You could try start in safe mode by holding f8 key on start up, if this fails just power the pc down while it is booting up and on restart you should get the option to start in safe mode, then instead of your user name it should say administrator, click on this and hope the password for the upper level administrator has not been set (which it often isnt unless you specifically go and do this), hopefully you will then be able to get in your computer and go and reset the passwords, if you have set the upper level admin password then you will need a usb stick and install a password cracker which will delete your password, there will be info on youtube on how to do this

SOURCE: resetting the password

There are two places when you may be asked for a password - can you please clarify which one it is.

  1. The BIOS password which will ask you for a password BEFORE you see the Windows loading screen
  2. The Windows password, which will ask you for the password after the computer has started, but before you can see your desktop.
There is a reasonably easy solution for both of these.

SOURCE: Hi my name is Zack

If your lost password isn't pizza or whatever and is after the BIOS startup routine, try this:


Lost user password in XP with networking setup on HP

The best way to do this is using the Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link:

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.

If it is the BIOS password, disconnect the cmos battery for half an hour or so then you can start again with no password.
Hope this helps.

When you think you can bypass the password why then install one? In the worst case you could try to reset it to factory settings, but then you will lose all data on it. If you have a good recent backup I would advice to do that.

My daughter recently enabled the password that she entered when she set up the EEEPC over a month ago. Unfortunately she doesn't remember what that password was! Now it boots no farther than the enter...

try F2 you didnt say whether it was set in the bios or in the initial configuration pages.
However a F9 whilst booting takes you to restore the factory settings(every other boot) goto restore factory settings--press "E"-- choose restore image--press "B"-- then try to reconfigure the first few pages of the initialising programs,date,time,location etc.
