The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

Save files you specify before shutting down KillCMOS basically "resets" your computer's CMOS settings to the factory defaults. Works with ALL CMOS. KiLLCMOS only changes checksums & values that makes the motherboard CMOS revert back to factory defaults.

Editors Note: We occasionally are informed that programs like KillCMOS are infected with a virus. Note that the operating system system requirement for this program is DOS. This means you need to be able to boot from a floppy or CD to DOS and execute the program. If you are running this program from Windows, then you did not read the directions. Any good anti-virus program will detect an attempt to access the bios and inform you it is a virus.

hope it helps

This solutionwill work only if you have forgotten your Windows password. It will not work if youhave forgotten your boot password or hard drive password etc. Please post back if you need a boot or BIOS password.

Read on if you want to use a USB flash drive. Scroll down if you would ratherburn a CD/DVD.

USB Flash Drive Method
You need to download a Windows passwordcracker, put it on a flash drive, and boot it outside of the Windowsenvironment. This solution will show you how to do that.

1. Download the Ophcrack Windows password cracker from here. For Windows7, click on the ophcrack Vista LiveCD.Ophcrack is one of the best free Windows password recovery tools available.It's fast and easy even for a first time Windows password cracker. Save file toDesktop.

2. Download Xboot 1.0.0.0 Beta 6 here. Savefile to Desktop. Unzip file and extract to Desktop.

3. Plug a USB flash drive into your PC and format it with a FAT32 filesystem. This can be done by opening "My Computer" and right clickingon the USB flash drive and selecting Format. Select FAT32 and click OK. (Note:this will erase all data on your flash drive.)

4. Open Xboot.exe. Select the Ophcrack ISO file you downloaded and drag it ontothe Xboot screen.

5. Click on "Create USB" found in the bottom right hand corner of theXboot window.

6. Select your USB drive and click OK. Wait for your USB flash drive to becreated.

7. Restart computer and press F10 or appropriate function key for your computerto enter the temporary boot menu. It may be F12 or F9 etc. Look at the firstscreen that appears when you turn on the computer and you will see which key topress. You also could enter the BIOS and change the boot order if you wouldprefer that method.

8. Select USB Flash Drivefrom the boot menu.

9. The Ophcrack LiveCD will now boot. Hit enter to select the Graphic Modeoption when it appears.

10. Ophcrack will automatically begin cracking your passwords. The longer andmore complicated the password is the longer it will take to crack. 99% ofpasswords are crackable. Any password over 14 characters cannot be cracked.This program found my 8 character password which contains letters and numbersin less than 10 minutes.

11. Write down your password when it's cracked. Remove the USB drive andrestart computer.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

My son changed his password on his netbook. now he doesn't remember it. he cannot log in at all. he can do absolutely nothing with it. how can we fix this?


at Windows XP's Welcome Screen, simply press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys sequence together twice, and you will be shown a Log On to Windows menu where you can specify the User Name and Password. In the User Name text box, key in "Administrator" (without quotes) and leave the Password field blank. Then press Enter or click on OK. If there it is not a password protected Administrator account, or blank password is set, then you will be able to access the Windows with full administrative privileges as Administrator.

Then simply click start > control panel > User accounts then select your sons account and click edit then click remove password. once done simply log off and then log in to your sons account and no password will be asked for. If your son is the root administrator then you will need to get software to reset the password for you

I recently bought my daughter a Sylvania Netbook....... She can't remember her password to get into her computer.......... How can she/I reset or discontinue using a password to get into...


The only way that I know that will work is for you to re-flash the system, since the password is contained in a file that was loaded on to the machine's nand chip. You would have to erase that total file and the only way is to erase the whole system and reload it from a SD card. see my TIP at:

And please follow the detail exactly.

Lost log-in password


what is password? for windows? for BIOS? for what?....
you use eeePC with Linux OS or Microsoft Windows OS? For Linux, follow my instruction for recovery your OS. Press F9, after you turn ON your netbook. And follow that instruction. Or you can use recovery DVD (include your netbook), after you plug in external DVD-ROM and make it boot priority for first is DVD-ROM (enter your BIOS first).
