I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I forgot my hp probook 4230s bios password. I tried the combination keys for reseting the bios but i don't know exactly how to do this process. I also tried some software methods like cmospwd and some other methods but failed.I also tried removing the batteries both main and the time battery for about an hour but nothing is working. Please help if there is any solution. Thanks.

Hi,Skipped BIOS version F.61 rev.A which contained Intel Video BIOS update. After installing the latest BIOS version F.63 rev.A, the VBIOS version is still the same according to the HWINFO32 program. Is it possible to update the video BIOS separately, and how to do that? Yet I'm not sure if the VBIOS is worth updating. Any help? Thanks.Read other answers

My friend set up the BIOS administrator password and now he forgot it. I need to boot liveOS but I can't as Secure Boot is active. After 3 wrong attempts, the screen is showing different error codes, like - " System Disabled A [F0C439E6] " plz help
Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot. This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. Regards, DP-KRead other 1 answers

I forgot my all my password including the BIOS password. I am lucky to have installed finger identifyer Else I wouldn't come in at all. I dont talk really computerlanguage its all new for me and hope that someone can help me.... Thank you in advance perkymang
Hello perkymang, We are sorry as there is no master password or generator for EliteBooks or ProBooks. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again !! **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem.

Here's my tale of woe. I'm trying to help my friend. Her daughter, months ago, set up her then new HP Pavillion dv1000 (actually dv1519US) notebook computer running Windows XP Home Edition. She made jerself the Administrator but gave her mother, the computer's owner, only a limited user account. She then gave her mother the computer. The mother, my friend, uses the computer infrequently. Recently she was unable to get online wirelessly and asked for my help. I am typing this on the subject computer. I was able to get my friend online, but when I sought to install a couple of applications and uninstall a couple of others I discovered that my friend did not have administrator privileges. So I tried to logon using the daughter's user account but found that neither my friend or her daughter could remember the daughter's password. They could not find the recovery disks. I contacted HP and purchased the recovery disks. Today I received two disks in the mail. One is the Operating System CD. The other is the Application and Driver Recovery DVD. I wanted to restore the computer to its original configuration, wiping out everything and starting anew. I put the Operating System CD in the tray and booted the computer. The Press any key to change boot order message appeared and I hit a key. A message appeared that said something like Checking computer's hardware configuration, and then...nothing. I am unable to get the Operating System CD to go any furth... Read more
If this were a desktop, I would suggest removing the battery - letting the beast sit for a minute or so - and then reinsert the battery. That has cleared admin passwords for me. The other option might be to boot the system in safe mode. I have found in the past with XP that if User "A" is set up as an admin and User "B"has limited access that there is usually a third master Admin account that never shows up unless the safe mode is used. From there you should be able to remove any password protection. If that doesn't work, try http://www.maximumpc.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=36&sid=89c1f6732c064ff878879b9c9e6f2f28 .

Hi everyone i have just installed win 7 in my new pc and forgot to give admin permission for the user and joined it into Domain....I would like to reset admin password..........
The easiest thing to do is to ask your domain administrator to do that for you, as all domain admins have admin privs on machines joined to the domain. But if that is not possible, you'll have to poke around for one of those rescue cds that allows you to change reset the admin password by booting from a cd.Read other 29 answers

try open the control panel, then the User Accounts, ( if 2k is like XP ) and there you can change the way you log onto windows, and create or delete a user account, then re-boot into your new user profile.

When it prompts for a password, don't enter anything, just hit enter. If that doesn't work, see below methods. There are 2 methods you can try. Method 1 - Reset password from another Administrator account:Log on to Windows by using an Administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start Windows XP in Safe Mode (to boot in Safe Mode, hit F8 repeatedly at the boot up screen).Click Start.Click Run.In the Open box, type ?control userpasswords2?.Click Ok.Click the user account that you forgot the password for.Click Reset Password.Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes.Click Ok.Method 2 - Try command prompt for the "reset password trick":Log in with any valid account.Open the command prompt.Type: net user (you should get a list of accounts)Type: net user Administrator *Type: net user (any account on that list) *It prompts for a password. Enter one, then enter it again when prompted to confirm.Then try to log on as 'Administrator' with your new password.Read other 9 answers

Thanks to Augie 65 for her prompt answer to my question. I visited the site and learned I must have a working floppy drive ( I don't) or cd burner capabilities (I don't). My problem remains that I can't remember the administrator password and therefore cannot install new software, among other things. Is it possible to delete the operating system and reinstall it again, thereby being able to create a new administrator password? Any other options that don't call for me to use a floppy or a cd burner would also be appreciated. Thanks
If you have everything you need for a reinstall, that would be one possibility. Just make sure you have all the necessary drivers for all your hardware. Too often people blindly recommend doing a format and reinstall and need to make sure all that is in place first.
You can also backup or document any important data or things like e-mail configurations before you do as well.
Also, if you want, I would be glad to mail you a bootable CD with the software to reset your password. Send me an e-mail if you like.
