Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Systemax Laptop, gift.........changed password, forgot password! Need to restore, but PC wont let without administrator authorization. Anyone have idea to restore to prior settings?
Are you talking about the operating system admin password, or the bootup CMOS settings password(s). If it is windows, you can find the administrative password by downloading one of the freeware utilities at this link:
If it is the CMOS password, you can reset it by removing the coin battery on the motherboard on the laptop (this can be *very* tricky depending on the laptop make/model)
