On a working computer, Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".

Use this software to create bootable media.

Boot your computer from this media, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the password.

Power-off.

Restart, after disconnecting the bootable media.

When prompted for the password, press ENTER.

Set a new password.

I tried that probably did something wrong. Now bitlocker has set in ive tried everything to bypass so i opened her up and there is no hdd on the left side. Im guessing that could be some of the issue as well.

> there is no hdd ...

 

Interesting.

 

Two options:

 

1. find the SATA sockets on the motherboard, and trace the SATA cables -- one to the CD/DVD device, and one to the HDD (wherever it is "hiding").

 

2. If your computer has no such SATA cables, then your computer does not have a CD/DVD device, and might not have a HDD. Some computers have a small-capacity (32GB or 64GB) SSD (Solid State Device) connected directly to a socket on the motherboard, instead of a HDD.

As you are composing a "reply", you should see:

 

  Rich Text  HTML  Preview

 

Under it, you should see:

 

    B I U S (triangle) </> (turn left) (happy face) (chain-links) (camera) Photos ...

 

Take a picture, with your smart-phone, and copy the picture to your computer.

Then, click the word "Photos", to select the image, and to copy it into your reply, in the same way that I inserted the image (above) of the "M.2" memory-card.

 

Here's a link to an image of the SATA ports on the motherboard, with one SATA cable attached:

How many SATA cables are attached to your motherboard?

Does one cable lead to the CD/DVD device?

Does one cable lead to a HDD?

 

Do you see a 'M.2' socket somewhere on the motherboard?
