Hi,

If you are referring to doing a reset on the motherboard of a desktop computer, you need to move the CMOS jumper inside and on the motherboard itself pretty near the Lithium battery. If you could post back the brand & model of your PC or at least the motherboard, a more precise description as to where it is located could be forwarded.

If you are referring to the Operating System itself, it could be done in 2 ways:
1. Do a System Restore to the earliest date available; or
2. Use your recovery CDs and do a clean fresh install. Alternately, you can boot from the OS installer CD and repartition and reformat your hard drive. This of course would erase all personal settings and any and all of your documents, files, pictures and other applications and programs previously installed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to find computer password quickly that I forgot computer password? Can anyone help me reset forgotten computer password? Any helps will be appreciated! - Now check the following ways on reset lost computer password!

Firstly, use password prompt function on password locked computer
If you have set the prompt option when you set account password, it may help you remember something about your forgotten computer password!


Secondly, reset computer password with default administrator account Once we install Windows OS, there will be automatically generated an "Administrator" account with blank password. Therefore, if we forgot password on computer, we can have a try:
a. Boot system, and press Ctrl + Alt + Del keys twice when the Windows login screen comes up.
b. At the Classic Login window, input: Administrator and keep Password box null. Then press Enter key to login.
c. Recover computer password by: Control Panel - User Accounts.

Thirdly, find computer password with computer password reset disk If we created this computer password reset disk before we forgot password, we can opt for the disk to help us unlock password efficiently.
a. Click OK and close the message box on the password incorrect prompt window.
b. Click "Reset Windows Password" and insert the password reset disk.
c. Do as the "Password Reset Wizard" to create a new password.

Fourthly, change computer password with Windows Installation Disc Take computer Windows XP as example:
a. Start computer using Windows XP Setup CD.
b. When it asks to repair our current Windows installation, choose "Accept" it and press "R" to run the repair. Then computer will begin to repair our Windows and copy files to hard drive.
c. Setup will reboot system. Please don't press any key when there is "Press any key to continue..."
d. Now computer will do other tasks and there will be a progress bar displayed. Please notice carefully the details shown at the bottom of screen.
e. Once "Installing Devices" comes up, press keys: Shift+F10. Input: nusrmgr.cpl and press Enter key at the Command Prompt window.
f. The same "User Accounts" window will display as it is in Control Panel. Choose "Administrator account" and select any account listed to change or remove your computer password.

Fifth, break computer password by DIY a password recovery disk If the above four methods still can't help us reset lost computer password, we can refer to this way now. DIY a password reset disk after forgotten computer password means that we burn an .iso image file from Windows password recovery software into a bootable CD/DVD/USB disk. Now, take one of the top-rated Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
a. Download and install Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery Corporation in any accessible computer (not from computer you want to unlock)
b. Burn an ISO image file to CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive
c. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and set the BIOS Setting for CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.
d. Reset forgotten computer password to default Re123456.


The above ways on forgotten computer password reset are the collections of best bet for us to unlock lost computer password! So even if we forgot computer password, things will be OK soon!

Describe your VAIO E Series 2.26GHz Intel Core i3-350M Notebook - VPCEA23EN Problem WHEN I SWITCH IT ON IT SAYS OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND


Hi.

Based on the information you have provided it seems that the issue might be due to the Operating System files.

Hence, as a first step, it would be better to reset the BIOS to its default values.

Please follow the steps mentioned in the below link to reset the BIOS:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C94679

After performing the BIOS reset, please reset the Computer for the settings to take effect.

Performing the BIOS reset should resolve the issue.

If the issue still persists even after performing a BIOS reset, it is required to restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will re-install the Operating System and delete all the Data in the Computer..

Hence, it is required to backup all the important Data before re-installing the Operating System.

Please follow the steps mentioned in the below link to restore the Computer to the Factory settings:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1008013

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to contact for further assistance.
