It is a bios password.. There should be a jumber pin to reset the password.. Do you know what the motherboard model # is? Or even the pc model number (if there has never been any changes to the hardware)?

Start up password


Hi Lisa,

You must be reffering to the BIOS password. The only way to get past this password prompt is to look for the instructions on how to clear the jumper for that particular computer on Google. It will require you opening the case and dealing with the Motherboard.

Good luck!

Computer is locked forgot pasword need help getting into the desktop


Hi bmtyra...

Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

Can not get past blue log in window enter my pasword but keeps asking for correct pasword .How can i get into control box to change user


Hi,
to solve the password problem there's a way you can try:
when you turn on the pc, after the bios info (just before the Windows start loading) press and hold "F8" key
It will appear a menu where you can choose to start in "safe mode"
the system will start and you see now that you can login with an user "administrator", usually there's no password so you can access and change your users' settings
If you can't solve this way you need a more complicated way: a software that recover lost passwords. Let me know what happen so I can suggest you some of them.
cheers

Resetting the password


There are two places when you may be asked for a password - can you please clarify which one it is.
  1. The BIOS password which will ask you for a password BEFORE you see the Windows loading screen
  2. The Windows password, which will ask you for the password after the computer has started, but before you can see your desktop.
There is a reasonably easy solution for both of these.

I FOR GOT MY PASS WORD AND USER NAME.WHAT DO I DO?


You can first try to boot the computer in "Safe Mode" (tap the F8 key when you first start the computer & you will be given the option to boot in safe mode)

When Windows starts in safe mode you will be given the option to use the Administrator account. Most of the time there is no pasword on this account , so it should take you right into Windows.

At that point you can goto the control panel and remove the password on your account!
