|How Do I Remove Setup Password by pheesayor(m): 10:41pm On Nov 01, 2007|
Hi N'landers, I need help with reseting a computer's password. I bought it used and in trying to reset the password, I removed the CMOS battery and replaced it, that didnt work. I then removed the jumper maybe that'll work too but it did not. After then I tried laoding my hard disk but noticed that the boot sequence has changed. I cant install and I cant change the setup. Please how can I remove the password

Removing the computer's CMOS battery resets the BIOS settings, I assume that the system in question is a desktop. Make sure the battery is out for lets say 3-5 minutes. Then replace it and your BIOS settings would have been reset.

Just boot the system on safe mode
click cONTROL PANEL
click user accounts
click on the administrator account
From there, you can see delete password for this user.

Hi guys, am a new member.
i have encountered this problem of recent and a friend of mine who helped me in purchasing the system (P3) said i should enter 0000000 or 1111111 (7 zeros or ones).
Reply me if it works.
