SOURCE: Hard Drive Password Lock out

If you are able to locate either the jumper (JBAT1) terminal from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2; or the cmos battery(remove for about 10 minutes) which will be on the motherboard although where is anyones guess, unless somebody does know, but i'm sorry i don't. Athough this may not open up the hardrive as sometimes there is a hidden file on some manufacturers hardrives that sometimes prevent formating.

Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: it says missing operating system

You have a crash on your hands. Try removing the hdd and ram - cleaning the ends or terminals on the pieces you CAREFULLY remove and then place them back into the PC. First remove and clean the HDD - then remove the RAM - - if you have more than on 'stick' of ram - pull them both - clean them both then STOP. Put just ONE stick of ram in the machine and try to start it - if it doesn't start remove that stick of ram and try the other. If the Laptop comes on then try the other stick. Pay attention because if one is bad it will stop the pc from working. Sadly it sounds like you will need to either repair or reinstall the Operating system. However there are things you can do to find out what you must do. Try these things and let me know how it works out.

SOURCE: eee pc 1005ha bios setup won't start, it just hangs while entering, just after detecting the hard drive.

Maybe you are not giving it enough time to get into the setup.

Let it sit for a while and see what happens.

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

I'm locked out my labtop and its a dell I can't remember my password


Either boot from the Windows CD and format the drive and reinstall Windows.


Or, look for a free suite of programs call HiRens
-Burn it to disk and boot your system from it (Put it in the cd drive and restart - it should be picked up by default, if not, you'll have to change the boot order in the BIOS)
-Use a program on the disk called Active Password Changer

This will let you reset all local user account passwords.

There is not much else you can do if you don't know any logon passwords. But HiRens works for me everytime I need to do this on a users system.
