you can solve the problem easily,

first unplug the power supply to the cabinet (CPU). you need to open the case of the CPU (the cabinet) , for that unscrew the screws at the left side of your cabinet, now you can see the motherboard, in it there is a small button sized battery called the CMOS battery which powers the PROM, in which the password is stored. you need to take out the battery from the motherboard and put it back after 2 minutes. cover the cabinet. start the system, it should work fine.(no need for any password)

by removing and re-inserting the CMOS battery you actually erases any user customization in the BIOS, and loads it with the defaults

I bought a ph laptop from a friend n when I turn it on it goes to a page that says enter administrator password or power on password what do I do

Ask your friend for the passwords. If it is asking you for them, then I guess it would have asked them as well. Once you are up and running you can change it for your own password.

I need to reset our Starfish Facebook password so we can access our account. It was under but she has left and we don't know her password. Please email me instructions t

Hi Judith (as a guess!)

You can reset the password if you have access to the email account used in setting up the Facebook account (probably chloe's - did she have a 'starfish' email account?) if you can access this it should be easy to try logging into Facebook and then clicking the "forgotten password" link, should then send you an email to reset the password.

If you don't have this I am not sure how you can reset (can you still contact chloe and ask her... Might be the easiest way)

I have forgotten my password for my apple i pod how do i access it

You will have to either guess the password or re-set it and recover it. To reset it hold the sleep and home buttons until it shuts off and on again. When it loads it should show the 'connect to itunes' picture.. connect it to itunes and recover it from there.

If it's asking for password right after swich on than it should be a bios password, in that case try turning off the laptop and removeing the battery for 1-2 hours to reset CMOS settings, on some modells under the cpu there is a hole, try to push the button in it for a few secs and see if it helps.
