HP compaq 7600- asking for administrator password

Is it a bios password or windows password?



For Windows Password, As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:

1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
Windows password Recovery software:
for example:Windows Password Recovery Tool. It is easy and convenient to use.




For Bios Password, also two methods.

1st method . Open you computer box and Discharge to the Board manually

2st method . use bios password recovery tool


Hope it help to you.

Hi:

 

I believe if you don't have an administator password on your PC, just hit the enter key at the prompt (leave password blank).

There is also a lot of password recovery software out there to either to remove, change, or hack the Windows admin password on HP. As for free program, Ophcrack is the best choice. But without basic password cracking knowledge you may can't get it to work. The recovery time mainly depends on the complexity of your passwords. In other words, if your password is too long or you are computer newbies, it doesn’t work at all. So you had better try the most powerful and easy-to-use windows password reset tool such as Windows Password Key.

You need to use another computer to create a PCUnlocker Live USB drive, then get your HP Compaq computer to boot from the USB drive and it allows you to reset your forgotten Windows admin password instantly. Here are step-by-step instructions:
