if you enter the Bios based password. Removing the CMOS battery will not work as this is stored in a chip on the laptop.

In passing on this bit of advice, i'm assuming you own the laptop and I take no responsibility for it not working on your laptop. I have done this on one of mine and it worked.Your call..

Remove the Keyboard from the laptop
Remove the Wlan card
Under this you will see two contacts marked C88 (there is an X next to them)
Power on the laptop and touch the two contacts with a flat blade screwdriver (in effect shorting them)
Replace the Wlan card but not the keyboard as yet
Reboot and the power on pass should have gone
If it has replace keyboard if not retry above steps

Admin. password lockout

This solution requires partial disassembly of the laptop. Using another person's laptop at hand, go to Dell Support site and enter your Service Tag # from the slender white label from the bottom of your laptop. Find the link for "Manuals". Go to your Service Manual to see visual step by step photos of what follows.

1. Unplug the laptop and remove the main battery.
2. Remove the power strip
3. Remove the keyboard.
4. You will see a small, round, flat, circular silver battery inside a round plastic housing. It's called the CMOS battery. Gently pop it out. Leave it out. Wait ten minutes for all powqer to leave the main system board.
Reverse Steps 3 through 1 and power up the laptop.

You will see a system message asking you to go to setup (F2 Key) because the date and time aren't right. Ignore it. Press F1 key to start normally. If you're back to your desktop, go to the Control Panel and reset the Date and Time there.

If this doesn';t solve the problem, you'll need to find someone with a copy of Hiren's Boot CD who knows how to use it to reset the password to NONE.

If you haven't opened up a laptop before, find a friend who has or be as crazy as I am. It's how I got started in this business. LOL

Good Luck

Unable to keyin password while XP login page display

If I understand correctly, Yvonne - your keyboard just beeps when you key in the password? And then you are not passing this point -

It may be the keyboard itself - the beeping may be a stuck key.

Try to boot your system into SafeMode. Turn the system on and as soon as you see the Logo, begin tapping the f8 key. You should be given an option of how to boot your system. Select SafeMode. The next screen is the operating system (Win XP) press enter. The next screen will list all the accounts - plus the Administrator which is the one that you'll want to select. If you didn't add an administrator password during the last installation of Windows, you should just be ablr to press enter and move on to the desktop,

Remember - the Administrator can do anything -

Let me know how you make out, but please note: There's a limit as to what can be done with password workarounds due to privacy and the liability factor.
