How do i erase my forgotten password as i want to sell my laptop


I would sell it without the hdd. A new hdd is available for a small amount nowadays or take it to a reputable dealer who will remove the password for you at a reasonable fee.
I charge 30 GBPounds and would expect proof of ownership before I would remove the password.

TE2100 ASKING ME PASSWORD AT POWER ON


If your notebook asking you a password while you turn it on, probably someone is set your basic input output system(bios) configured to prompt for a password. There are two ways to clear your systems password 1. is you have to guess for the password 2. you have to clear the cmos or bios settings by removing your cmos battery from your motherboard for about 10 seconds. Then put it back again then on your computer. That's all have a nice day!
