Having problems with your PC Desktops ?


Answers :

Depending on the point where you are locked out, you'll need to reset the password for your system. There are a couple ways to do this.
  1. If it's asking you for a BIOS password, which is a password prompt that appears before you see the windows booting screen like in this image:
    then you'll need to open the laptop and remove the small BIOS battery inside the machine. After letting it sit for a couple of hours, plug the battery back in and it will clear the BIOS password. This won't be easy unless you're quite mechanically inclined.

  3. If you've simply lost your Windows password (A password box that appears after you see the windows booting screen, and once windows loads), then you'll need to try one of two things.
  • At the login screen, which should look like this image:
    press the key combination "ctrl-alt-del" twice. It should take you to a prompt where you can input a specific username and password like in this figure:
    Type the username of "Administrator", and leave the password field blank. Click ok. If you can login, then go to the Control Panel, then User Accounts. From here, you can reset your password for your account. If this didn't work, try the next step.

  • Alternatively, you can purchase and use a program that will forcibly reset any windows password at http://www.password-reset.com/biosinfo.php. You will need to boot from the CD it will have you create, and follow the instructions to reset the password for you.
  • \015\012
  • There are a number of free programs similar to the password-reset I just showed you, however they tend to be difficult to use, and do not have good documentation. The easiest solution is to pay the $50 bucks for that program.
If you absolutely don't want to buy that software, command back here and i'll try and give you a more detailed, free solution. Comment back on your progress, and i'll see if I can help you any firther than this.
If you are running windows nt, 2000 or xp pro, you might be able to download a linux boot floppy image from a friend's pc, then you can use that to reset the administrator password.
\015\012If you've locked yourself out of the bios, you might need to contact the manufacturer, with proof of purchase, to have it reset.
