Password I forgot the passwords on a 5 year old PC. When I attempt to change the passwords, it will not allow me to change the admin one. Should I just purchase a clean install program disk? I really dont care about the old files.

I want to remove a ASUS Eeepc 4g bios password which i forgot please guide me thanks.


http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_ASUS_Bios.php can calculate a bios master password for your ASUS notebook for $20 and they guarantee it to work. The bios master password will clear the currently set bios password, giving you full access to bios setup. I repair laptops and I use them when I get a laptop with an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password and they have always worked for me.

I cant log on because i forgot my password


If you have any other user account with admin rights then only you can change the password..else you have to reinstall the operating system.
If you have a different account with admin accounts.
go to start then in run type in cmd\
you will see a black window.

Then follow the below steps:

To change a user's password at the command prompt, log on as an administrator and type:
net user user_name * /domain When you are prompted to type a password for the user, type the new password, not the existing password. After you type the new password, the system prompts you to retype the password to confirm. The password is now changed.

Alternatively, you can type the following command:
net user user_name new_password
When you do so, the password changes without prompting you again. This command also enables you to change passwords in a batch file.

Non-administrators receive a "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied" error message when they attempt to change the password.
