You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

It sounds like someone has put a password on your BIOS on your laptop.

The BIOS is what boots up the laptop before Windows even begins to start.

This password will not let you do anything until it is removed.

The best way to fix this without knowing the password or who set it, is to discharge the battery that keeps the BIOS settings in check.

Basically, to do this you need to remove what's known as a CMOS battery from the laptop and leave it out for 5-15 minutes.

The CMOS battery for your laptop, and how to remove it, is located here:

Remove the battery for 15 minutes, put it back in. Your BIOS settings at this point will set back to default and the password will be gone.

It will not let me try to open files, delete files, open programs or delete them. It does not accept me as the Administrator even though I am and it is password protected. I can't download files...


Can you go to Control Panel and verify that you are an Administrator? Try creating a new account.


To make and add a local admin as Guest! Save as batch file in startup group. Copy syntex and paste into Notepad. Save as Admin.bat. Go to Start > All Programs > Startup. Right click and save in Startup folder. Reboot. You now have an Administrator account. Login as Nadmin. No password required.
Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts to make user changes.


@echo off
net user Nadmin /add /expires:never /passwordreq:no
net localgroup "Administrators" /add Nadmin

The BIOS password is necessary to allow the computer to load it's basic startup programs before Windows begins to load. If you don't know the password or have forgotten it, you will have to have someone clear and reset the BIOS by disassembling the computer.

Bootup password


to be honest, your probably not going to get very much luck on this one. the bootup password, if i'm not mistaken, would be your system startup password. it's built into your bios (which is part of your motherboard). it's not even on the hard drive or the operating system in any way. no windows or anything involved. if this is the case, there's not really anything you can do aside from remember the password. however, if it's a windows password. you have several options. including small programs that bypass passwords for windows.

The administrative password is different in the bios settings


You can reset the password easily by removing the battery which will clear the CMOS. If you aren't comfortable doing this, perhaps you can find someone who will do it for you. It's not hard to do, and you won't hurt anything as long as you unplug the computer and discharge any static from your body. (Just touch something metal - like the rails on your desk or something else.)

Windows XP Passwords


Well, the best way to setup security is through a BIOS password. This bypasses any operating sytem and doesn't allow any user interaction until the password is entered. Also, a user cannot edit anything in the BIOS without a master password.

Most BIOS systems can be entered by pressing delete during the initial startup of the machine.

As for windows XP, the only true security it has is the startup password. Which is setup through the users menu in control panel. You can, however, setup advanced security and disable many abilities of other users using the Administrator account on your operating system.
