This computer is second hand, I'm just letting you know right off the bat. I don't know what the BIOS password is, and I need to get to setup. I managed to determine my BIOSis from AMI, and here's what the AMI Utility got for me:

An AMIBIOS ID String Was Detected:

62-0510-009999-00101111-071595-000000
- ---- ------ ------
| | | |
| | | Chipset/BIOS Info
| | BIOS Build Date
| Manufacturer ID
BIOS ROM Information

AMIBIOS ROM Size: 256 KB
BIOS Build Date: Jul 15 1995
Motherboard Manufacturer Code: 9999Not listed in MAN.DAT file
AMIBIOS Build Tag: M758LMRE

SMBIOS info:

Manufacturer : PCCHIPS
Product Name : M758LMR
Version : 1.0
Serial Number: 00000000

Any ideas as to what I should do now? Any kind of software that can tell me what the password actually is? I know I can take out the battery, but I don't have the means to do so. Any help is much appreciated.

Hey, not sure if this was the right topic, i was unsure if this should go in "Security".

Anyways, a friend of mine is running a computer with XP, and has forgotten the password for his account. He can't go onto other users (his sister's for example) and remove his password from there, because he gave everyone else "restricted rights" accounts, and made his account the only administrator. I said I could re-install windows for him, start anew etc. and he's fine with it, as are the rest of the users. But, the local computer shop say they can remove the password, through BIOS.

I'm not completely computer savvy, but surely thats impossible? If you could remove passwords through the BIOS, a computer/harddrive could be stolen, and the passwords on the accounts would be useless. Can anyone explain the logic here please?

Thanks in advance

I am the owner of a used Elitebook Folio 9470m laptop that I procured from my friend. It is very lightweight laptop, and I really love it.Unfortunately, the laptop came with admin password on the BIOS. I already contacted him, and he has no idea what it is. This was his father laptop, and he also has no idea about it. So, I'm left here with this laptop, but no way to tinker around with the BIOS. Obviously this isn't good!All sources lead me to this area where can I contact HP support to try to solve my problem.  I opened up two cases.  First one, case ID 4779632926 and did not get response. Second, 4779725521 and this is response i got. " I  really apologize for the inconvenience, unfortunately we will not be able to support this case."  I tried to reply to this case with subject <4779725521> and then I received message that case is closed. We are sorry, but we were unable to process your request.

The Case with ID "4779725521" is closed or does not exist and cannot be updated. PLS if there is any chance to solve this, let me know.  I can provide any information you need. Thank you.

Hi - I am at wits end because after dealing with several update/driver/virus problems in windows 8.1, my system went into total recovery mode with none of the options helping.  When I was limited to turning it on and ONLY getting a black screen with the blue password box, I had to set it aside for a bit before I lost my mind.  When I tried copying my files to a usb, I realized that all my passwords that I had saved on a document, did not copy.  Before I lost my mind, I had to set it aside for a while and figure out what to do.  Upon returning to it, I realized that I forgot that exact system password and could not retrieve it, as well as my email password with which I set up my account with (and I also changed phone numbers within this time)! Therefore, I went back to researching my latest issue with this system (that I can't believe has been the BIGGEST pain in the rear that I have ever had) and haven't found a solution.  I am usually self sufficient and have learned a lot about computers in the past year, but I just don't have any fight left in me for this.  Please let me know who I can send the information about my computer too and I pray that someone can help me get in there.  Thank you.

If it's the Windows password, you can restore the system from  your recovery media without it -- if you didn't prepare a set, call Dell to purchase one.
If it's a system password (BIOS/UEFI power on password), you will need to call Dell support by voice phone.  Be prepared with your ownership details and, unless the system is in warranty, with a credit card -- the call will not be free unless the system is in warranty.

So, I installed Windows 10 last week. Yesterday I explored a bit and discovered Windows Edge, their new email/ outlook client. I attached my personal Gmail address to the service as well as my corporate address. My corporate account required me to create a new password that fit my company's security standards, which I did, but, after feeling like my company address was restricting how I use my personal home computer, I removed that address. Here's where I get fuzzy, I cannot, for the life of me remember, if I changed my password back to one that didn't conform to my company's security standards or if I left it alone. All I know is that once my computer locked later that night, I was unable to get back in. I've tried every permutation of every password, including that corporate password, I've ever used with no success.

I do not have a password reset disk nor do I have a system repair disk with which to reinstall Windows 10.

So, how screwed am I? Will I have to reinstall Windows 7, the last OS I have a disk for, and hope I can reupgrade to Windows 10?

P.S.
I did not attach my MSN email address (aka my Microsoft Account) to my computer, so resetting my password that way is a no go.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

Hello all,

I hope I can get some help / guidance from some one with more experience with the M400 if possible?!

I reinstalled the OS and setup the biometric security for me, which has worked flawlessly! However I stupidly also set up the boot up security (BIOS Password). So when the tablet gets turned on I can scan my finger and get in without any issues, however I now want to turn the boot up security off. So I booted it in to the OS and went to disable it....however it asks for my password....which I have forgot as I have been a typical end user and have been only using my bloody finger!

Does anyone know if I can disable the BIOS security while in the OS using the biomentric security rather than entering a password? I have tried just changing the admin password within the win OS but that doesn't work....any ideas?

Any help with be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password

What can I do now?

Hi

Before trying to update the BIOS, all passwords should be removed!
BIOS password can be removed by authorized service provider available in your country.

But the unknown HDD password cannot be removed anymore.
In such case the HDD isn?t accessible and cannot be used.

Sorry mate but in my opinion you have only one chance to get the BIOS password removed; you need the ASP assistance.

As for the Bios, my desktop can be bypassed by either taking out the battery or resetting the CMOS jumper. On her laptop I took the battery out but it was still locked. She was hoping I could buy a different hard drive and the computer still be usable.

However we do not know the password for the computer and have not located the password reset disc that it says is needed to do that. We do not think he made one. Is there any was to access windows to obtain the needed information?? Also, I was told that I have to re-install windows 7 to proceed, but how can I do that if I cannot even get into the system ???? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, If you normally sign-on with an email and password, see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.  https://account.live.com/password/reset When you've reset this on the Microsoft site, connect your notebook to your router/access point via a ethernet cable, start it and then leave it at the log-on screen for a few minutes before trying the new password. Regards, DP-K

A:password recovery

hello

Welcome to TSF

Ok now as standard there is a built in Administrator account with no password set (Hopefully you haven't changed this password)

1. restart your PC pressing F8 and when the boot screen comes up select safe mode with command prompt
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type net user (name of user) *, and then click OK. i.e net user placehold *
4. Type in the password you now want it reset to and confirm the password
5. then reboot

Regards

Okay, I am trying to fix my parents computer for them, and I need to be logged on as the Administrator, in order to do what I'm trying to do. Well, the problem is, is that I have no clue what the Administrator Password is.....I have asked my parents, and since it was over a year ago that they installed XP, they also have no clue what the password is. (Dad forgot his e-mail password, not even an hour after he created it!!!)
So, how do I, either, change the password, or find out what the Administrator Password is?
Also, does a created account user, who has "computer administrator" privileges, still have all the same access and priveliges, as does the actual Administrator. (the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in safe mode)...

Let me first off start by saying I realize a lot of you wont help me because of what I am asking. Let me just say, I am doing this out of curiosity. I am not trying to break into anyones protected files, or even ones that I forgot a password to. I am doing this entirely just to satisfy my curiosity.


Ok, so here is the poop.

I got bored the other night, and decided to try and learn how to break into password protected zip files. I looked around online, found some trials and played around. I found one that seems pretty good (KRyLack).

My question is, does anyone know of a similar program that is multi-threaded?

Waiting a week while it tries to brute force into file is horrible with my three remaining cores sitting there doing nothing.


Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

Hey guys,

I have a question... Is it possible to recover a password used to log on to a site, when u choose IE NOT to remember the password??? I have the username, but don't know the password, and there's no way for me to retrieve it, so i hope i can find it somewhere on my system... I'm running W2K SP4 and IE 6...
What happened was this:
I logged on to a site, using username and password (via a form on the site)
I choose NO when IE asked if I wanted it to remember the password
This was on saturday
And I need that password, i do still have the username though

Hope that anyone can help me!!!

If you registered at a site, they should have a way to send you your password or at least a way to reset it. They should have a link that says Forgot Your Password? where you can click on it and they will sent the reset password or your actual password to your email account.

Hi, i recently took over from a previous engineer as a broadcast and IT systems engineer, the last guy set the some bloody tricky passwords on some crucial kit and didnt pass it on to me, he has since forgotton these passwords.

I am not a total novice but i specialse in networking and broadcast systems not system admin so i need alittle help.

The data on these machines is ireplacable and is not backup so a rebuild is out of the question, they run win2k.

I have found a few tools that claim to be able to help by creating a linux boot cd or floppy, you boot this linux disk an then it is supposed togooffand sort throught the registry and find the password. Trouble is that i cant make the bootcd.

The app is called austrumi. I think i may need to compile it but am not a programer so woul know where to begin.

Can anybody help? or does anyone know of a decent bootable password recovery tool?

A:password recovery

To create a bootable cd you need to be able to burn the image file onto the cd. Search for burncdcc. this will burn the image file correctly to the cd and make it bootable. then you need to restart your computer and configure the boot device selection to check if there is a bootable cd in the drive before it boots from the main OS. Most of the time you can enter the setup when you restart your computer by pressing f1 or f2 (it should tell you which one to press to "enter setup").

P.S The image file will probably be an ISO file

I don't think so, the password file within Windows is heavily encrypted and near impossible to decrypt (without knowing the password of cause).

I would recommend using a tool such as Help and Support on RecoverAnyPassword.com which will change the password, but at least you can login.

I think that we need some clarification as to what type of password you reference. If Dell wanted to charge money...I don't think it's a typical user password that you refer to...and I've not heard of Dell ever charging the ridiculous sum you quoted...for recovery disks.

FWIW: There are various retailers who sell these recovery disks...for far less than you stated.

Hello Amyer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could go to each account's site, and click on their "Forgot password" or "Reset Password" link for this. They may require you to enter your user name and email address that you registered with them.

Afterwards, I would recommend to write down all of your accounts along with their log in names and passwords in say a spiral notebook, and keep it somewhere safe if you should ever need it.

Hope this helps,

Hello, and Welcome
 
You can enable the Hidden Administrator Account using a bootable disk. Follow the steps here. Once you have the Administrator Account enabled you can change or delete the password in Control panel under USERS. On a Windows 7 computer you can burn the iso by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. On a XP computer you can use isoburner. It's best not to reset the password. Only enable the Adminstrator account and use that to change or delete the password of  your account.
 
If there is more than one account on the computer, log into the account that does not need a password and type CMD in the search box. Right click > Run as Administrator then type:

net user administrator /active:yes
You can disable the Administrator account again using

net user administrator /active:no

I have been searching the internet a lot and keep reading about password recovery/remover programs and they all say how good they are!!! I've been looking at Word Password from LastBit, but not sure if this is just going to be the same as Office Key??

Does anyone know of a program that is 'Guaranteed' to work. Even if it justs get rid of the password.

OK I play dark orbit flash game and have invested some money into that game.

My problem is that I had a laptop and now its gone but I still have the HDD. the version of windows 7 is 64 bit and the computer I have access to is only 32bit and I can't restore my settings and recover my password for the game. I also signed up for the game though syfy.com and am unable to get the password from them. I had the password stored in my firefox and in an email stored in a personal folder in windows live mail but am unable to restore either of these programs to allow me to see the password which is at least 32 char. long.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get the password back from the hard drive as I know its stored some place but all the google I have done brings up nothing useful. I have tired the send me the password via email thing and of course since I signed up to the game though syfy com they wouldn't tell me what the password is and I am unable to change the password as I have tried in the past.

So I know I can't get the password from the firefox file key3.db as it just blanks out all the stored passwords. I have also tried to restore the mail folder from my old HDD into the new system which also failed. I don't want to give up a years worth of progress and the money I have invested into the game.

A:password recovery help

OK..I might have a way but it's a long shot since the key3db isn't the original you're using right now. I just tried it and it worked just fine with my installation.

Well..here goes:
#1) back up/move your actual key3db to a safe location
#2) Download FirePassword 3.5 Free . unpack it to your desktop (just the folder inside
#3) copy the key3.db with the password in question in the correct folder of your firefox installation usually
C:\Users\<Login name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<your profile>.default

#4) open a command prompt (CMD) and CD into the folder you unzipped onto the desktop in step2.
#5) enter in the command line

firepassword.exe >>.\pwd.txt

press Enter and after a few seconds you should find a file named pwd.txt with all the host/password combinations from your key3.db.

If you had a master password set then this way will not work...but there are programs out there for that too

Please let me know if it worked
Good luck

So, I waited for a half hour to see what would happen, and nothing happend. I eventually removed the battery to turn off the computer and restart. Only problem is, my computer won't restart. As a matter of fact it doesn't do anything. No lights, no sounds, not even a battery charger light. I went to acer site and found some instructions to fix my netbook, which said to unplug power cord and remove battery then hold power for 30 sec, but still not working.

Please help!!!!

Do the cmos reset again (unplug, remove battery, hold power button) sometimes it takes several attempts

 We have a client's laptop and we are having trouble recovering the bios on a HP Pavilion DV9700. We tried to update the bio recently. Before we did the update we checked the bios and saw that it was a HP Pavilion 9700 so I download the lastest bios and updated. Now the laptop will not display anything  on screen and all of the LED are on.  I looked up the P/N and found out that is a DV9910US laptop. HP is so confusing with their different models. Is there anything I can do to fix the bios on the system

Got this HP from a customer. Computer is unbootable and  nornally just powers up and suts there with a black back lit screen. Once in awhile it will show the error 502 "The CMOS checksum is invalid. The CMOS wil be reset to the default configuration and will be rebooted. Please check your bios settings to see if theyve changed". I changed the CMOS battery and nothing. If I hit F10 right away I can get into the BIOS menu. At this point I can only assume that the BIOS has been corrupted. The computer was only weeks old when this happened. I repair PCs in a small town and am constantly getting HP laptops..............Anyway, I need to make a BIOS recovery USB. The website isnt showing any BIOS download for this model and even If I can get it downloaded the explanation of what files need to be placed on the USB is muddy at best. Lets get it together HP. Any help would be appreciated  Bob

Hello, you're really limited as to what your options are here. You can try calling HP and see if they can walk you through doing a crisis recovery sort of thing. It will entail a key combination that will enable the Boot Block portion of the BIOS chip (if it has one)

I went through this last month with my DV9000 model. I searched the web for a few weeks looking for some kind of solution. I ended up sending it to aqstech a repair shop in NY for a BIOS rescue service.

PS, the repair cost me $99 + shipping.
