Question about Computers & Internet
Was giving the tower but forgot to ask for a pass word. I have no Cd or anything to reset. How do I wipe it out so I can log on and change the settings
Therefore, if you want to change the password you have set on your laptop, there is nothing specific you need to do with the laptop itself.
Rather, the change simply needs to be made with the Windows operating system.
Changing your password from time to time is a good idea if the laptop is in a location where others can easily access it.
Turn on your eMachines computer.
Press the "F8" key as your computer starts up. A screen called the "Windows Advanced Boot Options" menu will appear on your monitor.
Highlight "Safe Mode."
Tap "Enter" to start your computer in Safe Mode. Click "Start" and type "lusrmgr.msc" into the "Search" box.
Click "Local Users and Groups," then click "Users."
Right-click the account for which you are resetting the password and choose "Set Password."
Type the new password, then type it again to confirm it.

the only way is to open the laptop up and there will be a small watch type battery, quite big but flat. it will be on the motherboard. take the battery off the otherboard for at least 10 seconds and then put it back in. this should reset the bios to factory default.

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

SOURCE: I forgot my bios password
If you have forgotten your BIOS or system password, there are no software tricks or magical gimmicks that will get the password cleared. Laptops are different in that they are designed to not work with “backdoors” etc. for security reasons. There is one true way that works most of the time and that is hardware.
The Cmos (RTC) battery that is mounted on the motherboard in most cases holds the key, if your motherboard has the battery that is connected to the motherboard by using a two wire socket that plugs into the MOBO, then here is the procedure.
On the motherboard where the battery plugs into, you will see two pins sticking straight up, these engage the plug on the battery side. These two pins have to be “shorted” and then the motherboard powered up for approx. 30 seconds, then power down the system and replace the Cmos battery and reboot. Only reboot with the AC adapter plugged in, not the main laptop battery. Your password problem should be cleared up. The best way to “short” the pins is get another cmos battery and cut the wires from the battery part, bare the ends and twist together, this will short the pins. Make sure you tape the connection good on the jumper you just made….don’t want to touch anything else with powered up bare wires. Good luck.
If the battery is the disc type and sits in a horizontal socket on the motherboard, then it is a little more difficult to perform but the theory is still good, the positive and negative have to be shorted and the same procedure done. In most cases, just removing the cmos battery does not work in laptops, this is because there is extra security needed because of their portability.
