So is your password blank?? or have you changed it to something you cant rememeber? did you create a restore disk (no one really does this so will be surprised if you have) you can try a password change boot disk (search online for this) but can't guarantee this method.

How to change the root password in Linux


You need to boot the machine into runlevel 1. This will reboot into a secured shell and allow you to run passwd. This will in turn allow you to set the password for the root account.

To get into runlevel 1, either type telinit 1 in a terminal or command prompt on a Linux machine, or reboot the machine and do the following:

When the splash screen for the OS appears hit F12. This should take you to the grub bootloader. Highlight the entry for the kernel version you are using and press "e". This will allow you to edit this entry. At the end of the line just add the "1" character to it and save the changes and boot into that kernel. The OS should boot directly to a command prompt. At this time you should be the root user. Simply run passwd and enter in a new password, reboot the machine and log in as root using the password you just entered.

My daughter has left for college, she has forgotten the password on the computer she left at home and now it is asking for a password to get into windows xp/professional. Help


XP-(all versions) have a base 'Administrator' account that is already installed. This account can be used to change the password on the account created when XP was installed. By default this account does not have a password.

Boot into Safe Mode. This is done by pressing F8 repeatedly during start-up, until the 'advanced boot options' menu appears. Using the 'up or down arrow' keys, select "Safe Mode" and press [Enter]

Depending on the ver XP you have, you may have to ctl-alt-del to log in, but likely you will see the 'welcome screen' (blue) and the Administrator acct icon, as well as the other User account in question. Select the Administrator account.
[if someone has set a password for this account, then you will need to take it to a local repair shop for reset. I don't charge for this service but some might.]

Once at the desktop, press [Start] then go to 'control panel' and select User Accounts (you may have to choose 'classic view'.)

from there you select the User account you wish to change and go from there.

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

After boot, appears ENTER PRIMARY MASTER HDD USER Password i need the password @ solution to boot up my lappy... thanks


How Do I Change the Primary Master HDD User Password?

Prior to loading an operating system, your computer will first execute the BIOS program. The BIOS has an extra password feature, called the hard disk drive (HDD) user password, that can't be bypassed and provides a layer of defense to keep your data secure. To change an existing HDD user password you will have to load the BIOS menu, which is only accessible during the computer's operating system reboot procedure.

Instructions

1. Close any windows that are currently open on your computer. Eject any discs inserted into the optical drive and disconnect any peripheral USB devices.

2. Open the "Start" menu and select "Shut Down." Turn on your computer once the operating system finishes shutting down.

3. Press the key your computer uses to load the BIOS menu. For example, with Dell computers tap "F2" when the "Press F2 for Setup" option appears. Press the "Access IBM" key on IBM laptops or "F10" on HP desktops.

4. Navigate to the BIOS tab that contains the HDD password option, which will usually be the "Security" tab. Some computer manufactures instead include the password option in the "Advanced" tab.

5. Scroll down to the option labeled either "User Password" or "BIOS lock" and hit "Enter." Type the current master HDD user password when the prompt appears and press "Enter."

6. Input a new HDD user password and hit "Enter" again. Navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Exit" or something similar.

7. Move over to the "Save and Exit" entry and press "Enter." Select "Yes" and tap "Enter."
