Have a nec computer cant get on it keeps asking for password and i dont have it it is a used cp i just got can you help wesley


Is it asking for the password before or after it boots into windows?

If it's the bios password, there is a jumper that can reset that. It's on the main board, but there are many possible locations for it. Also, it must be jumped and then un jumped with the power off. If you jump the wrong one, or power up with it jumped, you could fry the MB.

If it's a windows password, then you have to reinstall windows from scratch.

Or, you might try asking the original owner...

Unknown password for used apple


You didn't mention what type of Mac PC you got, so I'm going to assume it is one capable of running the OS X Operating system.

The best way that I know of to do this is to get an install disc for OS X. Start up the computer, Push and hold the <Apple> key on your keyboard, load the disc into the drive.

Pushing the Apple key during boot will bring up the boot menu. Tell it to boot from the CD/DVD drive.

This should start the install routine. Part way through the install it will ask you for what disc and directory to install to. Use the disc tools to tell it to format the hard drive and then choose that as your install destination.

The rest of the install should be fairly straight forward.

This will allow you to start with the Computer fresh and will clear the password from the system.

Hope this helps you,
Dave

Powermate ES setup cannot find hard drive


Do you have the recovery discs that originally came with the computer? If you do, I would use these to reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows. This would be the fastest option.

To do this:
Insert the disc into the CD-ROM
During boot-up and before the 'Use last known good configuration screen' you're speaking of, it'll ask you do 'hit a key to boot from CD' -- Do so
Follow the on-screen instructions. Your objective is to clean the hard drive completely (reformat) and reinstall windows (recover).

If you do not have the recovery disc that came with the computer, you can use the exact same steps above with a Windows XP disc. Be sure to 'format' and 'install' windows--not just 'repair.'

Re-boot computer when all finished.
