Just want to clear things. Do you mean entering the BIOS setup is asking for the password?

If that's what you mean, then there's no other way of knowing what's the BIOS password is. However, you can reset the BIOS by opening your computer tower and look for the CMOS battery, take it out for a few seconds then put it back in, it should restore the BIOS to default and password should be no longer an option to enter the BIOS.

Setup is locked, hoekan ik het unlocken om een verse window xp te installeren


OK ..you have several options ...First ..try to open it up ..and remove the bios battery from the main board..remember to also remove any other power source ..and place the battery back after 30 seconds..This will clear the bios settings and also the password..
If this will not work , you can try to fool the system by inserting the disk ..and start without the hard disk on ..It will take teh next option and will boot from the disk ..and you have to plug the hard disk on immediately ..It may work ..
If the password will be removed by removing battery ..than all you have to do is press f12 for boot menu and start from the disk and install .

Another way is to start windows installation from teh previous windows ..Just open the disk and click set-up ..or install windows..it will start from windows and after loading primary files will restart and continue normal ..
the last option is to remove the hard disk and install a clean operation system in another computer and place it back ..
it will work just fine ..but you will need all drivers for your computer to be installed manually and will also need to be made from a boot-able disk ..and not from recovery ..
Anyway ..try the battery removal and let me know what goes on ..and after that we'll see ..
please try to use English ..even if it is not very good...I will try to understand..

When my acer aspire 9300 laptop is turned on it says password i dont no what it is can u help


Well, I am providing you four tips which you can consider to recover Windows administrator password if your forgot or lost it:

TIP 1 - Use password reset disk

Windows-based system was designed to be able to create windows password reset disk without any other third party tools. So you can make use of a password reset disk to reset your Windows password in case you lose or forget your Windows password.

TIP 2 - Restore the operating system

Windows password recovery can be performed by restoring the operating system. Since restoration leads to data deletion, the solution can only work if you have a clean and updated backup of your hard drive data stored somewhere else.

TIP 3 - Use Windows Boot disk

The boot CD for Windows can be used to reset the administrator password. This disk enables you to repair Windows OS, thereby, setting your administrator password as blank.

TIP 4 - Use password recovery software

This is considered as the best windows password recovery solution, however, is to download a third party software. These tools enable you to reset Windows administrator password without posing any threat to your hard drive data. Among so many password recovery software, windows Password Recovery 6.0 is an easy-to-employ application which can be used to reset lost or forgotten password of any Windows system. Now execute the following steps to recover your lost windows password if you haven't prepared anything.

Step1: Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download Windows Password Recovery from

http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html and install it on that PC.

Note that: there is an .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD/DVD or a USB flash drive

Step2: Get out the newly created CD/USB and insert it to the locked computer.

Step3: re-booted the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your computer's Setup to make it boot from CD drive or USB drive) and then followed the process of instructions. Just a few steps, the old passwords were removed.

Step4: logon PC without password and setting the new password

Forgotten Admin password on Dell Inspiron 9400


If you have lost or forgot your password then assuming that your Operating System is Windows you can find many freeware software on internet to download which can crack your password and open your windows most of the time without any data loss or software corruption. The good part is that you do not have to format or reinstall your operating system.
I will recommend you this software download from the following site

http://www.recoveranypassword.com/recover/windows-password-recovery/

Copy paste this link in your Browser and download the software on another computer. This software will make you a boot able CD/DVD after that you mount this disk on CD/DVD drive on your Dell Inspiron 9400 and allow your computer to boot from it. If the computer is not booting from the CD/DVD. Restart your system and start pressing "F2" and "Del" keys to enter BIOS setup once there change the boot priority order to CD/DVD drive so that the disk boots before the Windows in your hard drive. Once your computer loads the software in the CD/DVD you can break the password and enter the windows. The general procedure for password recovery is the same as I have described above. If you face any problem with the software I am recommending you. You can have another software that suites your taste by searching through Google or any other Search engine. As I have said the procedure remains pretty much the same.

Good Luck!

Want to get rid of OS selection screen


Hi there.
First of all delete any passwords that protect the account and any users that you don't want (not your own)
Then, Right click on my computer and select "properties" tab, then you want the advanced tab and then "startup and recovery" tab and then the "edit" tab. You should see something like this >>>
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

It should look like this so delete the second string and save:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Restart the PC and it should boot straight into windows

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
