Question about Computers & Internet
If you are referring to the "power-on" password (the password to unlock your system), power off your PC, disconnect all cables, remove the cover and remove the silver, coin-shaped battery for 10 minutes. That should remove the power -on password. Insert the battery again and reassemble.
If you are referring to the login password or account password, there is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.
1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in “Administrator” in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password
Hope this helps
