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

After that:

click start
click user accounts

click on the administrator account

From there, you can see delete password for this user.
