If it is password in BIOS, then clear the CMOS by removing the BIOS configuration jumper (See MOBO manual for this).

That should remove the BIOS Passwords..

Which operating system ??
The Hewlett Packard ILO (Integrated Lights Out) tool lets a network administrator connect to a remote Windows Server system.
This process enables the administrator to perform troubleshooting and problem fixing as if the server were connected locally.
If the password of the account used for connectivity becomes corrupt, it can be reset from within the Windows interface.

Log on to a Windows computer that has a connection to the HP ILO.
Click the "Start" button. In the "Search" box, type "lusrmgr.msc."
Press "Enter" to open the User Management console.
Double-click "Local Users and Groups."
Click "Users."
Scroll down to the HP ILO user account.
Right-click on it. From the drop-down list, click "Set Password."
Type in a new password.

If this is a power-on password you need to get around, try the following:

1. Power down your system.
2. Power on the system.
3. Tap F8 as the system powers on.
4. Choose "Start Windows in Safe Mode with Networking" (or any "Start Windows in safe-mode" option. Networking just gives you internet support).
5. When the windows login screen appears, you may have another account available called Administrator.
6. Click on the Administrator account.
7. When the desktop comes up, go to START > Control panel > Users and Accounts
8. You should be able to find your normal account you login into.
9. Depending on the settings, you may be able to view information within the Users and Accounts control panel. I believe there is a way to view passwords, or remove passwords from accounts from within the Administrator level Users and Accounts control panel.
10. Locate your account and view the settings. You should be able to remove or view your password. (Circumstance varies in this regard, as the results depend on whether the administrator level of the control panel has been restricted or the options modified in any way previously).
11. When you are finished, power down the system normally.

If there is no Administrator account when the windows login screen appears after starting in safe mode, this feature is disabled and you can not access the administrator account from a safe-mode start-up.

I can't shut down my PC,It restarts again!

This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 ( ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby

To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

Locked computer

Bugsy, just in case-have you tried without a password? By pressing and holding down the power button 5+ secs will power down the machine. Removing the battery will shut it down too. The issue is "will you still be locked out when you reboot?" You should try starting in safemode when you reboot (pressing F8) during the initial boot process and see if you can log in as administrator(no password). If you can access safemode try to reset the administrators password in user accounts. Let me know if you've made any progress. Tim
