Hi,

It is simple turn off your laptop.Restart and press the F8 key repeatedly until you get a menu that has an option to go into safe mode. Select the relevant option number then press enter.
Then it wont ask you for any password,just go to control panel>user accounts>add or remove user account,here change your password or remove it. Thats it you are done,shut it down and thn restart it and at your welcome screen enter da new pass.

Goodluck,

How to access startup forgot password?


Hi

If you mean your BIOS password you will need to remove the battery and then remove the case from your laptop to access the main board, there will be a battery on there that holds the setting when powered off, remove this leave out for 2 mins replace and then put back together and power up, your BIOS should now have no password so you can access the settings again.

Forgot startup password for vizio desktop


Hi Karra, Start your mac. Insert the install disc that came with the mac and press Restart. As soon as the window goes black push and hold the c-key untill the Apple sign appears. Loading could take a couple of minutes so be patient.
After a while a screen to choose your language. After that the Installer appears to install the Operating System. Avoid this. On top you see several pop-up menu's. Click the far right one and you'll see Change password You can reset a new password here. Hope this works. Good luck.

Forgot password


Hello,

On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

Forgot startup password


For the Windows password you will need to reformat your hard drive. If that would not be done or if there is another way of removing the password without removing and reinstalling the operating system or of using your laptop by working around, windows password does not make sense at all. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Bios/startup password


yes, it will still be charged, to reset the bios password you need to locate the cmos battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so, but where exactly the battery is situated, i'm not sure.
