I have a compaq nc 6200 notebook that has been packed away for a while. When i turn it on it asks for a startup password before windows even boots. I dont remember ever setting one in the bios. Is there a way to bypass or reset it?

2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.
3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.
4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to reset Account password.
