Windows XP Supervisor password

Q: Windows XP Supervisor password

I am trying to change the settings in the content section of Internet Options. I am unable to do this because I can't remember the password, or even if I created a password. That notwithstanding, I have tried to change the administrator and the passwords. That doesn't work. This all started when I went to a particular web site, it said the "content advisor" would not allow. I have never seen this before on my home computer. Can anyone help? If anymore info is needed, I will be happy to provide.

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.)

How do you reset the supervisor password in windows XP. I did as the manual said, which was disconnect the PC and move jumper from pin 1-2 to 2-3. Boot up and shut down at the desktop. Press the power on button, replace the jumper to 1-2, then restart the PC. It didn't work. I have also tried removing the CMOS battery. Help would be appreciated.

When trying to choose (with F12) a different boot device than 1st harddrive (e.g. CD/DVD, USB-Stick, SD-Card), the system starts only form the built in harddisk. When trying to enter the BIOS (with ESC followed by F1) one can see just a very small selection just of the 1st BIOS page.

All further details (e.g. Boot Priority/Sequence) are not accessible. There is NOT set a User password and/or a HDD password.
When pressing the INS key before switching on the notebook, it asks for a supervisor Password. Someone has obviously set it and I don't have it. With the normal Toshiba Utilities (e.g. "Assist") it's not possible to remove it, also the LPT-Port connector or the Boot diskette (1st 5 Bytes of 2nd sector modified) doesn't help.

What can resolve this problem.

Hello all,

I'm in a bit of a bind. I'm working on a computer that needs the boot order changed, so I can install an OS upgrade (2000 to XP Pro) and I can't get into the BIOS without the supervisor password. The individual who had/worked on the computer before has long gone, so that option is out. The default stuff won't work (admin, exec, password...and so on). I seem to remember that you can dislodge the battery, or switch the jumpers (although different motherboards might have different stuff), but It's been several years since I've had this problem and I can't remember the solution.

A:Do you have a vb script to set a new BIOS Supervisor Password?

It is not possible to set a password with the WMI interface when a password does not already exist.  This is for security reasons.  Otherwise it would be possible to have malware which runs in Windows, sets passwords that you don't know, and locks you out of your system. It can be done in DOS.  Some customers boot a DOS disk as part of their unboxing procedure to set a known password.  Then they can change it by WMI later (if they want to).  Some large customers order their systems from the Lenovo factory with a known password installed, talk to your account manager if you fall into that category.

My last Thinkpad W500 had an option in the BIOS for the Hard Drive password.  I see no option in the P70 UEFI Firmware.  Does the Supervisor password automatically  send a password to the storage devices?  If so, does it work through the Intel RST RAID1 as well? I'm running four storage devices in my P70.  Two Samsung 850 EVO M.2 using the Intel RST RAID1 for UEFI, Windows, and /boot for Linux, and two 960GB SanDisk SSD's for my Linux rpool ZFS mirror. It would just be nice to know for certain that the passwords are enabled on the drives now as well.

A:P70 Supervisor Password For Storage Devices

Supervisor password is not related to HDD password.
 
From my quick check here, as long as "RAID Mode Option" is set as "Enabled" and "M.2 SSD" (regardless of whether drives are configured in an array or not), the HDD password option goes away.

In the Thinkpad BIOS, is there any way to access the pre-boot environment with only the supervisor password if a HDD password is also set? I note that at least on my machine (X1 Carbon 5th Gen), with both a supervisor password and a hard disk1 user password set (I have set different passwords for each), I am always prompted first for the HDD password to enter any pre-boot environment, including:BIOS (pressing F1 at Lenovo screen)the boot order menu (pressing F12 at Lenovo screen)the boot options menu (pressing enter at Lenovo screen)However, for any of these functions, I am not accessing the disk drive and not booting into the drive, but rather trying to access only the pre-boot environment in the BIOS. So why does the system ask for the HDD password? I can see a scenario where perhaps one needs to boot via USB for troubleshooting, or the HDD password is forgotten or some other issue where only the BIOS needs to be entered and not the disk drive.  Is there perhaps a certain key press at the HDD password prompt to switch to a "BIOS only" mode? (I tried the various function keys at the disk drive password prompt, but it didn't do anything) Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Supervisor password is very important security feature and some kind of ?user reset? is not possible. You can cancel it but you must know the right password to confirm that you are the real notebook owner.

Toshiba service provider in your country can help you with this. You must just approve that you are notebook owner and they can cancel it for you. Of course you must pay for it.

As far as I know there are several techniques for password removal and it depends on notebook model.

Contact nearest Toshiba ASP and ask for help.

A:Philips IQON Supervisor password disable

Hi

Not sure what you mean by startup, is this when the PC switches on, or once you get to the XP\2K logon screen.

If its the former then its a case of open the PC and look inside for a small flat battery, remove it and flick the power siwtch a few times, then replace it and power on the PC, this should clear any passwords on the BIOS, also there may be a jumper on the board that will do the same job, I suggest either reading the manual for the motherboard or if you dont have it, google the board and download it, doing this will reset the BIOS to defaults so you will need to reset the time\date and a few other things.

There is a full guide here on BIOS resets.

If its the OS then there are several methods to removing the password, one is a bootdisk from here, its a bit complicated to do and you must read the instructions, but it does work.

Another method is to delete the sam file, this stores all passwords on the system and is found in the path c:\windows(winnt)system32\config, however this method requires you to slave the drive to another Install, as the file cant be deleted when windows is running.

Lastly there are brute force programs that will decrypt the password, but are complicated to use and require a knowledge of the OS.

SO go for the disk.

Regards

I do remember that the character limit for this password was short (maybe 6,7,or 8 characters long). If I knew the (default?) character limit or length I could rule out dozens of other passwords in my memory and gain access to my computer that much sooner. Ive read every manual and users guide for my laptop and there is no other method readily available, no bypass solution so it is imperative that I remember what I set.. Thanks for your time.

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help ?

We have just started to put a supervisor password onto our Tecra A11 laptops so our pupils cannot set passwords on the hard drive etc.

To get into the BIOS and set a BIOS password, we press F2 as the machine starts.
We then go into the security option, then supervisor password.
Having entered the password we want to use twice, we press F10 to save etc.

The machine starts ok and goes in to windows without a hitch.

The problem we have now is that we cannot get back into the bios at all.
As the machine starts we press the F2 key as before but unlike previously the screen just remains blank and the 'Toshiba leading Innovation >>>' screen no longer appears.

If we keep our finger on the F" key or keep pressing it the laptop just restarts without ever getting to the BIOS screen where I assume we will get asked for the supervisor password we set earlier?

Is there another key we should be pressing as the laptop starts ?

I should add we have added a supervisor password for the BIOS security screen on three of our laptops and all three have the same issue.

Thanks

In some cases you need to press the "INS" key while Toshiba logo appears.

Then a prompt for the Supervisor Password would appear and if the password is certified then the BIOS could be entered by pressing the "F2" key.

ORa 32-bit version of WinPE?For organizations with an appreciable number of assets (I'd say anything above 200), a manual process is just not going to cut it.  We may not be an 80k asset shop, but touching well over 1k assets is just not feasible.  Dell & HP have solutions for this, so the 'malware scare' canned response is insufficient.

Hi all,

I think thereis a bug in the M780 BIOS. I have set only a Supervisor password on all 100-odd machines that we have. There are no other security settings enabled and when a machine goes into deep sleep (ie. after a few hours) they get prompted for the Supervisor password when waking the machine.

All machines are running the latest BIOS (2.10) and WIndows 7 64bit. As we are a school we want to prevent the kids from booting from CDs etc.,

I have configured the Security section of BIOS like so;

User Password: Not Registered
Supervisor Password: Registered
HDD1/SSD1 Password Mode: &lt;User Only&gt;
HDD User Password: Not Registered
TPM: &lt;Disabled&gt;

Any help or confirmation of the issue would be appreciated. Cheers!

UPDATE: I have since discovered that the problem exists when waking from hibernation, not from sleep. I have disbaled this via Group Policy for the "Balanced" power plan which has resolved my immediate issue, although this behaviour still shouldn't occur.

Hi,

yesterday i set the bios/supervisor password.

When i now turn on the notebook, i can see the Toshiba - Leading innovations screen and then it goes dark and won't boot any further.

The harddisk / fan / graphics card etc is working - but i don't see anything nor do i get some kind of prompt or shell or whatsoever.

I tried all those "Press, ESC, Press F2, Press F1, Press INS" stuff, nothing worked out.
I removed the battery for several mins while pressing the power button, nothing.

Maybe somebody has some kind of clue whats wrong with this maschine....

A:Portege R830-1EE: Supervisor / Bios password - No Boot or login prompt

Hi

Did you use some high ASCII character like ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? etc in your BIOS / Supervisor password?

In the past the usage of such characters prevented the notebook from booting up.
In such case you had to contact the service partner in order to solve this problem.

Have a Satellite PRO S300 (PSSB0A-06500T) which is BSOD-ing with Stop 7B and I want to get into the full part of the BIOS so I can reset boot order to enable me to re-install Win XP.

Esc - F1 just gets me into the restricted part of Page 1 of the ACPI BIOS set-up. I know the Supervisor password! So how do I get to a password prompt that will allow me into both pages of the BIOS set-up.

I have tried F12 on boot to attempt to get into the boot options on the Toshiba splash screen, but that does not work.

I think you hold down a button during power on. Try holding the "INS" key to get the supervisor password prompt to appear.
