Re: Forgot admin password or power on password and didn't set up reset

Which password? 

 

If the Windows login password, then on another computer, Google-search for "nordahl offline password".

Download this free software, and burn it to a CD-recordable.

Boot your computer, selecting your CD/DVD drive as the first boot-drive.

Use the software to "blank" the Windows password.

 

If it is a power-on password, or it is an administrative password to enter BIOS SETUP,

and your computer is a "desktop" computer, namely:

   http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04394427

there is a procedure for moving a small "jumper" on the motherboard,

that will remove either of those passwords.

 

Which password are you trying to eliminate?

From: http://support.hp.com/ca-en/product/HP-110-314-Desktop-PC-(ENERGY-STAR)/6879077/model/7186477/docume...

 

The BIOS password is used to protect BIOS settings from unwanted changes.
 
To erase the BIOS password, follow these steps:
 
  1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Move the jumper to from pins 2 and 4 (default) to pins 4 and 6, then move the jumper back to default.
  3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
End
