Hello,

You need to shut it down and remove the power cord. Press and hold the power ON button for about 5 seconds.

Open the case to the computer and do one of 2 things:

1) Pop out the CMOS battery which is about the size of a quarter and is usually a 3 volt battery. Leave it out for several minutes, then reinsert it in the slot. Close the case and connect the power cord. Power up and then you will have to enter the BIOS, verify your settings and do a Save and Exit. This will eliminate the password prompt. (Note:Different computers use different keys to get into the BIOS. It is usually an F key or the Delete key. Watch for the message as it boots.)

OR...

2) Most motherboards have a jumper labeled CLR or RESET. There are 3 pins together with a jumper on 2 of the pins. If the jumper is on pins 1 and 2, remove it and place it on pins 2 and 3 for 15 seconds. Then remove it and place it back on pins 1 and 2. Replace the cover, power up and again, enter the BIOS and verify your settings and do a Save and Exit.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    It just occured to me that you may mean a Windows password. If so, ignore the previous post. That is for BIOS passwords.

Need to bypass main password to enter computer


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

I can't gey into my big fish acc., first i coundn't remember my password, but then i found it and it still won't work . What's the deal?


Try the password for more times.

And if you really can't rememeber it, you should reset it.As far as I know, Windows Password Reset is a great tool to reset windows password, just need 3 simple steps to do.

Step1:Download and install Windows Password Reset
Step2:Burn Windows Password Reset ISO file to CD/DVD,or USB.
Step3:Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows Password.

Hope it work for you.

Just need to know how to unlock it. I purchased it and it has a password need. can you tell me how to open/bypass this?


What model is it?
Where or when exactly is it asking for the password?
It could either be a BIOS, hard drive or Windows password. Can you be more specific?

Most, if not all, Compaq Presario notebooks have a recovery function that can be accessed by pressing EITHER F10 or F11 (depending on the model) when you power the machine up.

This will revert the computer back to factory settings, deleting all files currently on it, including Windows passwords. If you have files on it & it's asking for a Windows password, there are other ways to bypass it without deleting files.

It should work unless it's a BIOS or hard drive password that's preventing you from using it. Should that be the case, the password may have been put on there at the store where it was bought or the previous owner, if applicable. You may have to contact them if the recovery fails or cannot be accessed because of said password.
