If you lost your password on a desktop pc, then the best solution is to clear all passwords; you can do this by opening the case of your computer, locating the CMOS and unseating this connection for a few seconds, this will reset the BIOS and allow you to enter a new password. If you do not know what the CMOS looks like, it is a little connection pin that resembles the pins on the back of your optical drive only it is located directly on your motherboard. You can also type in the name of your motherboard in IE and get a manual for your MB to see a visual of where this connection is located. Hope this helped.
