You can clear the cmos with the jumper or just pull out the batter from the motherboard for a few minutes. That should do the trick.

Hewitt packard nt 4200 reset


I am guessing you are looking to change/reset the password that comes on when you boot the computer. You'll have to enter the BIOS when you first start your computer (usually F2, but sometimes it's different based on manufacturer) once you've entered BIOS (Also known as setup when you first boot the computer). You may have to enter the password before being allowed to continue. Once inside, look for a "Master password" or "Password on boot" option. (each BIOS is different, and may be labeled something different.) Find the option to reset and or change the password. Be sure to save any changes you made and reboot the computer.

I like to Restore System To Factory Default I have lost my Password to Empowering Technology for Acer Aspire M1610


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

Administrator password


Passwords. Those ubiquitious alpha-numeric codes that protect us and give us access to everything digital. Unfortunately, passwords can be confusing because, though your computer likely won't forget a password, you very well might. When this happens, you can be locked out from your whole system, as in the case of the Windows XP Administrator Password. This article will show you how to remove an Administrator password.
Instructions:
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.
Second way:there is some recovery tool like Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/ can help you.
Good luck!

I believe I need to jump the computer because I got a used machine that is locked by a password. I do not have the original discs. The computer I have is a ECS running Windoes Professional, the motherboard...


Check the motherboard's manuals to see if there is a jumper to reset the CMOS.

If not, unplug the power cord to your computer, open the side, pop out that same battery and keep it out for over 24 hours. After 24 hours (or more) have elapsed, plug the power cord back in to your computer's PSU. At this time we will not be inserting the battery. Start the computer and see if it still asks for that password.

If so, when does it ask for the password? Does it ask after the system POSTs and is about to boot from the Hard-Drive? If so there's a possibility the previous owner of the computer downloaded some form of application that activates when windows begins to load which asks for an authentication code, in this case the password. In such a case you will have to reformat the hard-drive and reinstall windows.

If not it's possible that the CMOS reset is not working (for some odd reason).

I hope you get this resolved, sad to buy something then not get to use it.
