If you mean you cannot log on to windows, then press F8 while booting up, then this will take you into safe mode, select start windows in safe mode and then choose the administrator account and go into windows, make yourself a new user account, then delete the paswsorded one and restart the notebook.

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?


Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

I bought a IBM thinkcentre from Circuit City but no cmos password


Best thing to do is take it bake and see if they set it for security reasons and have them unlock it,If they can't,It will need to be flashed since the bios password is not stored like it used to be.

as for the extended warranty if it is still under manufacturers warranty you should be able to get it from the place you purchased it from( if they offer it) or the manufacturer.
