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?

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
