If you dont know the system password for your System, or u've forgotten it, then you might have to reset your CMOS, which means you will have to unscrew your system, remove all cables supplying power to the board, locate the CMOS battery and remove it for a few seconds, then replace it and screw your system back. This will reset your system's CMOS back to its Factory default settings. (If you cant unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you instead.)
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

How to delete passwords


What is the use of deleting a password you have been forgotten?
Some apparatus, can be given a reset, so they come back in factory settings with a standard password. For that see the manual of the apparatus. Most accounts can't be given a reset. Security systems protecting data, most of the time can't be given a reset, without loosing all info.
If security systems could be opened with a "standard" password the whole system would be worthless, because everyone with that password could enter all systems.

You can't remove it by taking out the battery, it's protected. The only way to take it out is to do an offline BIOS upgrade and that can be done only at a service.

Forgot bios password on a compaq presario 2100. is there anyway to get by it?


If you are familiar with dissembling and assembling laptops, that's not a big problem, since some laptops have bios battery attached. In this case just remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and reinsert the battery then all then there'll no more problem with the password. Or if you can do this at this juncture, you can try this article http://www.pwcrack.com/bios.shtml Good luck.. If this helps, please let me know.

Forgot power on password


Find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner.
Telephone COMPAQ. Once they verify that you are the rightful owner -- not a thief --- they can override the password.

Hey,

I supose you can't use the pc without the password?

You would loose all the data, you need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a a converter

http://www.shopaddonics.com/mmSHOPADDONICS/images/aa25ide35.gif

http://www.addonics.com/products/io/aa25ide35.asp

then plug it into your desktop pc.
and empty the drive totaly.

This can be done with formating it in windows or
useing the manufacturers tools.

if you need more assistance let me know
oh and can you use the laptop with the drivelock installed?
if you can use the laptop in windows you could probably somehow uninstall it.
