SOURCE: i forgot my administrator password

Are you talking about the administrator password in windows? If so it doesn't have to do anything with bios and you have reset the motherboard to factory settings.

To be able to install window xp or vista you will need to set the settings in bios to boot from CD,A,C in that sort of order so that the cd rom will boot. Place in the CD into your primary cd rom/dvd rom and exit saving changes to bios. When the computer goes to start up it will ask you to press any key to continue into installing windows. Follow all the prompts and you can select to install a new version without saving anything.

See how you go, I will be on live Chat on saturday GMT 10.00 time 8p,m onwards.

SOURCE: administrator password

If you don't have to enter a password to access the BIOS, you can go in and remove the requirement to enter a password on Bootup.

Otherwise you can unplug the computer from power, unplug the power supply, and then remove the battery on the Motherboard to clear any stored BIOS and Bootup passwords.

I have forgotten the password that i used when opening my account. please assist. thank you phill rogers


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
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:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
