Hi mike,

i just had the same problem with a dimension. what solved the issue was a system restore to the first day the computer ran. this is way better than having the computer reformatted. once the system is restored to the first operating date, just turn your automatic update ON and let it rip.

hope this helps.

best regards,

How do fix my laptop it is locked even though I am using the correct password the laptop is a dell model

Hi Anonymous,

Let me know if the password prompt appears before the windows logo appears or after that. This is to know if it is a hard drive password or a BIOS password or a Login password. Please email the system service tag along with the customer name, place of purchase, address, email address and phone number to . Also send me a picture of the password prompt screen and then I can check and see what can be done.

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

How to unlock laptop

Passwords are put in place to prevent unauthorized use. Bring your unit to your seller and have them fix it. They may ask for proof of purchase but they should also have a record of your purchase.

How to remove BIOS password

If you have the current password, use it to access the bios password screen in your BIOS menu and leave the new password blank.
Assuming you don't have the BIOS password, there is generally a white jumper connecting two pins on the system board. With this removed, the BIOS password will not lock out changes to the BIOS. This is especially useful if you've purchased a used system that the previous owner locked out.

Purchased on Ebay an Asus which has a locked HD. I have booted it to USB stick with Knoppix. It has a 160Gb locked Western Digital drive. Is this a bios problem? Is it a HD firm ware problem. I'm not...

You have to erase the motherboard memory. However this is extremely difficult. Even if you esase the cmos memory and put in a whole new hard drive, the lock may still be there. Your best bet is to contact the seller to see if they will give you the password. If they dont want to help you then you should leave a negative feedback on their account.

Acer aspire 4520 laptop, I purchased at a yard sale, turned on ok, ask for password, attempted several times, no luck . Now lock out, can't power up.

If its your LAPTOP you may have the battery and the power adapter use it make it live and the password is from bios then you have to open the cover and remove the battery or if its asking after windows log appear you can crack the password using active@password crack software and you can use it or you can format it install new windows

Forgot my password

Hello PC-Bjorn,
I am attaching a weblink to a program called Password Changer. It has a downloadable demo version that will show you how it works but to unlock your old password, you will have to purchase the full program. If my memory recalls, the purchase price is around $38.00 dollars.
It is a downloadable program and I would recommend using the PayPal method of payment.

I too, had been locked out of my PC in the past and purchased the same program and I can say for sure, it works. It is also easy to use and takes only seconds to unlock the program.
I recommend you download the demo version first so you can become familiar with the program.
I am sure this will help you resolve your password issues.
