    We need to know your OS and a bit more about your problem. If you're looking for ctrl-alt-dlt to change your password you have to allow that option within your user accounts in control panel. (Change the ways users login), otherwise use the option directly in User Accounts to "Change Password". Are you locked out of the laptop and looking for a way to get in?

My laptop asus g1s i need password bios for it I'm not putting it but it show after i fixed i problem in Graphics card


you may have had a bad graphics card. if it workes after changing the graphics card, the bios is still locked, but not for use when powering on the system. without a regular bios password, you cannot enter the setup from the startup menu. with a bios security password, you will need a password to unlock the screen preventing it from starting, this password can chain to a hard disk password unlocked by placing the system security password, which will then provide a prompt for the hard disk password. :) one locks the setup for the whole system. one locks the system from starting up, and one locks the hard disk from being read. there are three. without knowing the password, if the computer will not start and load your system, ie windows mac osx, you can have someone retrieve the password, or change the motherboard. if it starts, most people don't worry about it. if it cost more to have someone resolder the bios chip, replace the main or motherboard. if it starts and runs, use it and don't worry about it. :)

How do I delete admin account on a MacBook?


You have to have another account on the machine. System Preferences>Users>Click on the lock if it is locked, and type in the admin password. From here, you can add or remove users.
If you want to remove this because you don't have the admin password, for example removing a previous owner from a used laptop you've purchased legally, you can boot from the OSX disc and change the password through the menu bar there.

How to remove BIOS password


If you have the current password, use it to access the bios password screen in your BIOS menu and leave the new password blank.
Assuming you don't have the BIOS password, there is generally a white jumper connecting two pins on the system board. With this removed, the BIOS password will not lock out changes to the BIOS. This is especially useful if you've purchased a used system that the previous owner locked out.

Forgot user account psswords


If you have forgotten your password, if you have another user account with
administrative privileges you can log into that account and change your
original user account's password from the User Accounts applet in Control
Panel. If you don't have another account like this set up or don't have the
password to it, you'll need to log into the built-in Administrator account.
In XP Home, boot the computer into Safe Mode. Do this by repeatedly tapping
the F8 key as the computer is starting up. This will get you to the right
menu. Navigate using your Up arrow key; the mouse will not work here. Once
in Safe Mode, you will see the normally hidden Administrator account. The
default password is a blank.

In XP Pro, you do not need to go into Safe Mode. At the Welcome Screen, do
Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get the classic Windows logon box. Type in
"Administrator" and whatever password you assigned when you set up Windows.

To change the built-in Administrator account in XP Pro if you can log into
another account with administrative privileges reset the password in the
Local Users and Groups snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC):

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type "mmc" (without the quotation marks), and then click
OK to start MMC.
3. Start the Local Users and Groups snap-in.
4. Under Console Root, expand "Local Users and Groups", and then click
Users.
5. In the right pane, right-click Administrator, and then click Set
Password.
6. Click Proceed in the message box that appears.
7. Type and confirm the new password in the appropriate boxes, and then
click OK.

If you reset the built-in Administrator account's password in Home or have
Pro and don't remember the password, use NTpasswd to change the built-in
Administrator account's password to a blank.
