You would want to make a note of all the settings especially the default gateway, proxy if any and dhcp etc before you perform a hard reset of your router.

Lost the password cannot login to the computer, what should we do?


It is normal that we forget something, especially a password which we set, and do not use it often it evaporates! How to handle such a situation?

Let us understand the different type of passwords we use.
1. BIOS / System setup password
2. Windows password
3. Wireless access password (passkey)
4. Router log in password
5. File level Password (used when we compress / zip a file or when we create a word or excel file)
6. Password for our email
7. Hard drive password (some laptops have this feature)

Let us see how to tackle when we loose any such passwords one by one.

1. BIOS / System setup password:
This is saved in the flash memory present on the motherboard.

If you forget this we can reset it by using the Clear CMOS settings jumper present on the motherboard. We have to refer to the user manual of the motherboard or the computer for locating this jumper.

If this is set to your laptop, you will have trouble especially if your computer is out of warranty, since only the manufacturers can help you reset a laptop system setup / BIOS password. Write a mail to them, about the situation.

2. Windows password:
This is saved in the hard drive (of course encrypted)

If this is set in windows XP, try pressing CTRL+ALT+Del twice in the login screen. Type administrator in the username box and do not type anything in the password box (usually administrators / system installation technicians forget to give an administrator password.) and hit enter, if you can login successfully you can reset the password from this account. If this does not work there are still ways to bypass it for that you need expert advice, contact us.

If this is setup in Windows Vista / Windows 7 you need to have your Vista / Win 7 installation DVD and some expert advice and we can help you.

3. Wireless access password (passkey):
If you forget your wireless passkey, you have to refer to the router / access point manual and log in to the router page (before login, that requires another password - refer to your manual, defaults will be there) and there you can either see the passkey or change it to a new passkey.


4. Router log in password:
If you have changed the router log in password, refer to the manual again on how to reset the router / access point, usually with a small button present at the back panel of the router. (be aware that all your router settings will be changed to factory settings and if you have other computers that are working fine that will also not connect to internet unless you reconfigure it)

5. File level Password:
If you have set a password while creating a word or excel file or while you zip it, I would recommend not to forget it. Some of them can be recovered but not always

6. Password for our email:
If your forget the password for your email then click on the forgot password link and answer to the questions which you have set while signing up for the email, the password will be reset or sent to another email. If you have not set such questions log in to day to your email account and set up those questions.

7. Hard drive password:
This password feature is available in certain laptop models. (be careful when you buy second hand / old laptop hard drives if this password was set you hard drive will not work untill you give this password.) This password can be reset by the respective manufacturer of the computer in which this hard drive was shipped / configured.


So do not panic when you get into such situations, read through the above options and contact us for additional help.

Reset bios password


Hi, its very easy to reset password for bios.

You have two methods to rest on two different conditions.

First if you want to re-set in normal mode and a second thing if you have forgotten the password.

First of all enter into Bios Setup then Security and Reset your password.

Second if you have forgotten your password and you need to reset without power on your computer take these steps;

1. Uncover your computer
2. See a jumper near to hard connector. This jumper sets on two legs total of three and one leg free.
3. Changer jumper side ... It sets on free leg and then one leg will free.
4. Now, starts on your computer, it will give you a message. Now follow the message and accept changes for Bios and press enter.
5. Once again switch off your computer.
6. Reset jumper on the same place and cover your computer again.
7. Start your computer enter into Bios without any password. Now you can set your password from security tab again.

Wish you Good Luck

I need help with my password


If someone has "hacked" your password, they would have changed it so you cannot access the device. The only recourse you have is to do a hard reset on the device to reset the username and password to the factory defaults. Routers have, usually in the back, an opening that you can insert a paper clip or toothpick and reset the device. You usually have to hold it in, with power applied, from 10-30 seconds, depending on the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this will reset ALL the settings of the router, requiring a complete setup process after the hard reset. This is probably a good idea, especially since the "hacker" probably changed some settings to his/her advantage, otherwise there would have been no need for the hack in the first place. After resetting, choose a longer and much harder to guess username/password. Best options include a mix of numbers/letters/symbols, both upper and lower case.

Is there a way to bypass a bios password?


If you set your BIOS password but have forgotten what it is, then the simplest way to reset it is to remove the BIOS battery. You need to be somewhat technically proficient to do so, especially if it's the BIOS on a laptop you want to reset. Some machines have a BIOS reset button on the back of them to reset the BIOS after a failed overclock, but I've never seen such a function on a laptop. You may also try typing in "Toshiba" as your BIOS password if that's the make of your laptop as it's been use a backdoor BIOS password in the past.

When i power on the laptop ask HDD PASSWORD SIR PLZ HOW CAN I REMOVE SIR


How to remove and unlock hard drive password? Is there any software to recover hard drive disk password? Where to download hard drive password cracker? Is it possible to reset the hard drive password?
According to Lenovo and many other manufacturers' website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.

Compaq presario r 30000 need to bypass power on password    password is not working . need to restore to factory setting


Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.

Can't log into my router


No there is not a way to just change the password on these devices. If you have changed the password from the default and either forgot it ,or fat fingered it upon entry then you will need to do a hard reset which resets everything. However the config's on these are so simple it shouldn't take longer than 10 min to reconfigure it, especially if you have good documentation!
