I would Say the if you have another account that has Administrator then you could go to that account and then proceed to switch over to your actual account and change it's password. all is done by pressing start, go to your picture, of your other administartor account, and click on your picture so you can proceed to on the left side, click change account and click on your old account. Then all you have to do is change your pass from their

Is it a hardware bios password or the windows password? A bios password will show up just as you start the laptop. It will be one of the first things you see on the display. After entering it the laptop will continue to load and the windows logo will show up. If you don't see any windows logo showing up, then the password is hardware based and that program woun't help you. If you found that this is your case, please post a comment and I'll try to explain what to do next. Please note that this process may involve some dissasembling of your laptop in order to get to the BIOS chip on the mainboard.

I am often required to sign into gmail; i have indicated i wanted google to keep my password on

Google is trying to keep you secure. Security is not free and requires some effort on the user's part.
All email systems use some form of authentication, such as passwords.
If a password is too much work then switch from email to texting.

Power-on password on hp 8510p

Power On Password & Hard Disk Password
With your next laptop you should protect it with a Power On Password AND put a password on your hard disk. This will stop anyone from using your laptop and if they move the hard disk from your laptop to another laptop they cannot access the data on your hard disk with the hard disk password.
BUT you need to write down or remember these passwords; if you lose or forget them you cannot gain access to your laptop.
There are no backdoor passwords to remove these passwords.
To set up or change these passwords, go to the BIOS configuration - then security configuration.

Cant remember my log on password for my asus laptop whats the master reset password?

There is no such thing as a master over write password.
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :-

If you are trying to connect to the wireless from this said PC and you do not remember the wireless password, you will have to reset the router and set it up again. This time, write down the password in a safe place, or use something you know you will not forget... Drivers license number, License plate number..... something.

Cannot access acout because cannot remember password


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

Sony vaio mod PCG370 need bios password clrd

WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. Be sure to set a password that will be easy for you to remember, because by setting a BIOS password you are limiting access to the computer only to users who know that password. If the BIOS password is ever forgotten you will not be able to access the computer and it may be necessary to perform a system recovery in order to regain access. This is from their support site.

If you have recovery CD do a recovery if not purchase one. Do a complete restore and recovery often times you can pull the back off where the CMOS battery is located and pull the battery out for about 25 seconds and it may reset it to default for you to access your Windows Operating System again.

There is also software that you can download that will clear the BIOS as well. On laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard, you need an eeprom programmer (electronic device) to retrieve it. Also a great resource for free password removal for laptops is Click Here I hope that this assisted you in your issue with BIOS password access. This is why unless you are really needing to block the BIOS I never set passwords period I also recommend people do not set a password there really is no reason to. Unless you know that someone is going to access this and change anything most folks do not even know how to get there. If you do need a password set make sure that you will remember it I think you have figured that out by now. Thanks for using FixYa! John
