First shot would be to try booting in safe mode - there may not be the admin account listed in safe mode, or if there is, you might be able to enter it and change or remove the password for it.

Testimonial: "See, right now I cannot boot into any mode. That is the major problem I have not posted yet. This is going to be a series of questions before I get to that. (Start up Repair cannot fix) What is the CMOS battery? Is that the battery on the back of the laptop?"

SOURCE: Administrator Password for BIOS lost

Nope, if you do not have the bios password, the only way to reset it is by accessing the motherboard, removing case and keyboard, and either removing Cmos coin shaped battery for one second, or bridgeing the Cmos reset jumper (that interrupts contact to battery, same as removing battery).

SOURCE: Administrator Password for BIOS lost

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

SOURCE: Hello all, how to reset EliteBook 6930p

Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten HP BIOS password. One is forcing BIOS/CMOS to reset itself to its stored defaults by removing all power to it. The other is to use a program to either locate or identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely.
At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.

    Enable / Disable the Local (Hidden) Administrator Account in Windows 7


    Ways to Enable / Disable the Built-In Windows 7 Admin Account Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the Local Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?<br /> Recently I ran into an awkward situation where after disjoining a Windows 7 client machine from the domain, I was unable to log in to the computer.

    Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


    You might have it set to change at certain intervals
    IE: at log in or after each restart .......

    Disable password log in
    On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
    As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
    You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

    Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
    Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

    Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

    Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

    Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
    Mac Instructions

    Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

    Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

    Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

    Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
    Password login has now been disabled.
    also
    Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
    Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
    This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

    In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

    If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
    Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
    Otherwise, you won't be able to.
    Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
    Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
    Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
    This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
    In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
    Click on Local Security Policy.
    Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
    Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
    Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
    Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

    In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
    However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
    Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
    Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

    If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
    To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
    Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
    Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

    Tip

    Enabling Administrator Account in Windows 7


    In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
    Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password


    The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
    However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
    Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!

    To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
    Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.

    Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users.
    Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password

    In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".

    In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".

    Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".

    Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.


    Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.

    Cannot open, disable by administrator


    If you have been disabled by the administrator, you need to talk to that person.

    If this is your machine and you are the administrator, you have logged yourself in with a user name and password that does not have admin rights to the machine. If this is true, try logging on as "Administrator" or "Admin" and then use your normal password. Hope this helps.

    Log into your computer as administrator to do this. Most likely the password is Administrator, Admin or something like that and the password will be either blank or the same as the user name 'Administrator' or 'Admin'. Once logged in as administrator you can change the computer passwords and users accounts.

    I Cannot Reset a New Password


    Hi there
    You'll need your install disk.
    1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
    2. Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
    3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
    4. Set the user name of your original administrator account.

      Important:Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually areference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normaladministrator account.
    5. Enter a new password.
    6. Click Save.
