I have a laptop compaq armada e500,but i forgot my admin can i reset it to gain access to my laptop?


You can create from another computer and run a Password Reset disk.

Download and burn to CD. Copy/paste this link:

Download this file and burn it to a CD.

Put into drive and turn on PC. Boot from your CD.

Follow instructions, choose the correct USER and BLANK out the password.

Make sure you say OK to write the data, and reboot.

The Administrator logon password will now be blank.

Note: Substitute a flash drive for CD, if your system doesn't have a CD drive.

Hope this helps.

Forgot password and cant login to my compaq armada e500

The Armada series are really nice pice of art. A bit old but nice... so, u can't login on windows? Use a Windows XPE (yeah, with "E") CD... on the iNet are many of those, and most of them come with a software for "unlocking" any user password of Windows XP.

And if u are talking about the password of the BIOS then u will have to open u notebook and remove the CMOS battery for minimun 1 minute. That will restore the default settings of your notebook, the settings that comes from factory, deleting any configuration made by the user.

How do I get past this Drivelock HDDBay password

Basically, for most of the notebooks, there is a Password provided to secure the data in the Hard Drive and restrict it from un-authorize access.
However, if the Drive Lock Password is set and forgot, it is not possible to unlock the Drive without the password.
However, you can try contacting any of your Friends who is familier with Hard Drives and is a technician who should be having some advanced methods to remove the Password or the Circuit Board of the Hard Drive.
