Download the CD image (ISO) of the Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) here:

Burn it to a CD, boot the system from it and then launch the Offline Windows Password and Registry Editor. It will allow you to reset the account password. Then boot up normally and log in.

SOURCE: systm password

Is this a power on password? Or a windows password?

As long as I have worked on laptops, never seen one that had a password jumper. Now, I'm not that familiar with the Durabook. But my guess would be, they are just like the rest.

System passwords are not meant to be easily removed. Since laptops are easily stolen these days, system passwords are sometimes a real pain to clear.

You can look inside for a CMOS battery and try removing it to see if that removes the password. This works on some older laptops. But in todays age, alot of manufacturers have resorted to storing the system password on a different chip, outside of the cmos chip.

You may need to send it in to the manufacturer to have it removed. Or there are some other, more complicated measures that can be taken to attempt to clear it.

Try this:
In order to reset the Master BIOS password on a durabook, you need to remove the CMOS battery and leave it out for a period of time. This will reset everything and allow you to enter the BIOS screen again.

Master Reset?

Meaning?

A) Master Password:
Laptop is taken down to nearest authorized agent, (Dealer or Repair Shop), and a Master Password is asked for.

You need to bring;
1) Form of Identification
2) Receipt for purchase of laptop
3) Credit Card or Debit Card

Authorized agent contacts laptop manufacturer.

Once the laptop manufacturer checks out whether the laptop is stolen, or not, (By their records), and receiving copy of ID, copy of purchase receipt, and fee, they will grant a Master Password.

The authorized agent then uses the master password, and sets another password of your choice, or No password if you choose.
The master password is Not given out.

B) Master reset being, reset the laptop back to the way it was, Day 1 from the factory.

Use the Restoration Disk, (CD)
When asked perform a Full Install.
Also known as Destructive Installation.

ALL personal records stored will be Gone.
1) No photos,
2) No videos,
3) No personal documents you have created, or downloaded,
4) No programs you have physically installed, or downloaded.

NOTHING is saved past Day 1 from the factory.

C) Windows installation disk:

Use the same Windows operating system, (i.e., Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc), from a NEW genuine copy of Windows.

Go into the BIOS Setup (utility), and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

This way the laptop will boot from the Windows CD.

"Master reset is a term used to describe the process of restoring an electronic device's FACTORY settings."

Have no clue what MFP - 05333449 is.

The laptop Model Number, (Product Number for HP), is on the Bottom of the laptop. (Or Netbook)
[ For example HP has a white Service Tag on the bottom.
P/N = Product Number ]

Post back in a Comment.

How do I rebuild the MBR?


Hi,

You will need an XP install CD for this and also set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
  3. When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.
  4. The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
    To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
  5. The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis. To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
    Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.
  6. Type fixmbr and then press Enter.
  7. The fixmbr utility will write a master boot record to the hard drive that you're currently using to boot into Windows XP. This will repair any corruption or damage that the master boot record may have.
  8. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a corrupt master boot record was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Regards.

Its locked and needs a code


Is it locked it in BIOS or in Windows? If it's locked in BIOS, you will need to open up the laptop and locate the jumper and remove the CR2032 battery from the motherboard.

If it's locked in Windows, you would need to re-install Windows again to reset the password.

But if it's locked because of the product key code, then you will need to call up Microsoft automated telephone line. Just have the internet access ready.
