    Sorry, that one goes into the realm of hacking the operating system and I will not discuss those topics here.



    The BIOS is the only program a computer knows without having an operating system installed and is responsible for checking out your hardware every time you start the computer and then loading and starting your operating system. There are 2 levels of passwords that can be required at the BIOS level. One will allow the computer to boot up, but you need the password to enter the BIOS to change the settings. The other one will require a password to even boot up the operating system.

    Are you talking about a BIOS password or you put a password on the user account for Vista?

Its very simple...................

Reboot your computer............. press F8 to enter to the safe mode and select "Safe mode with networking".
After the startup ......... select the admin account , usually It dont have any password in the safe mode. Then go to the control panel-----> user accounts--------->reset the password for your account.

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


kathli.jpg

Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?


Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.


Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.


Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

Go to http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd and DL Hiren's BootCD 12.0. Burn the .iso to a cd-r or dvd-r. Make sure you go into the BIOS and change your DVD drive to be the 1st thing to boot. You should be able to boot to the cd and there is a Password recovery program built into Hirens. :)

I forgot pass word?


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how


Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.

I downloaded a copy of windows vista and it expired,im trying to reinstall my hp windows xp recovery cd and its asking me for a password,cant remember if i ever did set up a password for this pc.how can...


Hello,

At what point is it asking for a password? Has the computer formatted the hard drive yet? It sounds like you might be going in to Recovery Console instead of installing a fresh copy of Windows.

What you want to do is press Enter at the first screen, agree to the license, and then format your hard drive. After that, it will go through the installation without asking for a password. Remember - you'll lose all your data when you format.
