It won't help to take out the battery since in some areas, the bios keeps the settings. It's not really tricky, but you do have to go into a maintenance mode in the bios in the GT5428. First, unplug the computer. Unscrew the two thumbscrews on the back of the case and slide the case open. Lay it on its side, front toward you so you can see the motherboard. If you position yourself with your eyes above the hard drive bay and look toward the front edge of the motherboard, you'll see two sets of jumper pins. One is a set of three with nothing attached. If you look rearward about 1/8" and slighly over to the left, you'll see a rather tall jumper on another set of three pins. In my system the shorting jumper is tan colored. It's covering the center and right pin by default. That's the bios' operating position. Remove this jumper and place it on the left and center pins. Plug in your computer and turn it on (make sure you have the keyboard and monitor attached, of course). Enter the maintenence menu and clear the bios passwords...save settings if necessary (F10 | Y). You will be prompted on the display to place the jumper back on the default pins. Turn the computer off, unplug the power again...and set the jumper back to the default position. Put it back together and hopefully you'll have a working system once again.

You could try booting into safe mode, (tapping F8 during bootup) and you might have Administrator on the logon screen if not, try hitting ctrl alt delete twice on the logo screen to get an old style logon screen,
type administrator as the username.
you can change your password in control pannel as usual

Forgot password


Password to what/where?
There should be a "Forgot your password?" or "Can't access your account?" or "Need help?" or similar link on the sign-in page.

I forget my Facebook password


Just go to the FB login, put in your username and underneath where you enter your password, click on "I forgot my password" it will take you to a page where you can request the password to be reset and sent to you. Actually it sends it to the email address that is linked to the user profile. This is how they stop people from hacking into other people's accounts.

Asking for password before system. Boots


Maybe you forgot the pass or some users put pass on your system or account..You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.
goodluck and hope this helps.pls rate ..thanks
