Try resetting the system BIOS.

There are three ways to do this, depending on the mainboard style.
Check for a jumper near the mainboard battery.
If there is one, and it is a three pin style, move the jumper from the side it is on to the other side, then turn the power on (generally it will spin up, but nothing will happen), and then back off. Replace the jumper as it was originally and boot the system.

If there is a two pin jumper, remove the jumper, turn the computer on (again, it will probably not do anything), then turn the computer off and replace the jumper and reboot.

If there is no jumper, remove the battery, turn the system on, then off, then replace the battery and reboot.

I want to break the password of windows server sp1. i using dual operating system, one is win xp,another one is win server 2003, i cant access to win server because i dont have password.


I think the best way for you is using shareware like windows password key if you have lost windows password.I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years and my favorite is the windows password key .This utility is used to reset password of any windows versions in seconds.
1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download windows Password key and install it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD or a USB flash drive.

2. Insert the newly created CD/USB drive to the locked computer.

3. Reboot the locked computer and press'F2'or'Delete'to enter your BIOS setup and then followed the process of instructions. Just a few steps, the old password was removed.

Reset password


Plug the phone in and allow it to boot up. Once the home screen is displayed, press and hold the 4, 6, 8, and * keys for about three seconds, or until you hear an audio alert and the phone asks you for a password. Enter 456 (default Admin password) and the phone will default itself. If the password has been changed, and 456 does not work, enter the MAC address of the phone as the password. Entering the MAC address of the phone will only reset the Admin password to the default, so it will probably be necessary to repeat this procedure, entering 456 the second time, to factory default the phone.
