Try removing the battery that is located on the motherboard. It is usually a round mercury cell about the size of a quarter.Be prepaired though because you will loose all your setup info from the BIOS. This is easy to reinstall but might be worth writting down the hard disk parameters. Many of the newer computers will auto detect this info if it is plug-n-play capable.You can get to setup when you power up your machine you will see a message like " if you want to run setup press __. sometimes Del, sometimes F10, or others.Hope this helps

You might try leaving the password box blank, don' t enter anything, and just hit enter. That happened to a friend's computer and he was told to do that and it worked. Hope it helps.

How to unlock your computer if you forgot your password and you dont have a disc


Assuming that your op. system is Windows XP, at the user log on screen hit the CTRL+ALT+DELETE twice. This will bring you at a log on screen that you can type "administrator" for user and none (blank field) for password. Hit OK and after the system log on change your account's password as you wish.
In case you have already change the default administrator password, post me back to give you more details for resetting this password.

My daughter forgot her password on emachine E725 and can not boot. How can we reboot the computer? Thank you.


Assuming that you mean the Windows log in password, try using blank (none) as password (otherwise at the log on screen hit "enter"). If this doesn't work log on at the administrator's account. To do this if you can see the administrator's icon click on it and use blank (none) for password again. If you can't see the administrator's icon, hit ctrl+atl+del TWICE and type as user "administrator", blank (none) for password and hit enter. After you log on as administrator change your user's account as you wish and you are ready to go.

You will probably have to take into an authorized dealer to reset it. They have factory CDs to do it especially if its a Toshiba. Some notebooks may reset by pulling the lithium battery out if you can get to it.

Make sure you bring the reciept if you bring it in because they might want to make sure it is your computer.
