It is simple turn off your pc.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.

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?

Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.

Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.

Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

I forgot my password so i cant get in wat can i do?

If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP
- or this for Vista/Win7
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD

Forgot my password for my hp pavilion dv7 administator account

If your account name is only administrator, then you have to get the Ultimate bootable CD, boot from it, it will just boot like a normal xp, then right click on my computer, go to manage, select user & accounts, select the user name, right click on that, select set password, let it be empty, click OK, then done.

But if your account name is other name with administrator privilege then at the time of login keep on pressing the ctrl+alt+del, then in the user name delet the name & type administrator then press ok it will enter inside. To reset your password ight click on my computer, go to manage, select user & accounts, select the user name, right click on that, select set password, let it be empty, click ok, then done.

Need polarity of adapter plug for HP Pavilion DV6500

The cables for these are fairly specific, but if you have a cbale that has the same plugs and fits both the transformer side and the computer side, you cna use that as a replacement. The cord itself has no polarity.
Are you looking to do something else here?

Cant log on forgot user account password for hp pavilion zd8000

Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.

If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).

Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.

Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.

See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.

If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.

If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.

Password trouble

If you are talking about BIOS Password which is being asked when you try to access any feature of the BIOS, I am sorry, it is not possible to retrive.

However, if it is the Startup Password which is prompted to enter immideatly you start the Notebook, you can try removing and replacing the CMOS/RTC/BIOS Battery.

1) Turn off the Notebook and remove the Battery and Power Adapter.

2) Follow the instructions to remove the BIOS Battery provided in page number 125 of 310 in the manual :

Start the Notebook with the CMOS battery removed with the power adapter and turn it off once you see the HP logo.

Remove the Power adapter and insert back the CMOS Battery and fix the door that covers it.

You should be able to go ahead with no issues.

If you are talking about Login Password after booting into the Operating System, it may not be possible untill you are not using the Administrator account.

Press hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will get a window in which you need to enter the Administrator as the User name and Enter the password if you have set any....leave the Password column blank if you have not assigned any administrator password.

Once you are loged in, reset the password of the account which you are unable to login to.

Find more information about managing user accounts in XP :

Managing User Accounts in Vista :

Hope this information is useful.
