Re: how to unlock Compaq Presario cq57

I am assuming that you are asking for Windows Password.

There are several ways to reset the password. Refer the following weblink for steps:

If this does not help, there are multiple other ways in the following weblink:

Re: how to unlock Compaq Presario cq57

How do I unlock my laptop without using my password which I cannot remember in its entirety?  I think that the password problem may be a case sensitive issue.  I have spent many hours on this matter and would like to use the computer.  Thanks for your help.

My Compaq Presario CQ57 needs an administrator password. After 3 incorrect passwords it has displayed system disabled with this code 51873873.
