    Thanks. I have a master cd which completely restores the laptop and have tried using that but it will not run cd's until i have entered the password. How would i go about removing the battery? and would this wipe off my data as i have a level coursework on it :(

  • camillyvanil Mar 13, 2009

    Thanks for the ideas. I now know it is the bios password. I tried removing the battery for around 5 minutes and then tried a bit longer however, the password request is still appearing. The laptop is any adevent. Any suggestions for the password??

You can do it the hardware "way" where you have to open your laptop and remove a battery inside the computer or can do it the software "way".. I would recommend you the software if you doesn't have tried to open a laptop before..

Download this and burn the image to cd and boot from it: http://www.pccmos.com/download/PCCMOSCleaner.iso

    DO THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK.. YOU CAN END UP MESSING UP UR LAPTOP IF YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG..



    Ok then you have to upon up your laptop with a screwdriver and look after something like this:


    Or like this:


    When you find it unplug for approx. 5 min and plug it back in.. When you turn the computer back on it may warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Select defaults..



    Now password should be gone..

Laptop says no boot device found


Hard drive has failed, bios is drained or boot order was changed. When you start it there should be a message that says to press a certain key to enter setup, press that key and then look for the date and time, if it is good look for hard drive info. If it is not there then the drive is bad

Cant remember password how can i get access 2 my files etc


Hi!!!

Assuming you have XP OS installed. /// if you have other please let me know
  1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it's assumed here that your XP CD is bootable - as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
  2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be "Press any key to boot from cd"
  3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.
  4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
  5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
  6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair. It should read something like "If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it"
    Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
  7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
  8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically - you will see a progress bar stating "Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds"
  9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of "pressing any key" to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
  10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
  11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
  12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you've made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
  13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password).
Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact. I tested the above on Windows XP Pro with and without SP1 and also used this method in a real situation where someone could not remember their password and it worked like a charm to fix the problem.
This security hole allows access to more than just user accounts. You can also access the Registry and Policy Editor, for example. And its gui access with mouse control. Of course, a Product Key will be needed to continue with the Repair after making the changes, but for anyone intent on gaining access to your system, this would be no problem.

Thank You.

I forgotted my win. 7 proffesional password.


Follow the steps below

Step 1
Put your windows 7
operating system CD into your CD-Rom drive and start your computer.

Step 2
Choose the specified key to run from the CD. In most cases, a message will appear which instructs you to "Press any key to boot from CD."

Step 3
Wait for Setup to check your system and load the appropriate files. A message will appear indicating this action.

Step 4
Press "Enter" to setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement, then choose the "Repair" option on the Setup screen.

Step 5
Allow the Repair function to complete its process. It may takes a few minutes for Setup to copy all of your files. Wait for the computer to reboot. Usually a message appears indicating that the computer will reboot in 10 to 15 seconds. Refrain from pressing any keys after the computer starts again. The computer will reboot automatically.

Step 6
Watch the bottom left corner of your screen for the "Installing Devices" message. Press "Shift + F10" when you see this. A command console will appear allowing for access to a number of system functions.

Step 7
Type "NUSRMGR.CPL" and press "Enter" after the prompt. This will give you graphical access to the User Accounts in your Control Panel.

Step 8
Select the account that needs to be changed and alter your password or remove it altogether. Type "control userpasswords2" if you want to log on without using a password. Close the windows and exit the command console. Enter your Product ID when prompted.

Step 9
Log on to your system according to the new password option you chose in Step 8. This process does not damage your previously saved files and settings, so they should still be intact.

Hi I posted a problem last night about my asus eee pc 1005ha... kept rebooting at windows load screen. so I brought a dvd burner to run windows disk & do repar. it would go through everything fine...


Hi.

Solving your problem is just as easy as 2 hour work. not more..

By the time you were having the restarting problems.. all you had to do was to boot from usb cd-rom using Hirenes boot cd 10.

It starts a small intergrated windows. then you would have to go to a menu to stop some un-named startup bugs that cause the restart when Explorer.exe is being executed by windows.

so now, if you have your backups safe, get instruction on the internet on how to make a bootable usb windows vista or 7 Setup. windows seven comes with many drivers for new laptops.

Boot your computer from USB flash disk, run the windows 7 setup and enjoy..

hope this information helps you because it helped me with Acer One netbook..

good luck

HELLO I HAVE BROUGHT A USED DELL LATITUDE LAPTOP IT CONTAINS THE ADMINISTATOR PASSWORD HOW DO I REMOVE IT?


As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type Administrator (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from Control Panel - User Accounts.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
Windows password Recovery software:
for example:Windows Password Recovery It is easy and convenient to use.

Os keep restarting. on boothing the laptop, the windows starts and the user interface loads. when ask for username and password, on entering the username and password, the laptop restarts.


Hi,

From my point of view I think the Operating system needs to be Repaired and below is a guide on how to repair
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you DO NOT want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read WARNINNG #2
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. After the installation is over the system will reboot.

Enjoy
