Re: Power-on password

Call Compaq - if you are the original owner they can help you.

If not then the machine needs to be completely disassembled and there is a chip on the motherboard than can be shorted or replaced to bypass it - but you are looking at a couple hundred dollars to do so for labor.

How to Bypass Windows Password With Ease?

Nowadays, it comes a common sense to add a BIOS or Windows password for laptop protected. Thus, a feasible advice is to create a Windows password disk in case that you forgot Windows password. But without Windows password reset disk, what should we do in order to bypass Windows password?

It's time to learn how to bypass Windows password with the following two tips and tricks.

Method 1: Bypass Windows password by Safe Mode with Command Prompt

According to Wiki, Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer Operating System (OS), a special way for Windows to load when a system-critical problem interfering with normal operation of Windows. If you are not able to boot your computer in normal mode or supposed your notebook is infected with Trojans or malware, you are able to get rid of them with Safe Mode. Furthermore, it is easier and safer to bypass Windows password in Safe Mode when you lost or forgot Windows password.

Take Windows 7 for example: there are 3 different types of safe mode: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Below is a guide on how to bypass Windows 7 password with Safe Mode with Command Prompt, which allows you to bypass Windows password with command line. Detailed steps are as follow:

Step 1. Boot or reboot your Windows 7 computer.
Step 2. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.
Step 3. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt in the coming screen, then Press Enter.
Step 4. Wait for Windows 7 files to load until Windows login screen comes up.
Step 5. Log in with an administrator account when you see logon screen.
Step 6. A Command Prompt appears.Type net user in the Command Prompt and then hit Enter. All Windows user account names will be listed for you.
Step 7. Type net user 'Alina 123' and hit Enter.
Step 8. The new password has been successfully reset when the command is completed successfully.
Step 9. Log on your PC with the new password.

Note: 'Alina' is your locked Windows user account name. And '123' means the new password you want to reset for the locked account.
Whenever you need to log on to Safe Mode, an administrator account password is necessary. So it is highly recommended you to write Windows password down and sotre it or creating a Windows password recovery disk before lost/forgot Windows password.

Method 2: Bypass Windows password with Windows Password Unlocker

However, if you haven't created a password reset disk and forgot all administrator account password, it's better for you to bypass Windows 7 password with Windows password reset software. These reset software allow you to bypass Windows passwordwith a USB flash drive or bootable CD/DVD. Windows Password Unlocker Professional is one of the best choice to reset or change Windows password in a while.

Go through with these steps and recover Windows password with ease!
Step 1. Download Windows Password Unlocker Professional and install it in any computer.
Step 2. Run the program and burn an ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 3. Start your locked computer from the bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 4. bypass Windows password successfully.
Of course, there are some other methods of bypassing Windows 7 password. Picking up a suitable and efficient one to bypass Windows password is a necessity.

I need a power on password or to bypass this..i have a compaq evo n600c laptop,please help me

Press F2 button (repeatedly and fast) right after pressing power on. That will take you into the BIOS setup. BE CAREFUL IN THERE. Don't make changes unless you absolutely know what they will do. Read the screen (top or bottom) for instructions on button navigation through menus (the mouse/trackpad will not work in BIOS mode). Then look for the ''Password'' screen and navigate to that screen selection. If found, change from ''enable'' to ''disable.'' If it requires the password to make that change, then you are stuck (sorry).

If this problem _is_ in your BIOS, it means either you bought this computer used and whoever sold it to you owes you either a password or a refund. Or, if this has been your computer for some time, then someone played a nasty trick on you by enabling this feature inside the BIOS when you were not around. If so, find said person and wring neck for password.


Ps... You can also try a ''Password Bypass Boot Disc'' either on sale at ebay, or various web sites. Or download the ISO of such a disc online and burn it to CD yourself. (Don't pay more than $10 for such a pre-made disc). Note that such discs will not solve the problem if it is in fact inside the BIOS (which I really think yours is). These discs are for the ''Windows User Account'' password. And again, your screen looks very much like a BIOS password to me.

Good luck.

Black screen ask for password

Black screen with "Enter Password" in blue box. - BIOS password.
To reset: take the CMOS battery out then place it back again.

Black screen with Enter password in the upper right left corner - could be hard disc password.,
If you set up the password before, you can only bypass that by entering the correct password. If not, it will render the hard disc useless.
