Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

My laptop asus g1s i need password bios for it I'm not putting it but it show after i fixed i problem in Graphics card


you may have had a bad graphics card. if it workes after changing the graphics card, the bios is still locked, but not for use when powering on the system. without a regular bios password, you cannot enter the setup from the startup menu. with a bios security password, you will need a password to unlock the screen preventing it from starting, this password can chain to a hard disk password unlocked by placing the system security password, which will then provide a prompt for the hard disk password. :) one locks the setup for the whole system. one locks the system from starting up, and one locks the hard disk from being read. there are three. without knowing the password, if the computer will not start and load your system, ie windows mac osx, you can have someone retrieve the password, or change the motherboard. if it starts, most people don't worry about it. if it cost more to have someone resolder the bios chip, replace the main or motherboard. if it starts and runs, use it and don't worry about it. :)

How do i change bios settings on a laptop that wont let me passed the hdd password


BIOS passwords on a laptop would be especially tricky to override, especially on a laptop, you will have to take the laptop to a service provider for the specified laptop brand, and have them wipe/replace the chip that contains the password. Hope this helps.

My Dell Inspiron E1705 is set on lock.


More details are needed. Do you mean your screen saver locks the computer and you need a password to unlock? If so, uncheck the password on resume in the screen saver properties.

Do you mean the system requires a password on boot? If so, then you go to the password settings in BIOS and either DISABLE the password or change the password to BLANK (Which is the same as a DIsable function)

If you mean a password at windows login, then you need to remove the password in USER Accounts in control panel.

If none of those are the answer, then post the details of your situation.
