There is either a BIOS password, or hard drive password set. The only way to get in is by either using the correct password, OR, you must rest the BIOS.

Here is how to reset the BIOS. Turn the computer off. Open the case. Look on the mother board for a jumper marked JP1 on the board. It will have a black jumper that is either, on one of 2 pins, or on 2 of 3 pins. In any case, one pin will not be in the jumper.

If you have 2 pins, and the jumper is only on one of them, Put the jumper on both of a second, then put it back the way it was.

If you have 3 pins, and the jumper is on 2 of them. The 3 pins are in line. So take the jumper off and put it is on the pin that was not in the jumper, and the center pin for a second, then back the way it was.

The reset can also be a small dip switch which will also be marked JP1. If it is a dip switch, just switch it one way, then back the way it was.

This will reset the bios. **IMPORTANT** When you do this, it basically shorts the battery out causing the BIOS to loose its memory. That is how it resets. You must return it to the way it was before turning the computer back on or it will not boot.

Good luck.

My 9 year old computer is lock how do i unlock it if i forget his pass word


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account (click on switch account to log in). If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

Lost password


Hi hull,

Losing your Windows password can be one of the most frustrating experiences you encounter. With so many passwords to remember, it's a miracle our brains don't crash or need to be frequently defragmented. Fortunately, we aren't so hopeless and neither is losing your Windows password. Retrieving a lost Windows password is as simple as following a few easy steps
1Put your Windows XP operating system CD into your CD-Rom drive and start your computer.
Step2Choose the specified key to run from the CD. In most cases, a message will appear which instructs you to "Press any key to boot from CD." Step3Wait for Setup to check your system and load the appropriate files. A message will appear indicating this action. Step4Press "Enter" to setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement, then choose the "Repair" option on the Setup screen. Step5Allow the Repair function to complete its process. It may takes a few minutes for Setup to copy all of your files. Wait for the computer to reboot. Usually a message appears indicating that the computer will reboot in 10 to 15 seconds. Refrain from pressing any keys after the computer starts again. The computer will reboot automatically. Step6Watch the bottom left corner of your screen for the "Installing Devices" message. Press "Shift + F10" when you see this. A command console will appear allowing for access to a number of system functions. Step7Type "NUSRMGR.CPL" and press "Enter" after the prompt. This will give you graphical access to the User Accounts in your Control Panel. Step8Select the account that needs to be changed and alter your password or remove it altogether. Type "control userpasswords2" if you want to log on without using a password. Close the windows and exit the command console. Enter your Product ID when prompted. Step9Log on to your system according to the new password option you chose in Step 8. This process does not damage your previously saved files and settings, so they should still be intact. anaanymous

Locked key pad


How to Enter Unlock Codes on Motorola phones:
Switch ON your phone with a not allowed SIM Card,
Phone should show "Enter Special or Subsidy Code",
Enter unlock code
Your phone is now unlocked.
WARNING: if any of these messages appear :
- "Contact Service Provider"
- or "Tamper Alter"
- or "Wait Before Enter Special Code"
- or "Contact Service'
It's because you or somebody else has already entered too many wrong codes. You just have to leave the phone ON on the error message and after 1hr - 8hrs the message "Enter Subsity Password " will appear again!
Note: If your phone is on a 3G network enter **057*, then another window will appear to enter the unlock code.
