You can do a CMOS/BIOS reset which will clear all the configurations including any password(s).

To reset the CMOS/BIOS. you need to open the case of your desktop PC and locate the jumper (JP1) for this purpose on the motherboard. It is located near the AGP Port, below the AMR1 connector. You need to move the jumper from the 2 pins where it is currently located and move it to the opposite pair (center pin will be common of course). After a few seconds place back to original position.

On reboot, press "Del" key to enter CMOS/BIOS setup, select Standard/BIOS default, Save & Exit, reboot "Del" key again, set to your preferences.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Toshiba NB305-N410BN mini laptop. I changed my password and can't remember what I changed it to save my life. I tried restarting it while holding down 0 (zero) but nothing happens. PLEASE HELP ME!

Try a password recovery tool, such as Ophcrack. It's a free download. You will need another pc to download the disc image and burn it to a cd. Then boot from the cd on your locked pc. You may need to go into the bios on your machine and change the boot order so the cd is before the hard drive.

Change your boot order in bios

Whenever the computer shows an error like "No operating system found" Or "no boot device found" the fix could be simple. If not a fix it definitely narrows the problem down. All you have to do is go into bios and change the order of the devices your computer tries to boot from.

Most computers have three boot devices.

1- CD-Rom
2- U.S.B. thumb drive or network drive
3- Hard drive

To change these and many other things is quite simple. There are special keystrokes to access bios. To find out which one applies to you watch your computer screen when you first boot your computer. The first logo or name you see (normally) is your bios. It will say Phoenix, Or Intel or something along those lines. After that when the computer first starts to boot you have to press the required keys and then the bios screen loads.

I have to stress one issue. We get a lot of questions here on Fixya about how to change the bios password. This cannot be done here. So

If you forget this password you cannot load your computer. You will have to take it apart and reset it manually If possible.

For the directions and on screen pictures about settings in bios follow the link below. Remember, this is a VERY tempermental part of your computer. If you don't feel comfortable making changes in here don't change anything until you ask someone and you are sure about the results.

Use with caution and thanks for using FixYa!

Dont remember my adminastrator password

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like

There is a free boot CD called Hirens. This one command prompt only.

Unfortunately you must get in touch with acer to reset the password. There is no back door password, those worked in 1999, they are soon 12 year old codes.

I'm not sure if you are physically trying to close  your pc, or if you have only set a BIOS password, have forgot it, and need to reset it.  If you have forgotten the BIOS password, you will need to reset the CMOS (BIOS) in order to access the BIOS and change your boot order.
Please provide the make and model of your PC, and I will post instructions on how to reset the password :)

Dont remeber my password

If the password you forgot is the user password, reinstalling the operating system will help you. If the password you forgot is the bios password(one which should be entered before boot up), you could reset it by removing and resetting the button cell present in the mother board.
