Re: power on password
If you have not set a password yourself, contact the person who owns the computer or who sold it to you. We here at FixYa do not help users crack passwords--we assume that if you are the legal owner of a machine, you should know the password or can contact the person who sold it to you. Sorry.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

If I understand correctly, you are referring to a password that is set in the computer's BIOS which comes before the operating system (Windows / Mac / Linux) starts.
Most BIOS passwords can be reset using a jumper on the motherboard. This is where it gets very specific to the motherboard so you should look for documentation on your specific HP model at support.hp.com.
Typically, you move the CMOS jumper to different pins, power on the system and when the POST completes, turn it off, move the jumper back to its original position, and the computer should start without the "power on" password. In short, it removes whatever changes were made to the BIOS.
.- please specify which password you talking about: power-on password, operating system password, ...?
There are many passwords: mail password, security password; LAN/server password, user password...
Which one you refer to?
As an easy method to reset Windows xp password , there are only four steps as follow: Step1: Download Windows Password Reset and install it. Step2: Burn the ISO image file onto a USB flash drive. Step3: Boot up your Windows 7 PC by the bootable burned USB in minutes. Step4: Remove Windows password on the operation interface and logon PC without password.
What color is the screen when you are being asked for the password? If it is black and white then do not enter any password just wait 30 seconds and allow it to boot into the operating system. If it is a windows "login" page; without actually being at your computer it is almost impossible to break the login access. If this is the case you may need to reformat or bring it to Business depot and have them use a password unlock-er (Not a password breaker, that's for hacking) for your operating system.
Faronics Deep Freeze is a very powerful application, it prevents any unwanted changes on the system by freezing an entire hard disk or partition without restricting user access. Unlike older version, Deep Freeze 6 cannot be disabled or uninstall this Deep Freeze without password. Before u reformat or install a fresh OS, try the steps below, without password.1. Boot yr PC from the CD with windows XP, if u have Windows XP OS2. Now enter R to repair after booting.3. Let it continue until finish4. Now prepare the DeepFreeze to install, u will come across a option "Uninstall Deep Freeze", select this option and click next. After finishing the uninstall, reboot yr PC. 5. Now u will find that the Deep-freeze has removed from your computer.
You've no chance of cracking the power on password without help from Dell themselves, but you have to have ownership of the laptop and have it registered to you with Dell otherwise they will refuse to give you the password to get into the operating system and reset the password.
If they do refuse then the only other option is to replace the motherboard which are not cheap.
The reason for this is that the power on password is stored on the TMP chip which is similar to the eeprom chip. It always remembers the password even if you take the BIOS battery out. You cannot reset the password without help from Dell.
Which operating system are you using????????? you could set a password in the BIOS, but as far as a operating system password goes, it would be difficult, at best, to reset a password without being logged in first.....
1) BIOS/ Power up password 2) Windows Login Password 3) Encrypted hard drive password
The BIOS password can usually be reset by the manufacturer or the dealer.
The Windows password can be cracked with software.
The Disk encryption password cannot be recovered, but
the disk can be re-formated and the operating system re-installed.
**** Be wary of the origins of this PC. Stolen PC's contain embedded RFID tags, which will identify them when you walk through a controlled door or an airport. **** Also many new PC's use the wireless internet to call home and report their GPS location. This feature cannot be disabled without a master password.
Assuming you legitimately own this PC, you probably want to call the manufacturer to unlock it for you, you may loose data when you do this.
