Clear cmos


if you want to reset your password or your cmos


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

Restart your computer 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

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we 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 the 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 cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

start a windows xp system up n safe mode then click on control panel ten user accounts then the specified user which is password protected and it allows you to change the password without knowing the original one. Restart the computer. Repeatedly press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK.
Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place. I do not recommend that a password hint be used.
Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.
hope this helps you

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..


i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!

I have a acer laptop computer, there is a person name and password on there and i can't remove it off, bought it at pawnshop, how do i enter my own information?


Try to logon as administrator. At logon screen press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to popup the logon dialog window. Instead of the person name type "administrator". Do not enter any password in the field. Press OK. If you're lucky you will log on as administrator. Then use Control Panel -> Users to remove the current user and create a new one.
If you cannot logon as administrator, then you can use a program for removing passwords, loaded from a bootable CD like Superutilities or Hiren Boot CD. Reinstalling Windows is a solution too.

I bought a used computer. The computer is asking for password.


Hi. Try to access the windows advanced option by turning the computer on and keep tapping F8. If you see the choices how to boot the system, select Safe Mode then press enter.

Log in as Administrator. It should not ask for a password. Go to the control panel and open the User account of user profiles. Click on the previous owner's profile and delete it. You may also create your own profile while your on safemode.

Hope that will help you!

I cannot remember my login and password. The computer has not been used for several years. How do I by pass the ogin screen or change my login and password?


I believe your computer has windows XP on it? if y\it is XP on it upon powering your system keep on tapping F8 until you get to windows advance menu then select safe mode it should log into win xp select the administrator account, once logged in as administrator go to control panel in xp select users icon then in users icon click on manage accounts then select the your log in Icon which you forgot the password then click on change password........ this should help you log back in your computer, but if you don't have any files that need to be backed up on that computer I suggest that you reformat instead to make sure that windows will run perfectly fine when you use it, but if you don't have a windows installer and you are successful in changing the password I suggest that you clean up the system by doing a disc clean up on it and a defragmentation on the Hard drive

How do i unlock my computer if i forgot my username and password


As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
Windows password reset software:
for example:Windows Password Reset. It is easy and convenient to use.
