Question about Computers & Internet
First, we need to know what password it is. If it is a BIOS password which displays during start up even before windows logo is displayed, then you are out of luck. This BIOS Admin Passwords are integrated into the computer's hardware and can only removed by replacing the chip of clearing the CMOS Chip.
Now if it is a windows password you can try one of the following:
When the system is booting, before the windows logo shows, press F8 repeatedly(don't worry if the computer start beeping when you press the key, its normal) once you do that you'll see a screen with a bunch of options, choose 'Safe Mode'. Your computer will scroll up the screen with all the files it is loading to start in safe mode. Now you should see your list of users at the login screen, plus one additional one Called "Administrator" select that. After Everything is loaded, it will ask you a yes or no message, click 'yes' and then goto your control panel, located in your 'Start' Menu. Once in there Open User Accounts. Then Choose 'Change an Account'. Locate the user you wish to change the password on, double click it and then select 'Remove Password' and then select 'Remove Password' Button again.
