Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

When I boot-up my computer it shows the ''Enter Master HD Password.'' Unfortunately, I tried removing the CMOS Battery for more then 30 minutes, and nothing really happened (with the battery and A/C Adapter Removed). The computer was bought with a friend, that has left the country, and unfortunately I have never used it. Everything seems to be fine, the vista sticker is there etc... But the warranty is done. Would a complete reinstallation of Windows Vista help? But I don't think that it should


Answers :

Try Resseting Bios - It seems you have a notebook - If you can let me know which one - Can Help you with the required Steps. Re- Installing Vista will not help as you are not able to login even in the Bios. Secondly, Is the Password windows same ''Enter Master HD Password.'' - Alternately you can also unplug the Hard Drive to determine if it is A Vista Releated issue or a Bios Password.
You could reinstall windows but first would have to use a system rescue cd and wipe HD clean. Otherwise you can try to press ESC key 3 times to bypass password
