Cant open my HP Compac laptop because the password cant activate


If you haven't change any of the security parameters on the laptop, the default is a 30 minute wait before it resets/unlocks the account. If that doesnt work you can use a program called WINTernals that will allow you to change/reset the password.

I have a hp nc6120 had a head injury for got my password


As for the power-on password, you'll need to find a way to jump the CMOS battery, or invest in a new laptop.
Once you lock out the BIOS, the computer will not run any bit of hardware, unless you jump the battery and reset to factory settings.
If you somehow manage to do that, next thing you'll need to do is find a program that will boot from a CD to remove the password on your account.
I recommend using the Hirens BootCD to do this, as it also has many utilities that will help maintain your computer.

Reset bios password


Most laptops do not have one and clearing the cmos will not help.

Contact HP, they have a master password that can get you in. You may have to fax them proof of ownership to get them to help. I had to do this on a laptop.

Hope this helps
