When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there hope this helps

also

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

I forgot my password please can you help you me


If you can't get in a phone because you forgot your password, the only way in, is to reset the phone and setting up the phone from scratch. You will lose all data, like contact lists, notes, images, and all apps, you did not backup on a computer or in the cloud.
Setting up a password protection on a smart phone, was to prevent anyone without password to be able to access your data. Now you forgot the password, you are excluded to the information too.
If there was a general code to unlock every password, that would make the security a farce and worth nothing.

How can i open or break my external hard drive password


Try to open it and remove teh drives one by oen and connect them into computer directly and see if you can save the data first ..than format it ..cause there is no way to change the password..If you have access into the info inside it may be a chance to locate the file with the password ..But it is a long shoot ..
My advice is to format it and never use password if you know you have these kinda problems ..
I repeat ..if you have important data ..there can be accessed directly if you connect the drives inside directly and do not use the board of the device ..basically they are still hard disks and can be seen if you connect them on sata or ide ..depending on what kinda plug they have ..Beware if it is in warranty ..opening it will make it useless ..

I forgot my password on my External WD Hard drive


The WD software can not retrieve your password. If you lose your password you will be permanently locked out of access to your data.

It is possible to reformat the the drive, but you will lose all data.
