You will need to clear the CMOS memory. This will require the CMOS/RTC battery to be disconnected (along with the main battery and mains power). Unfortunately, this battery is deep inside the laptop somewhere near the volume control board, so you will need to open the laptop casing to get to it.

Typed in password wrong, when typed in right cant log in


Hi Brenda,
First I need to find out if the password you are referring to is the Bios password or a Windows password.
If when you turn on your laptop you get a black screen and then the password prompt, This is Bios password.
Or if you see loading windows, Then the password prompt, This windows password.
If you can tel me this I may be able to help you.

Cant remember password for lap top how do I use command prompt to open laptop without password


magooster857,
You cannot use a command prompt to find the password of your computer.If you made a recovery disk from within Windows you can boot to it to recover your password. You will need to purchase software online to recover your password or reinstall Windows.
