The bios password can be reset on the motherboard.
Look on the hp website for instructions on bios reset.

I need BIOS reboot password for Asus x552e laptop...complete hard reset with no disks as laptop was purchased from a pawn shop. Please help


When you say "BIOS Reboot Password", are you trying to say that you are unable to get to the Operating System because there is a BIOS password required that you don't have, OR are you able to boot the system, but want to return it to the factory defaults since it was previously owned? In the first case, you have a problem. Without the BIOS password, you may not be able to access the system at all. This should have been checked out at the pawn shop before the purchase - I mean who wants to own a brick? If you CAN boot up, but are trying to access the recovery partition to restore the unit to factory-new load condition, then you need the manual. You can find the manual in your language at the link provided below.

Look at the back of chapter five for "reset" procedure. You will see that pressing the F9 key during the POST time will send you to a reset screen that will let you return the PC to factory defaults. This is dependent upon, however, the recovery partition to be still intact and working. Best of luck to you.

Got locked out of my laptop its asking for a password & i have never had one


The person who owned it before you has probably put a bios password in the computer locking you out. I strongly recommend you take it back to the pawn shop and get your money back, or the seller gets a hold of the customer to get the required information, because without it the laptop is useless to you.

Just bought a Eee PC 1000HA from a pawn shop, and when I charged it and turned it on, it goes to a bios screen that says at the bottom that the hard disk is locked. It ask's for user password or press ESC...


When buying things from a pawn shop, it is wise to check it out to see if it functions properly before you purchase it.
Hard disk passwords cannot be broken/hacked, and putting a new hard disk in the laptop may not work, this depends upon the BIOS password setup.
I suggest you try and return it and get a refund.

Acer Aspire 9300-3716 password


My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

I bought a used HP Pavilion Ze4500 and do not know the previous owners password (got it from a pawn shop). How do I get it to let me reset the password so I can log on and use actually use it?


Hello, Jessie.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and add your own account.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in “Administrator” in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Create your account.

Hope this helps
