Forgot Admin Password, as well as BIOS boot up password

Q: Forgot Admin Password, as well as BIOS boot up password

Call me a dunce....but I have a problem. I locked myself out of my administrator account and I can't go into safe mode because I also forgot my BIOS password. I really don't want to have to open up my computer and remove the BIOS, is there any other solutions that don't involve turning off my computer?

Im running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3

Preferred Solution: Forgot Admin Password, as well as BIOS boot up password

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.)

Hello, I gave my notebook to a friend of mine a year ago and they set a bios password that they can't remember.I called HP Kenya and they told me to contact their agent whom advised me to buy a new motherboard.Is there something that can be done other than disposing what I have? I only need to enable the virtualisation in the bios and have to access it first.

Hi all

i am currently using my laptop at the moment as i cant get into my main computer. I was trying to set it up so that when i start up it goes all the way to the desktop without putting in a password in the log in screen. I went into user accounts and noticed that there was 2 accounts usually there is one. One was called mcmullan which is the one i use and another called administrator dont know about this one. I was able to delete the mcmullan account (big mistake) but unable to delete the other one, so i thought it would be ok. I rebooted and it came to the log in screen with - user name- administrator i now need a password to get in, i have tried all the passwords i would use including leaving it blank but no luck, is there anyway to get past this, also i noticed that safe mode wont work it gets to mup.sys and then the pc will reboot back to normal start up and end back at the login screen.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
