Question about Computers & Internet
Power on password - if you mean the hdd password, buy a new hard drive unless you know the password. Administrator password can be got around with some expensive software. See utube and search google etc for suppliers.

Nope, if you do not have the bios password, the only way to reset it is by accessing the motherboard, removing case and keyboard, and either removing Cmos coin shaped battery for one second, or bridgeing the Cmos reset jumper (that interrupts contact to battery, same as removing battery).

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Best is to reset the administrator password using the Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/
This utility will enable you to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista etc system.
The link above includes some directions on how to use this utility. But the basic idea is to download the ISO image & burn it to a CD. Then use this CD to boot up your laptop & reset the administrator password

I repair laptops for work and when I get a HP mini with a locked bios and unknown password then I use www.unlockbiosrecovery.com and for $20 they send me the master bios password for my specific laptop which clears any bios password set. It has saved me so much time and money!! They do most laptop brands and models. They can also clear hard drive passwords on laptops.
