You will have to remove the hard drive and back up all the files you wish to save. You can do this with a 7 dollar USB hard drive adapter cable from E-Bay. Save your files on another computer. You then have to be able to boot the computer from the optical drive. Before going through all the following steps just try to boot from the optical drive with the operating system install disk. If it boots from the disk you can skip all the other instructions here and reload your operating system and drivers and restore the backed up files and you are done. If you can't boot from the optical disk then read on.

Make sure the optical drive is the first device listed in the boot order in the system bios setup screen. You can get into the system bios setup screen on most computers by hitting the F2 key or DEL key as soon as you hit the power button. Which key depends on the bios used in the system, Award, AMI, Intel, ect... Try F2 key first as this is the most common. If the bios setup screen is password protected also, remove the bios back up battery on the mother board to erase the password stored in the bios and replace the battery. If the password is still there You will have to locate the EEPROM that contains the password and short pin 3 to pin 6 and power up the pc. This will erase the electrically erasable programmable read only memory chip. You can find the location of this chip by googleing for it. search for the string" bios password chip location (make/model of pc)" use variations of this format until you find a link to a site or forum with the location of the bios pass word chip. Once you are in the bios setup set the boot order to reflect the optical drive as first in the boot order. Hit F10 to save and exit. Now you have to reload the operating system and all the device drivers for your hardware(video,sound,LAN,ect..). Now that you have a fresh operating system installed restore all the files you backed up earlier and you have done it !!!

In some very rare cases in very high end computers you may have to actually replace this bios password EEPROM. In this case you simply buy a new one and swap it out.

This is every step needed to reactivate a computer with a locked password(Bios and Operating system). I spent an hour typing this out carefully making sure it was written so that anyone that reads it will be able to understand it and carry out the full procedure no matter what obstacles may arise and the solutions to work around these obstacles. If for some unforeseen reason you can not perform this procedure you can contact me directly geokohler@gmail.com with your phone number, country, and a time when you will be available and I will call you for free world wide and walk you through the process step by step until you have restored the computer. I will even send you any software you might need, all for nothing more than the fixya rating. I hope you find this information useful. If this keeps just 1 perfectly good otherwise computer out of the landfill My mission will be accomplished. This information is not intended to be used on stolen laptops or computers. I only want to save as many of the 1000's of good computers that get discarded every year because of this easily remedied problem. Now go rescue that PC !

How to Password Protect And Access a Password-Protected Word Document


How to Password Protect a Microsoft Word Document
If you are working on documents that are important and shouldn’t be changed, then there is a way to password protect them so they cannot be changed except by you. You can also make the documents unavailable to open unless the person has the password as well.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • A Computer

  • Microsoft Office with Microsoft Word

  • Word Documents

  • General Knowledge of Microsoft Word

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word and open or create the document that you want to password protect.

Step 2

Click on “File” in the toolbar and select “Save As”.

Step 3

Click on the “Tools” menu and select “Security Options”.

Step 4

This will open a “Security Options” window. You may now set a password under the “Password to open” box, “Password to modify” box or both.

Step 5

Once you type in the password of your choosing you can opt to make the file “Read-only” by checking the appropriate box. You may then click “OK” to save your changes and then save your document as usual.

How to Access a Password-Protected Word Document
Accessing a password-protected Microsoft Word document is only possible when you have the correct password that opens the document. Encryption and security levels differ for separate versions of Word. Microsoft 2007 doesn’t offer any solutions to allow a user to retrieve forgotten passwords and Microsoft does not allow its employees to help in retrieving or breaking passwords. If you do not have the correct password for the document, you will be unable to access it.

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • Microsoft Word

  • Document password

Step 1

Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you stored the Word document.

Step 2

Double-click on the document to begin opening it. A separate window will appear that prompts you to enter the document password.

Step 3

Enter the password, which is case-sensitive.

Step 4

Click the “Open” button or hit the “Enter” key. If the password was correct, the document will open. If it was not correct, another window will display advising you the password was incorrect and prompting you to try again.

Tips & Warnings:
Have you ever think of this situation, what if you forget the word password ? does that mean you’ll never regain the data in your word document, of course the answer is not , here is the solution for you to unlock password protection word document without data loss!
