Remove the battery . Short the grounding strips made for this purpose on the mother board,or the battery terminals,if you can't find the strips.  Reinsert the battery and the pass word will be gone.

Hi, Sorry but we are not allowed to help people circumvent passwords or disable them. We have no way of knowing you are the laptop owner. Do you follow me? This is for your protection if this is your laptop.

You will have to contact HP directly and or the fingerprint scanner manufacturer yourself. On the back of your HP laptop is a Service Tag that sort of looks like this one.e424f16.jpg
Once HP is satisfied, you can receive instructions from them.

The only other way is to remove the wrist rest and keypad bezel carefully. It has a sensitive ribbon cable attached to the mainboard, don't let this become detached. Inside the mainboard is a battery pack that has a red and white wire. You disconnect the wire plug from its socket with A/C power removed and your battery out. Leave this plug out for several minutes. Replace it, replace your wrist rest and keyboard bezel and insert your battery, attach A/C power and boot up, immediately press and tap F10 to enter the Setup Screens. You will need to set the time and date and at the bottom of the screen will be a keyboard legend that will tell you which F key loads setup defaults, usually F9. Leave the fingerprint scanner off your system and seek advice on how to reset it to none from the manufacturer. Although most of these devices comes with a small CD to setup the scanner.

Hope this fixes your issue.

Good password, still won't let me in? it tell's me wrong password and I know I am using


Sites that provide email (web mail (yahoo, hotmail, ect) or corperate sites) will have a password reset. Go to the home page of the site providing you email and reset your password. On most sites this will either be done with "I dont remember my password" or "reset my sign on" or something simular. I know in my company your password will expire after so many days, that could be your issue.

For a more clear answer, please tell me how your are getting your email (program used, your email address, ect).

Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

Can't remember password


BIOS password remove alternatives:

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.


OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt.
The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Sister has forgotten password


Hi,

If she cannot remember the password you can reset it. This will require a seperate computer with a CD burner and a blank CD to make a bootable disk, then simply follow the instructions on the page linked below.

Before resetting the password check the lights for your keyboard though. You may have your number lock turned on which will turn 789UIOKJLM into 7894561230 creating a number pad on your keyboard. If this is the case find the key marked "num lk" if it is the same colour as the letters pressing it should disable the number pad, if it is surrounded by a line or a different colour you will need to hold down the Fn key then press num lk to enable/disable the numberpad, you should see a light with a picture of a lock come on and off to denote number pad on or off. Ensure it is off then retry logging on with her password. If it still doesn't work, then procede to the link below and follow the instructions carefully.

Forgot the password/code/security to let somebody else onto my linksys home wireless network. Don't remember how to do any of it or retrieve the security code to access the secure wireless network


Hi,

The easiest would be to reset the router using the small recessed button at the back of the unit. Performing a full hard reset (pressing reset more than 10 seconds) would clear the password. Of course, this action would also clear all other configurations and settings reverting the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
