Hp compaq nx6110 power-on password

Hi! bunnydawg,

This is a reply to your clarification request.

It is not the operating system that is asking me the password. The computer request the password at power-on before the operating system loads. At power-on, It gives an option of F10 and F12 which both lead to cmos setup but require a power-on password to procceed any further. Can you help?

    You may want to search for bios utilities; some claim they can reset bios passwords. But bios passwords on laptops are another animal and bios passwords on many laptops are two level. If it's just a bios password they may help you, but if its a two-level bios password set on the hard drive, they can usually not resettable with software (OEMs theft control).

    Contact me ( with a picture of the screen at point of password request (probably need to us camera) and I'll try to help you further.

A505 S6970 Toshiba laptop HDD#1/SDD#1 password

Maybe you mean log on password. If you never enter a password to log on, but suddenly when turning on the computer, you are prompted to enter a password to log on, but always failed. You try to log in using an administrator user but failed. Chances are, the operating system is infected with viruses.
So, the operating system has controlled the virus.

Install the new operating system (not repair the operating system)

My compaq laptop is asking me for a administrator password or power on password it alos say System Disabled (996974482)


That is a BIOS password that you will never get past without the master password. I suggest that you get in touch with HP and request the password from them, you will have to provide proof of purchase before they will supply you with the password.

You cannot format c drive while windows is running. If your operating system is in c drive then you need an operating system disk to reinstall and while doing this you will be asked to format your c drive If you want to format c drive without loosing data then simply transfer your data to another drive on your computer and use operating system disk to bot your computer Wait for the setup files to load and choose fresh installation option You will be asked to choose the drive to install OS and you can select c drive Then you will be available with an option to format c drive and install OS It will not effect other drives on e computer and your data is safe After installation of OS you can browse through other drives to retrieve your data. Hope this helps or you can ask for clarification if you need Thanks

Hi, looks like my Fn is always on :( cant type even a password,any solution? Ty

Sometimes the Fn is "co-operating" with caps-lock. This means that Fn "locks down" when the caps-lock is enabled. If this don't work clarify me the model / brand and your operating system in order to make a further research for you.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I bought a asprie 5100 from a pawnee shop. Little did i know the last owner left the password on there and now i cant get into it. how do i get into it to get the password off it?

If the default Operating System, i.e. windows xp is still installed, you can try login using the Administrators account. Once you reach the Login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Del two times, you'll get the classic login box with username and password box. Usually the admin password is left blank, in the username box, type in "Administrator" (without quotes) and leave the password box blank and press Enter or click "Ok". If you are fortunate, you'll be able to login with the Administrator's account. You can make the changes with the default user account which is password protected once you are logged in as Administrator. If this isn't working and there's a password with the administrator's account or if it's not windows xp, your only option is to format it and reinstall the Windows.
There are several methods, but those are not authorized to apply without proper license and without authorization and will termed as Illegal if found. Actually it's System administrator's or System engineer's job to do all these.

In fact, this technique is not allowed to us

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

I forgot my administrator password, therefore cannot access my computer at all. How do I recover it?

Assuming that your operating system is Windows XP there are 2 ways to recover your administrator password
Step 1: Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive and boot your computer. If you receive the message "press any key to boot from CD" press any key.
Step 2: Press Enter to setup Windows. After accepting the license agreement, you wil be asked if you want start a Repair process.
Step 3: Press R to begin the Repair process. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files, which can take several minutes. After this, reboot. Let the computer boot normally (do not press a key to boot from CD).
Step 4: Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This will open a command line console.
Step 5: Type NUSRMGR.CPL at the prompt and press Enter. This will give you access to User Accounts. Remove or change your password. Write it down! After the repair is finished, you will be able to log on with your new password.
Download this link, unzip it and burn it on a cd. Take a note at the instructions from readme file. There are directions for bootable USB also. Follow the instructions.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Once i open my computer dell 1535 it request for system adminstrator password which i do not have?help please

I have few questions before we proceed, is the question being asked before you reach the "logon screen"?. There are different passwords like bios password, hdd password, and user password. If you didn't set the user administrator password, just leave it blank and hit enter. Please let me know with the operating system running on your system. Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
