    Did you purchase the computer from a private party or from a computer store. Also, is the pasword comming up durring the boot up part of the start up or is it when you get to the users? If you purchased from a computer store contact the store and make arangements to return the computer to the store and A. get a new computer or B. have them remove the pasword. If you purchased from a private party then contact the person you purchased the computer from and ask them to either reset the pasword for you or to give you the pasword.

Also, if neither of those solutions work you can usually take it to a repair center and they can remove the password for you. I know that Best Buy's Geek Squad will only charge you 29.00 USD to remove a password.

I bought a windows xp home ed laptop the ppl I bought it from forgot the password I caint get pass boot password what shouls I do?


To get past a boot password you will need to reset the bios. On your motherboard, inside the case there is a little battery. You will need to remove that for 5 minutes and then reinsert. This will reset the Bios to factory settings, removing the password and any other changes. Have a great day.

Asking for password sata port pass


This is a "security" feature, to protect the files on the disk-drive from unauthorized access.

The computer supports "full-disk" encryption of each disk-drive inside your computer.

So, what password did you set when you first initialized this disk-drive?

If you don't know it, there's nothing you can do -- all the files on the disk-drive are _NOT_ accessible to you.

Can't remember pass word to get on and we have a new lap top and its asking for a password.


hi welcome to fixya! if your talking about your internet router, the common username and password which the manufacturer usually used is...
username: admin
password: admin

and if it is about your laptop... well... better seeing that person in whom you've bought that laptop and ask the password... or ask for assistance at any service center near you. I'm sure they would love to help you. have a nice day!

I dont remember password


In order to know your password you have to:

1) Use some program to reveal the pass
2) Get access to your router

To get access to your router do this

1) Open your browser
Type .......
http://192.168.0.1


user = admin
pass= (blank) no password

hit enter



Once inside go to Wireless and see which is your WEP password

That's it

If your wireless router have a different pass than default you need to reset the router

If you have an Win XP installation disk simply insert on the drive, turn off and turn on the computer and run the win XP installation.

If you only want to get rid the password go to there:
