Cannot perform administrator tasks. It asks for a password and I never set one.


If it is asking for a password then it must have been set during setup!

The only way is to reinstall the windows 7 and make sure password is not set!

How did I reset my HDD password on my gateway M405?


When you first turn on your system there should be a message at the bottom for you to choose an "F" key to enter BIOS. When you push that "F" key and enter BIOS choose the tab that says system. When you do the USER, HDD and Admin password will pop up. Choose the HDD and click enter. IT will ask for a password, dont type anything just simply click enter, and when it asks to retype the password push enter again. What this does is let the BIOS know it is a "CLEAR" password and lets it know not to ask for one. After you do that choose the "F" key that allows you to exit and save. Your system will re boot and will no longer should ask for a password to your HDD.

Upon powering on the system won't go past the boot


> problem with barebone system
> asks for a password in the Setup

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Look on the motherboard for three pins in a row, with a jumper between #1 and #2.
Move that jumper to connect #2 and #3. Count to ten.
Move that jumper back to #1 and #2.
The motherboard has been reset to its "factory" settings, i.e., NO password.
Connect the AC power.
Turn the computer on.
Press <DEL> to enter Setup.
It should NOT ask for a password.

It ask for a user name and pasword


This could be a Windows password or a system password or both. If you don't have the Windows password and the former owner can't tell you what it is, you might have to erase the disk, reinstall Windows and thus solve the problem. A System password is a theft protection that can only be changed if you know the password. It is embedded in the laptop hardware. Ask the former owner what the password is, otherwise there is no solution but to ask Dell Service.

I bought this toshiba satellite m20 in an auction. its asking for an administrator password. HOw can i remove the password?


Is the BIOS asking for a password or is Windows asking for a password? If it's the BIOS then you might never get the password off. Seldom can you remove the password from a laptop's BIOS without already knowing the password. If it's Windows that's asking for the password, then try reinstalling your operating system. This will get rid of the password and anything else that may be lurking around in the computer from the previous owner.

Dell Inspiron 6400, asking for HDD password


Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one

Thanks and regards

Kindly rate this solution
