Facebook won't accept my email password

Your situation might have happened during logging in or while using Find Friends.

If it had happened during logging in, then you need to provide the e-mail ID and the Password you provided during Facebook signup.My guess is you would have entered password of your mail account in Facebook.

If it is during 'Find Friends', then you might have entered wrong password for your mail id.

Typical Usage for DOS and all Windows users ¦

1) Identify your BIOS manufacturer (usually displayed at boot-up)

2) Start in DOS, or start a DOS session in Windows 95/98/ME.
For Windows NT or Windows 2000 boot from a DOS or Windows 95/98 boot
disk (you can find boot disks at, and run
CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

3) C: [Enter]
CD\CMOS_Pwd [Enter]

4) Type CMOSPWD at the DOS prompt and press Enter.

5) CMOSPWD will display a list of possibilities. Use the possibilities
itemised against your BIOS manufacturer.
Remember :

a) For AWARD BIOSes, use the Numeric Keypad (with NumLock ON).
b) AWARD 4.50PG BIOS always accepts "AWARD_SW", or "d8on",
or "589589".
c) Old Phoenix BIOSes will accept "phoenix".

6) If the standard method does not work, then try to kill
the CMOS password with CMOSPWD /K (and press Enter),
and then see if you can get into the CMOS without a password.
If you can, you successfully "killed" the old CMOS password.
DO NOT KILL THE CMOS on IBM ThinkPad 765 laptops.

7) If you cannot kill the CMOS with CMOSPWD, then try the following,
all done from the DOS prompt of real DOS or of a DOS session :

DEBUG [Enter]
O 70 2E [Enter]
O 71 0 [Enter]
Q [Enter]

(The first character of each line above MUST be a letter, so whenever
you see "O", read it as the letter "O" and not the digit ZERO, "0").

'General Usage (List of commands) '

cmospwd [/d]
cmospwd [/d] /[rlw] cmos_backup_file restore/load/write
cmospwd /k kill cmos
cmospwd /m[01]* execute selected module

/d to dump cmos in ascii and scan code
/m0010011 to execute module 3,6 and 7

/kfr French AZERTY
/kde German QWERTY
default is US QWERTY

- Dos-Windows version
Well, ... it works!

- Linux && BSD version
Users can work on cmos backup but they need root priviledge to
use ioperm function to have full access to cmos.

- Windows NT, W2K, XP
Users can work on cmos backup. To work on cmos memory, gwiopm need to be
installed and running.
gwiopm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode process
(ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess kernel functions.

1- You need administrator priviledges to install this driver
"instdrv gwiopm c:\tmp\gwiopm.sys"
(To remove the driver, run "instdrv gwiopm remove".)
2- Start the service if needed with "net start gwiopm"
3- Run "Cmospwd_nt /w cmos_backup"
4- Run "Cmospwd /l cmos_backup"

'Laptops '

On laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard,
you need an eeprom programmer (electronic device) to retrieve it.

You can get/buy eeprom programmer in electronic shops or labs, you need
another PC to use it.
You can desolder the eeprom with hot air or you can try to "clip" the
eeprom. With the eeprom programmer, backup your eeprom and run
"cmospwd /d /l eeprom_backup". If you don't see the password, you can try
to fill the eeprom with zero or FF, don't forget the reset the cmos.

'Toshiba '
Differents passwords give the same 32-bit CRC, so CmosPwd can only give one
of them.
To reset the password of an old Toshiba, you can use KeyDisk. (cf my web page)
If this doesn't work, you can try to build the Toshiba Parallell loopback.
To make a simple device that you connect to your parallell port, a lot of
Toshiba computers remove the password when you boot it up.
The device, named "loopback" by some, could be made out of any
parallell wire with 25pins connectors (db25). You should connect
these pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, 18-25.

A db25 looks like:
1 13
14 25


- Award 4.50PG
There is an universal password AWARD_SW.
(d8on, 589589 ... works too)
- Award
Differents passwords give the same 32-bit CRC, so CmosPwd can only give one
of them. Use the numeric keypad.

Tolga Sinan Guney: there is a reset jumper on the motherboard
- DIGITAL PC300, Phoenix 4.0 Rel 6.0,0
Rene Pocisk: cmospwd /k works
- Fujitsu ICL

- Phoenix
There is a backdoor in old version of Phoenix BIOS, the universal
password is "phoenix".
- Siemens Nixdorf
PCD-4ND, Michael: You can clear the password of this phoenix 1.03 with "cmospwd /k"
Scenic Mobil 700, Josef Benda: "cmospwd /k" works! Phoenix Note BIOS v4.0
Scenic Mobile 510AGP, Bernd: "cmospwd /k" works! Phoenix 4.0 R6 Version 3F31 dated 9.2.2000

What to do if you can't use cmospwd to clear your cmos ?
You can use debug to reset cmos CRC stored at 0x2E-0x2F
-o 70 2E
-o 71 0

What to do if cmospwd don't work on your PC ?

Try to clear password with cmospwd /k.
If cmospwd /k doesn't work, password is stored in an EEPROM. Try to find a
reset jumper on your motherboard or contact your PC vendor.
If it works, I can try to discover how passwords are encrypted.
I need to know what Bios you used and
some cmos memory backup with their passwords. (cmospwd /w backupfile)
For passwords, choose
- some 1 and 2-letter passwords

How do i change my password and get a new password

If you lost windows password, you could enter into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to retrieve windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin password, there is no way to change it, you need to use a software application to recover administrator password. A week ago, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to recover my Windows password successfully. It's worth a try.

No the password.but wont let us into the bios,it just continues to windows

Hi kellydmurry,

If you have the right password then you should be able to get into the bios , it could happen that the password you are entering is a wrong one , therefore without displaying any warning to you the laptop is not going into the bios mode.

A good idea would be to check the caps key which you enter the password, try it one at time.

If you entered wrong password multiple times , it won't accept the real password for much time, so you need to wait at least for 15 minutes before retrying..
Hope this helps ...:)
