Forgot password for HP LAPTOP NOTE BOOK


The CMOS battery on an HP NoteBook is incredibly difficult to access. It is located under the motherboard, which means that EVERYTHING must be taken apart just to get to it. Been there, done that, tempted to just make a hole in the back of mine just for that reason.
As for a Windows password, those can be reset fairly simply. There are softwares (many good ones are free) that you boot up from a usb or cd and go from there.
It is even very easy to reset such passwords manually by first booting up into safe mode (not so easy to do in Win 8 though, sorry) and running the command line interface cmd.exe with elevated privileges by right-clicking on it and then run as administrator.
Enter the command: net user
This shows you all of the user accounts on the system. You will see in the list of users the account you selected a name for and a couple others like Guest and Administrator. These two are deactivated by default, but may be activated and used.
Reset the password for a user account by entering:
net user (UserName) (UserPassWord) active:yes
Note: (UserName) refers to the name of the account you are working on, and be EXTREMELY careful when typing the password. This method will not forgive any typing mistake. It will just do what you typed in. There is no OOPS button here!
Those are the two options, manually in safe mode or boot a password reset program. Many of these are free.
If you are resetting a user password for Windows 8 though, it will take a lot of searching and trying different programs. Many say they are compatible, but , , , :-)

Reset password


Plug the phone in and allow it to boot up. Once the home screen is displayed, press and hold the 4, 6, 8, and * keys for about three seconds, or until you hear an audio alert and the phone asks you for a password. Enter 456 (default Admin password) and the phone will default itself. If the password has been changed, and 456 does not work, enter the MAC address of the phone as the password. Entering the MAC address of the phone will only reset the Admin password to the default, so it will probably be necessary to repeat this procedure, entering 456 the second time, to factory default the phone.

Password unknown and no disk to restore


The problem-- wait. Can you boot into Windows or whatever operating system you have? If you can't, that's a serious problem. Because if you forgot your BIOS password...you're screwed.
