SOURCE: compaq c-series 2010c unlock utility code

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user passsword

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.

SOURCE: Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

I have an advent netbook and when I turn it on all i get is 'bootmgr missing' ctrl,alt del to restart. If i press f11 im told to enter a password but i do not remember setting one. Is there any way...


You can try fixing the MBR if you have a spare windows disk handy.

  1. Put in the windows disk, then restart the computer
  2. If using a Windows XP disk, wait until the setup process starts and it asks if you want to install or enter recovery mode, press R to enter recovery mode. If you're using Windows 7, put in the CD, select your language and keyboard options, then select "Repair My Computer" on the bottom left.
  • XP: Press 1 then enter to select the windows installation. When it asks for the administrator password, type it if you know it. If you don't, it's probably blank, so just hit enter to go past this screen.
  • That will take you to a C: Prompt, at which you type fixmbr. That should solve your problem.
  • Windows 7: Select the OS (if none's listed, just select "next"), then click "Startup Repair". That should find/fix any startup problems. Try running it 3-4 times if it hasn't solved the problem, sometimes it takes multiple runs.
That should solve your problems, but if not the answer is to do a new installation, unfortunately. You can use the System Rescue CD to pull off any data that you need to save, then re-install the operating system and put your data back on.
