Question about Computers & Internet
If you forgot the system password it is hard to retrieve it. The best thing you can do is to clear the cmos and reset it to factory default.
There is a clear cmos jumper pins on your motherboard (usually located beside the battery). In older versions of motherboards, these are 3 pins but in newer versions there are only 2 pins. In the older versions of motherboards, the 2 pins have a jumper cap during normal operation, pins 1 and 2 are shorted (number 2 pin being in the center). In order for you to clear the cmos, all you have to do is short pin 2 and 3 for a few seconds using the same jumper cap or by using a screwdriver. After shorting the 2 pins, return the jumper cap to its original position.
In new motherboards, all you have to do is short the 2 pins for a few seconds. In normal operation, these 2 pins are open.
Please turn off your computer and unplug the power cord before clearing the cmos values.
