SOURCE: child forgot password

You will need to start the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. Once in safe mode, log in as the administrator, from here you can clear user passwords in the user accounts section.

SOURCE: a205-s4607 cant get past bios password

You will need to reset the CMOS/BIOS

Tools needed:
Philips screwdriver
anti-static wristband.(if you dont have one then make sure you touch something metal before touching any circuitry in the computer)

unplug the laptop and remove the battery pack from the laptop. While unplugged press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds to discharge any power left in the laptop.

(IMPORTANT: Make sure you wear your anti-static wristband or touch something metal before handling the circuitry of the computer)

This is where it will get tricky you will need to open the laptop and look for a battery on the main chipboard(motherboard).Be extremely careful because there will be ribbons connecting the keyboard to the motherboard so take apart the computer slowly. Slow and Steady wins the race here. The Battery will range in size from the size of a nickel to a quarter. You will need to remove this battery. wait about 15 seconds then put it back onto the motherboard where you just took it out from. Put computer back together and plug battery pack in and plug in power and turn on you should be able to access BIOS without being prompted for a password.

You will need to reset the Time and Date of the system in BIOS once completed.

If this is too techy for you then I recommend taking it to your local computer repair shop for them to do for you.

good luck

How do I factory reset my Asus x553m I don't remember putting password to access my computer as soon as I start it up and now I can't get past "enter password" as soon as I start up

That sounds like a hard disc password. There is no way around it and keep your data. The easiest way is to purchase a new hdd and start again. The hdd with the password is no longer useable without the password.

Buying a used laptop with a password protected bios

Folks when you are considering buying a used laptop. NEVER buy one that has a password protected bios. If you are looking at it and its not in a Windows screen asking for a password DONT buy it unless the seller shows you they can log on past it. Then make sure in that case you have that password when you leave. There is NO bios password work around, no program that can get past a firmware password at all. I think today I posted at least 10 times the same answer for people asking for a bios password. If they say they forgot it then that laptop is a paper weight unless your buying it for parts only.

I have a HP EliteBook 840 model number I need to restore to original settings I cannot get past the lock screen with password with password password

Why would you need to have a work around on a password for a laptop you supposedly own? Did you forget the password?
You also don't need a password to do a system restore to factory stock.
I don't provide password work arounds due to the fact some questions are for items the asker is potentially not the item owner..
