You want it disabled Karenpo? If you don't want it to ask you for a password, you can go to START, select CONTROL PANEL, click USER ACCOUNTS, select your username, and then click REMOVE PASSWORD. This is for XP operating systems. Let me know how it goes.

How do I turn off google authenticator?


Hi
You may find the following works:-

Turning off 2-Step Verification

  1. Visit the Using 2-Step Verification page under your Google Account settings. Sign in with your username, password, and verification code if prompted.
  2. Click Turn off 2-Step Verification.
  3. A pop-up window will appear to confirm that you want to turn off 2-Step Verification. Click OK.

Revoking and destroying passwords and codes to protect your account

If you used App Passwords to authorize applications to access your Google Account, we recommend you go back to using passwords -- rather than App Passwords -- to access these applications. That way, you can revoke your App Passwords so nobody else can use them:
  1. Visit the Authorizing applications & sites page under your Google Account settings.
  2. Click Revoke for any application or device whose code you want to revoke.
  3. For each application that you revoked an App Password, you'll need to reauthorize the application by entering your username and password, as you did before you turned on 2-Step Verification. You might not be prompted for this information the next time you use the application as some applications will take longer to recognized that an App Password has been revoked.
In addition, remember to destroy all backup codes that you had been using to verify this account.

Good luck.

CLEAR POWER-ON PASSWORD IN XW 6200


Try Below step.

To disable the power-on or setup password features, or clear the power-on or setup passwords, do the following:
  1. Shut down the operating system and then turn off the workstation and any external devices. Disconnect the power cord of the workstation and any external devices from the power outlets.
  2. Disconnect the keyboard, monitor, and any other external devices that are connected to the workstation.
  3. Remove the hood cover.
  4. Locate the header and jumper. The password jumper is green.
  5. Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper on either pin 1 or 2, but not both, so it does not get lost.
  6. Replace the hood cover.
  7. Reconnect the external equipment.
  8. Plug in the workstation and turn on the power. Allow the operating system to start. This clears the current passwords and disables the password features.
  9. To establish new passwords, repeat steps 1 through 4, replace the password jumper on pins 1 and 2, then repeat steps 6 through 8. Establish the new passwords in Computer Setup.

Inspiron b110 wont turn on only green flashig


Unplug your computer, wait 30 minutes, plug it back in and try again.

If it still doesn't work, it's got a serious problem. If it isn't under warranty with DELL any longer, take it to a reputable repair facility.

Hello,

when the machine is booted then please right click on my computer and go in manage option and it will open computer management.

Please right click on your user name and click reset password and assign a password.
Before logging in now your system will be asking the password.

If you are talking about the password immediately after turning on the machine then you will have to reset the password in bios under security.
You will need administrator rights for resetting windows password.

Thanks

I forgot the power on password


Is this a BIOS password? In other words, are you asked for a password immediately upon turning on the computer? If yes, then it depends on the make/model of the laptop whether you can fix this yourself. In any case, you would need to call Compaq tech support.

I bought a computer of ebay and i need a password to log in and i don't know what the password is so how can i change it or reboot the whole system????


If the desktop is prompting you for a password as soon as you turn it on, before the operating system even boots up, then that is a BIOS-level password. Easiest way to clear that one is to open up the machine and look for a jumper on the motherboard labelled PASSWD or CLEAR. TURN OFF the computer, place a shunt over that jumper to connect the two pins, then turn it back on. That will clear the password for you. Good luck!!

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.
