You must be talking about a startup password that protects unknown users from even booting the OS or getting in BIOS... Usually the only way to fix this is to reset CMOS by battery removal (internal CMOS battery), but depending on your pc, sometimes an EEPROM chip must be replaced because these chips do not loose their value if the power is removed.

Administrators should change this password frequently to avoid unauthorized access to the domain or desktop machine.

You can also use an account that has administrator privileges on the domain or desktop computer.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Run" or "Start Search" (depending on your version of Windows).

In the text box displayed, enter "cmd" and press the "OK" button.
This opens the command prompt window.

Type "net user administrator <new password>" into the command prompt.

Test the new password by rebooting the machine and logging in with the new administrator password.

I would like to change my password


Change an Internet Password

Use a bookmark, a known URL, or a search engine to find the password-protected website you are looking for.

Input your username (also called an online ID or user ID).

Look for a link that says "Forgot your password?" or something like "reset password," "reset passcode" or "password help." Click that link.

The website may require you to fill out fields with information about yourself and your account, in order to verify your identity.

If it does, submit the required information.
The website will then allow you to input a new password.

Type a password that conforms to the website's password requirements (for example, the page may indicate that the password has to contain both letters and numerals or that it has to contain a certain number of characters).

You probably will be asked to confirm that password by retyping it in a second field.

Enter the password again for confirmation.

Every time you choose to save a password in an application or on a Web site, the password data is stored in a secure location on your computer.

If you are an administrator, you can access the password data and retrieve a list of passwords that have been used on your computer.

Password data is stored in different ways on PC and MacIntosh computers, but the information is accessible on both types of systems.

Log on to your PC computer with an administrator account.

Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Run" button.

Type "keymgr.dll" into the text box and hit "Enter."
The Key Manager utility program will launch and display a list of passwords used on the computer.

Highlight the password item you want more information about.

Click on the "Properties" button on the right side of the window to view more information about the selected password item.

The pop-up window will display the username, password and server address for the selected item.

Mac Instructions

Log on to your MacIntosh computer with an administrator account.

Open a new "Finder" window by clicking on the icon in the dock.

Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive.

Double-click on the "Keychain Access" icon to launch the utility program.
A list of all the passwords used on your computer will be displayed.

Highlight a password item and click on the "i" button at the bottom of the window to view more information about it.

Hope this helps.

I want to save password in explorer automatically. i do not want to see option to save password.


Internet Explorer 8, like other modern Web browsers, includes the capability to securely store your user names and passwords for your favorite sites across the Web.
This functionality reduces the hassle of having to remember your log-in information for each site you visit, as IE will "AutoComplete" it for you.
If this setting is disabled, you can easily enable it in IE's Internet Options settings pane.
Open Internet Explorer 8.
Click "Tools," then "Internet Options." Select the "Content" tab.
Click "Settings" next to "AutoComplete."
Place a check in the box marked "Forms" and "User names and Passwords."
You can optionally check the "Prompt me to save passwords" if you wish to selectively save passwords.
Click "OK" to save the changes.

I forgot my password, how do I retreive it?


nor sure what password you are referring to BIOS or Computer

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
